AC/DC performed their hit song “If You Want Blood” thirteen years later with the help of their temporary frontman, Axl Rose.
Their performance of “If You Want Blood” in Marseille, France last May 13 could be a follow-up to their Portugal concert last week, 92 Citi FM remarked. The publication surmised the band is pulling out songs from their catalogue to “please the fans” even more since they’ve received great reviews since their team up with Axl Rose.
Indeed, Rose doesn’t seem the least bit restricted by his confinement to a throne on stage. The setlist for the Marseille show included 20 songs plus three encores, Blabber Mouth reported.
“If You Want Blood” is the third song AC/DC revisited since Rose began performing with them in Portugal, Rolling Stone revealed. They performed “Rock n’ Roll Damnation” for their first concert with Rose in Lisbon, Portugal. Afterwards, they played “Riff Raff” from their album “Powerage.” It was the first time they performed both songs since 2003 and 1979, respectively.
Axl Rose broke his foot during a performance with Guns N’ Roses several weeks ago. Nevertheless, he’s managed to exceed everyone’s expectations as he shoots from the hip, the Inquisitr remarked. The publication noted how many critics doubted if he could fill in for Brian Johnson and “do justice to the AC/DC sound.” Rose proved doubters wrong as his performance merited a public apology from cynics. The Inquisitr cited the apology published by TeamRock.com.
The closing remarks of an apology to Axl Rose from TeamRock.com is as follows.
“So hey, please consider this an apology Axl. We’re sorry for doubting you. There was us thinking that this was all about ego and pay cheques, when in fact you’ve proven yourself to be rock ‘n’ roll’s own Good Samaritan, thoughtfully guiding a weary OAP across the highway from Hell (if you’ll excuse the clumsy mixed metaphors and misappropriated song title). Fair f***s to you, we didn’t see this coming at all. Good job, man, keep it up. From those about to rock, we salute you.”
