1. LIVEWIRE AC/DC

WITH a hard rock rhythm section and two very individual singers representing the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras, it’s easy to see why Livewire are considered to be the ultimate tribute AC/DC.

All the classics are included in this explosive performance from Whole Lotta Rosie and Highway To Hell to Thunderstruck and Back In Black.

Close your eyes and you’ll hear AC/DC - open your eyes and you’ll see AC/DC.
