Axl rocks AC/DC: First reviews

The reviews are in for the first gig with Axl Rose replacing Brian Johnson as singer for legendry Aussie rockers AC/DC. The concert was in Lisbon. Here's how a few of the reviews went.   

 Rolling Stone magazine reported, 'Rose actually seemed happy to play a different role here. From his opening greeting of "Nice to meet you!" – just five minutes later than billed – he was a deferential and pleasant presence between songs and an energized, brooding one during them. He remained seated throughout the main set, his leg still encased in a brace, but even his perch was more low-key than during the recent Guns N' Roses shows: It resembled a humble office chair that had been jazzed up at the last minute with a few lumps of metal and some devil horns. But while Rose's body might be ailing, his voice remained in great shape. From the opening salvo of "Rock or Bust," "Shoot to Thrill" and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be," it was clear that, musically at least, the GN'R man is a great fit for AC/DC.

The Guardian's Michael Hann even gave the gig five stars, noting Rose added "menace" to several Bon Scott-era classics. "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap loses its cartoonish aspect, and becomes the bar-room chatter of a psychopath," he wrote.

Maybe AC/DC aren't quite yet ready to travel the Highway to Hell....according to the latest reviews. 

KEEP ROCKIN'.
