Bruce Springsteen Covers AC/DC's Highway to Hell
Bruce Springsteen surprised fans in Perth, Australia on Friday night (February 7th) when he opened his set with a cover of AC/DC's 1979 hit "Highway to Hell." You can check out the video below.

AsĀ Rolling Stone notes, late AC/DC vocalist Bon Scott grew up near Perth. "Highway to Hell" was his final record with the group.

The cover version came to a head with a four way guitar duel between the Boss, Nils Lofgren, Steven Van Zandt and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, who continues to tour with the E Street Band.

The Boss's latest, a collection of covers and reworked songs titled "High Hopes," was released last month. His tour of Australia and New Zealand will continue until March 2nd.
