Brian Johnson Helps Billy Joel Welcome 2015 With an AC/DC Classic

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson rang in the new year last night by joining Billy Joel onstage to perform one of the band’s all-time classic songs.

As you can see in the brief, fan-shot video above, Johnson was onstage with Joel at midnight, when they welcomed 2015 with a rendition of AC/DC’s ‘You Shook Me All Night Long.’ Joel was playing the Amway Center in Orlando last night when Johnson joined him.

This isn’t the first time Johnson sat in with Joel. They performed the very same song back in March during one of Joel’s monthly Madison Square Garden residency shows in New York. Back in August, Joel played another AC/DC classic, ‘Highway to Hell,’ with Dead Daisies frontman Jon Stevens at Madison Square Garden.

Joel wasn’t the only one to ring in the new year with some AC/DC. Gov’t Mule played an entire set of the band’s numbers with Slash‘s singer Myles Kennedy last night in New York.

Maybe Johnson is getting his famous pipes in shape for AC/DC’s tour this year. Some European dates have already been announced, but word is, the band will hit North America sometime in the late summer to promote its new album, ‘Rock or Bust.’
