AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson surprised a sold-out Billy Joel audience on Friday night (3/21), when he took the stage about halfway through the set to lead the band through an impressively accurate take of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long."

Joel reportedly announced a special guest would be coming out that was one of the best bands he'd ever seen live.

AC/DC has been quiet as of late. Their most recent album, "Black Ice," was released in 2008 and they toured behind the album through 2010. Health issues within the band reportedly held up work on a follow-up, though Johnson has recently confirmed plans to record this year and follow that release with an AC/DC 40th anniversary tour.

For his part, Joel has only recently begun performing formal concerts again, and will tour this year around his residency at Madison Square Garden, where he's performing one show a month for as long as they continue to sell out.

At this point, shows through December are on sale, and only December still has some ticket availability.

Friday night's show was the third event of his Madison Square Garden series.

Joel also guested on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week, where he and Fallon shared the mic on "You May Be Right."

The The Tonight Show appearance was part of the rollout of Joel's CD and DVD/BluRay release of the documentary "A Matter of Trust: The Bridge to Russia," which follows Joel's historic Russian tour of 1987.

The package drop on May 20th, though the documentary is currently airing on Showtime.

Joel will also take the helm of a Sirius/XM channel later this month.
