In other news, Guns N’ Roses recently added a especially special cover to their setlist on their Australian tour: ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’ by AC/DC.

The song itself has been covered by Guns N’ Roses some 156 times, including at the subsequent Sydney date of their current tour, with a recording of it featured on the band’s eponymous 1988 EP.

Last Thursday’s show (November 24), however, marked the first time that they’d played the song live since 2018.

It was especially significant given the band’s relationship with AC/DC. In 2016, Guns N’ Roses singer Rose joined AC/DC as their lead vocalist, filling in for Brian Johnson on that year’s ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour.

The following year, AC/DC’s Angus Young joined Guns N’ Roses in Sydney to perform both ‘Whole Lotta Roses’ and ‘Riff Raff’.
