The AC/DC “Rock of Bust” tour — aka, the Axl Rose Live Band Karaoke Extravaganza — is well underway as the rockers make their way through Europe. Last night, the band performed in Prague, Czech Republic and delivered a special treat at the end of their set.
Though they’ve been keeping a pretty consistent setlist since Rose joined the band, they managed to sneak a rare deep cut into the encore. AC/DC hadn’t performed the Highway to Hell track “Touch Too Much” since their original singer, Bon Scott, died in 1980. In fact, it’d been since a December 14th, 1979 in Nice, France that the song had been played during a concert. (The band performed it on Top of the Pops just days before Scott’s death.) On Sunday, AC/DC dusted it off and brought it back for Rose to belt out in Prague.
Sure, there’s something kind of uncomfortable about seeing a bunch of aging rockers play a song with lyrics like, “She wanted it hard, wanted it fast/ She liked it done medium rare.” Then again, this is the band whose lead guitarist still insists on dressing like a schoolboy at age 61.
