AC/DC perform ‘Live Wire’ with Axl Rose on the ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour – watch

This is the first time AC/DC have played the track live since 1982

AC/DC were joined by Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose last night (August 27) for the first night of their 10-date ‘Rock Or Bust’ US tour together.

During the show in Greensboro, North Carolina, the American rockers played the song ‘Live Wire’, which is the first time AC/DC have performed the track live since 1982.

‘Live Wire’ originally appeared on the band’s 1975 album ‘T.N.T.’.

These 10 ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour dates will be the last with Axl Rose, who joins the dates fresh from Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour.

AC/DC recruited Rose after their long-time frontman Brian Johnson was advised against performing live on medical grounds.

But it’s hoped that Johnson can rejoin AC/DC. Rolling Stone reported that Johnson met with in-ear technology specialist Stephen Ambrose for treatment of his hearing loss.

Ambrose’s ADEL hearing technology – which absorbs harmful pneumatic pressures inside your ear canal – could help restore Johnson’s hearing.


“It works,” Johnson said in a statement. “It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now.”
