GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose joined Billy Joel on stage this past Friday (July 28) at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota to sing two songs: a cover of AC/DC's "Highway To Hell" and Joel's own "Big Shot".

About ninety minutes into the show, Joel announced, "I'm going to bring out a friend of mine … please welcome Axl Rose." And with that, Joel strapped on a guitar and handed the microphone to Rose, who took over on lead vocals for "Highway To Hell". Axl returned during the encore for "Big Shot".

Rose will return to Minneapolis Sunday, July 30 to headline U.S. Bank Stadium with GUNS N' ROSES

Joel has frequently performed "Highway To Hell" during his concerts in recent years, often recruiting his roadie Chainsaw to sing lead vocals.

Rose did a string of European and North American concerts with AC/DC in 2016, mostly to fan and critical acclaim.

It is unknown whether Rose will continue singing with AC/DC. The band's future remains in doubt after the band completed its world tour in support of 2014's "Rock Or Bust", a cycle that saw a massive turnover in the group's personnel. Guitarist and sole original member Angus Young has not yet indicated whether the group will continue recording and touring.

In March 2016, AC/DC's singer of 35 years, Brian Johnson, had to leave the band's North American tour after doctors told him he might lose his hearing, while 40-year bassist Cliff Williams announced his retirement at the rescheduled trek's conclusion.

The lineup that completed the tour consisted of Williams, Angus Young, Rose, Chris Slade on drums and Angus's nephew Stevie Young on guitar.
