Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music's greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls' and over two hours of High Voltage Rock 'n' Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing.
Both Bon Scott (Ashy) and Brian Johnson (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and 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 in a night of bedevilled Rock and Roll.
The thundering freight train of a rhythm section keeps it all meticulously together with Dan as the metronomic Malcolm Young on rhythm guitar, Ed as the mercurial Cliff Williams on Bass Guitar, and Paul behind the kit as Phil Rudd and Chris Slade rolled into one.
The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados! We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway to hell are all there, and 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!
Close your eyes you hear AC/DC, open your eyes you see AC/DC!
Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE
