Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose made his debut as the frontman for AC/DC this weekend in Lisbon. Rose became the lead singer for the “Rock or Bust” tour after the band announced Brian Johnson’s departure in April.

Though there are mixed reactions (most of the YouTube comments are unkind), Rolling Stone said Rose was a “pleasant presence” and The Guardian said he “delivered a masterly first appearance.”

But you should make your own judgement. Watch their performance of “Shoot to Thrill” below.
