Guns N' Roses kicked off their European/UK summer tour with a big bang, busting out a new cover of AC/DC's Walk All Over You," as well as some classic Guns gems that have been on the shelf for two decades – "Reckless Life" from the 1988 Lies EP, and the Appetite for Destruction version of "You're Crazy," which haven't been performed live by GNR since 1993 and 1991, respectively.

GNR are of course no strangers in the AC/DC orbit. They would regularly perform the Aussie rockers' "Whole Lotta Rosie" throughout their first incarnation and was widely found on many Guns live bootlegs in the late 80s and early 90s. And, of course, there was Axl Rose's brief tenure with AC/DC, filling in for Brian Johnson in 2016.

In Portugal, the set list also included the two newest GNR tracks, "Hard Skool" and "Absurd," that latter originally a song called "Silkworms" that was performed on the Chinese Democracy tour but was updated and recorded by the current GNR lineup in 2021.
