Last night (May 7), AC/DC began a European leg of their Rock or Bust tour with Axl Rose as the lead singer. The entire 22-song, two-hour concert at the Passeio Maritimo de Algés in Lisbon, Portugal, was recorded by a fan who was seated up front, and we’ve embedded it below.

According to the YouTube page, the person who uploaded it captured the attendee’s Periscope stream. In recent years, AC/DC have been vigilant about scrubbing unauthorized videos from the internet, so if you want to see and hear what Rose fronting AC/DC sounds like, now’s your chance before it gets taken down.

In addition to the new man in front, AC/DC gave tour debuts to a couple of songs, both of which came from 1978’s Powerage. At the 27:35 mark of the video, you can hear Rose tell a story that introduces the first performance of “Rock ‘n’ Roll Damnation,” since Oct. 21, 2003 at the Carling Apollo Hammersmith in London. In the encore, at the 1:49:33 mark, they played “Riff Raff,” which setlist.fm says has not been played in concert by AC/DC since Oct. 30, 1979 at the Apollo in Manchester, England. However, Guns N’ Roses performed it when Angus Young sat in with the band three weeks ago at the Coachella Festival.

The band also created their own video of fans raving about the concert as they exited the venue, which is embedded below. AC/DC’s next stop is Seville, Spain on Tuesday, and they’ll remain in Europe through June 12, when they wrap it up in Aarhus, Denmark.
