About Axl's performance with AC/DC thus far, Angus Young said: "He's doing very well, and it's very good that… I mean, under the situation that we had, it was very good that he volunteered and said, 'Hey, if I can help, let me try.' So he's been very good. And he had to learn a lot of songs very quickly, and he's done a great job."
AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams added: "Axl has done a fabulous job. And he's almost out of his chair now. He's mobile, and he's enjoying himself. It's been really good."
Added Angus: "His leg's repairing, so each show we've been doing he's been getting up and moving around a lot more. So it adds more to the show."
About AC/DC's future plans beyond the current European tour and the upcoming North American dates, Angus said: "We were committed to finishing this tour, so that's been our main goal, and Axl helping us. I know he's very excited; he keeps saying, can he do more? But we don't really know at the end how we will go from here. But we wanna get this tour, which we were committed to doing, we wanna finish it."
