I had a blast at manchester, it was a fantastic atmosphere and the band were brilliant.

Axl was something else though, really blown away by him.

If they come near you, don't think about it, go!

I suppose it should come as no surprise that the return of AC/DC to Manchester was met with some trepidation with the arrival of legendary warbler Axl Rose taking over the vocals from established Brian Johnson.

There really was no need.

A huge crowd saw a band that have been around for forty years put on a show of sheer class.

Professional is the word to sum it up, oh and exhilarating, spectacular and very very loud.

From the opening track 'Rock or Bust' all the way through the set Axl provided the perfect vocals to a set made up of mostly older AC/DC classics.

Make no mistake though this is Angus Young's band. At 61, the man shows no sign of slowing down and if there is a better showman and guitarist on the planet I am yet to see him.

Seems as though Brian could be back shortly:

Nevertheless I am proud of Axl for pulling it off :bow: :rockon:
An now that you've been broken down
 Got your head out of the clouds
 You're back down on the ground
 And you don't talk so loud
 An you don't walk so proud
 Any more, and what for...

Yeah. I agree with the "proud of Axl for pulling it off" part. I'm pretty sure this was always intended to be a pretty temporary thing to begin with. I also seem to recall that Brian Johnson saying that he was probably going to continue recording with them in the studio.

With Cliff now saying he's retiring after their American tour, looks like Angus might want to hang on to Axl as much as possible. It's obvious Brian isn't coming back.

I would love to see Axl and Angus set up a new band together.

I wouldn't say that. Apparently he stated:
“While the outcome is uncertain, my attitude is optimistic.”

Brian Johnson has met with an inventor hoping to provide him with newly developed in-ear monitors that could help him return to the stage without risking further hearing loss — and he says he came away “amazed.”

As previously reported, the former AC/DC singer was contacted by Stephen Ambrose after word got out that he’d been forced to suspend touring activity — and ultimately had to leave the lineup — on the advice of doctors who warned that he risked total hearing loss if he continued to perform.

“Please don’t stop performing,” Ambrose told Johnson. “Help is on the way.”

Nah, Brian's not coming back to AC/DC. Cliff himself said he was leaving because it's a changed animal without Phil, Malcolm and Brian.

I think Cliff would stay and do some shows if Brian were returning, or returning to the studio.

It's obvious Brian won't be coming back.

Any "hints" in reality for this "fact" or just your opinion?  :?:
