Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The unique six-man tribute to rock musics greatest band
AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls' and over two hours of High Voltage
Rock & 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 'Dave' Bon Scott and 'Podge’ Brian Johnson present to
take you on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember.
Originally fronting AC/DC was the legendary 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 were
sampling global success for the first time. Dave, a stalwart over many years in his uncanny
role as AC/DC’s vivacious vocalist delivers songs from the first half dozen albums from Dirty
Deeds to Highway to Hell with Bon’s inimitable attitude, style and charisma.
Podge, then dons the flat cap as Geordie vocalist, Brian Johnson, whom 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 albums of all time. Podge beautifully presents his half of the show vocally and he
brings the Live/Wire show bang up to date with more classic tracks right up to AC/DC’s
hugely successful recent album, Rock or Bust.
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 delivers 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 a livewire during his two-hour plus 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 you are
expected to join in ! There will 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 and Back in Black,
Rosie and 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!
Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE
