Jon Stevens Performs AC/DC With Billy Joel In New York

The Dead Daisies frontman Jon Stevens joined Billy Joel on stage at Madison Square Garden in New York on Thursday night and knocked out an AC/DC classic.

Stevens, an old friend of Joel, is in the USA touring the USA with Kiss and Def Leppard out front of The Dead Daisies but Thursday was a night off so he hung out backstage at the Joel gig. They last performed ‘Highway To Hell’ together in Sydney in 2013.

Joel has been performing AC/DC often at his shows, even recently with Brian Johnson of AC/DC, but the Thursday night gig was really a surprise to Stevens. Billy Joel called him onstage for the Australian rock classic at the last minute.

The Dead Daisies with Kiss and Def Leppard are touring America all through August. The next show is Friday night in Virginia Beach, VA.
