Watch Axl Rose Join Billy Joel for ‘Highway to Hell’ and ‘Big Shot’ at Dodger Stadium

Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose was a special guest at Billy Joel‘s Dodger Stadium concert in Los Angeles last night, singing AC/DC‘s “Highway to Hell” and Joel’s own “Big Shot.”

With tongue firmly in cheek, Joel kicked off the collaboration by describing “Highway to Hell” as “a spiritual song, a sacred song.” He then introduced Rose, who took lead vocals as Joel prowled the stage (and the empty space where a mosh pit would have been if this was really an AC/DC show) doing his best Malcolm Young impression on rhythm guitar.

Later in the evening, during the encore, Rose returned and proved a perfect fit for Joel’s biting 1979 socialite takedown “Big Shot.”

Both singers have both performed “Highway to Hell” previously. According to, Joel has played it 178 times over the years, most notably with longtime AC/DC singer Brian Johnson taking over vocals on New Year’s Eve 2015.

Last year, after Johnson was medically barred from completing AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour due to hearing loss, Rose stepped in to help the band continue the trek.

Rose will return to his main gig with Guns N’ Roses later this month, kicking off an overseas leg of the Not in This Lifetime tour. The band returns to North America this July for 16 more dates, and you can get full show and ticket information at their official website.
