Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show: the 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! And they’re going to be shaking the foundations of York Fibbers on Saturday 28th May!

The AC/DC story is over forty years in the making, with two specific eras. The band cover both these as always, with ‘Gary’ Bon Scott and ’Pete’ Brian Johnson ready to take you on the Rock ‘n’ Roll train for a night to remember.

Originally fronting AC/DC was legendary frontman Bon Scott, a wild man of rock ‘n’ 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, 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 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, going so far as to include some tracks from the band’s recent and hugely successful Rock or Bust album.

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 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 has honed his craft over many years, and he is an absolute livewire during his two-hour extravaganza of bedevilled Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The band aim to put you slap-bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you’re expected to join in! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados! They’d be hung, drawn and quartered if they didn’t play all the classics, so Back in Black, Rosie and Highway To Hell are all in 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’re still standing…we salute you!

Long Live AC/DC… Long Live LIVE/WIRE!
