The Queens Hall
44 High Street
Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful 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.
Podge Blacksmith dons the flat cap as Geordie vocalist, Brian Johnson, whom AC/DC turned to in order to fill the void left by the untimely death of Bon Scott in 1980. Brian's searing vocals Iced Back in Black, one of the best-selling albums of all time. Podge, a double take for Brian, gives a vocal masterclass which is un-paralleled and in the fortieth year since Back in black Live/Wire play the album in its entirety as well as a powerful selection of songs from across all of AC/DC’s many offerings.
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 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 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!
