Live/Wire – The ultimate tribute to one of rock music’s greatest bands of all time – AC/DC!
Complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll, this is a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing! The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show, hit after hit, so get ready to join in and sing along! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados!
Podge Blacksmith, a double take for Brian, gives a vocal masterclass which is un-paralleled, from the classics, right up to AC/DC’s hugely successful recent album, Rock or Bust.
The thundering freight train of a rhythm section keeps it all meticulously together with Dan as the metronomic Malcolm Young on rhythm guitar. Ed appears as the mercurial Cliff Williams on Bass Guitar. Paul sits behind the kit 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 note for note renditions. Simon honed his craft over many years and is a live-wire during his axe fettling duck-walking extravaganza of Rock and Roll.
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!
