Billy Joel and AC/DC's Brian Johnson Perform 'You Shook Me All Night Long'
AC/DC's Brian Johnson joined Billy Joel onstage on Friday (March 21) to perform his band's hit "You Shook Me All Night Long," NME reports.

According to the Consequence of Sound, Billy Joel gave a live debut to his 1982 song "Surprises" and also covered the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." However, the biggest surprise was Johnson joining him on the Madison Square Garden stage in New York to sing the AC/DC anthem.

Joel has been known to cover "Highway to Hell" during his concerts, and has sang the track live with Johnson before, but this is the first time the two have performed "You Shook Me All Night Long" together. You can watch the performance below.

Meanwhile, AC/DC have revealed plans to enter the studio later this year in order to record their first new album since 2008's Brendan O'Brien produced "Black Ice."

The band will also be heading out on a 40th anniversary tour, which, says frontman Brian Johnson, will comprise 40 special gigs. Speaking to Florida radio station Gater 98.7 (via Rolling Stone) Johnson said the band would be heading to a Vancouver studio in May to record their 16th studio album.
