Axl Rose has made his debut as a member of AC/DC in an awkward promotional video for the band’s upcoming Lisbon show in Portugal.
The Guns N’ Roses singer, who has been drafted into the band as a replacement for Brian Johnson, took a break from rehearsals to sit down for the briefest concert ad with new bandmates Angus Young and Cliff Williams.
Looking weary, Young tried to get enthusiastic about Saturday’s gig, which will mark the first time Rose will take the stage with the other members of the Back in Black band, stating, “Lisbon here we come. You know we’re really excited to be here in Portugal. We’re here to give you a great rock show so we hope to see you all there.”
After an awkward pause, Rose added, “Absolutely, we’re very excited to be there,” before Williams added, “We’ll see you on Saturday!”
Brian Johnson was forced to sit out the remainder of AC/DC’s Rock or Bust world tour after doctors advised him against performing over fears that he could suffer permanent hearing loss.
Axl confirmed reports he had joined AC/DC hours before his other rock supergroup, Guns N’ Roses, were set to hit the stage for their first weekend Coachella festival gig last month.
