AC/DC tribute band Live Wire at the Rockingham Hotel tonight

THE rock is about to be put back into Rockingham when AC/DC tribute band Live Wire hits the stage at the Rocky Hotel tomorrow night.

The band will be playing all the Bon Scott classic hits as a tribute to the greatest front man of Australian rock, as well as a classic set of Brian Johnson greats.

The band is returning to Rockingham after performing in front of more than 20,000 people at the foreshore on New Year’s Eve.

It has performed nearly 50 shows since it was formed in 2015.

Guitarist Kevin Gohrt said the Bon Scott songs would include TNT, Highway to Hell, Jailbreak, Dirty Deeds and Let There Be Rock.

“We’ll also be playing some classic songs from the Brian Johnson era such as You Shook Me All Night Long, Thunderstruck and Back in Black,” he said.

Gohrt said special stage effects, including full concert sound and lighting, will be a feature of the Rockingham gig.

In July, Livewire will perform alongside former AC/DC and Angels band members on a national tour starting at the Astor Theatre in Perth.

The band will then head to Sydney as special guests for the “Bon But Not Forgotten” national tour to celebrate Bon Scott’s birthday.
