AC/DC tribute set to rock Wolverhampton.
Live/Wire is THE AC/DC Show. The unique six-man tribute to AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls and over two hours of High Voltage rock’n’roll.
The AC/DC story is over forty years in the making, with two specific eras and the band cover both these as always with both ‘Gary’ Bon Scott and ‘Pete’ Brian Johnson present for a night to remember. Originally fronting AC/DC was legendary front man Bon Scott, a wild man of rock and roll, whose untimely death shocked the world in 1980. This event came at a time when the band was sampling global success for the first time. Gary delivers songs from the band’s first half dozen albums from Dirty Deeds to Highway to Hell with Bon’s inimitable attitude and style.
Pete, then dons the flat cap as Geordie vocalist, Brian Johnson, who AC/DC turned to in order to fill the void left by Bon. Brian’s searing vocals iced Back in Black, one of the best-selling rock albums of all time. Brian has now been with AC/DC for well over thirty years and like a good wine he’s matured with age. Pete brings the Live/Wire show bang up to date with classic ‘Brian’ songs and new tracks .
The thundering freight train of a rhythm section keep it all meticulously together with Dan as the metronomic Malcolm Young on rhythm guitar, Ed, as Cliff Williams on bass, and the monster behind the drums; Daz, as Phil Rudd and Chris Slade rolled into one.
With the rhythm section locked in the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and his note for note heartfelt renditions. Simon honed his craft over many years and is an absolute livewire during his two-hour axe fettling duck-walking extravaganza of bedevilled rock and roll.
The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and the audiences are expected to join in! The songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you!
