In what was only his 2nd 'live' appearance since doctors gave him the dire warning about his hearing loss (Feb. 2016), BRIAN JOHNSON returned to the stage over the weekend at England's Reading Festival to perform the AC/DC classic, "Back In Black" with Alt Rock giants, MUSE. (watch the clip below!) Invited to the stage towards the end of the band's closing set for the festival, Mr. Johnson's appearance on stage was met with great enthusiasm, as the surprised and excited crowd cheered his every move and word. Clearly thrilled and excited at the conclusion of the song, Johnson, addressing the crowd and the members of MUSE said, “That means a lot to me, thank you so much, thank you boys!” and gave a big bear hug to Muse singer Matt Bellamy. Earlier this year, Johnson made a surprise appearance in Oxford, England, joining ROBERT PLANT and PAUL RODGERS on stage for a rousing version of the Motown classic, "Money (That's What I Want)."  Since the diagnosis of his damaged hearing, Johnson has been meeting with the inventors of a new type of in-ear monitor that could potentially allow him to return to his craft full time. It sure would be great to have him back in front of AC/DC.... Rock On!
