A HIGH VOLTAGE NIGHT OUT: TWO AC/DC LIVE TRIBUTES AT AMPLIFIER & THE NEWPORT HOTEL ON AUGUST 9
CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF HIGHWAY TO HELL
To celebrate Australian hard rock icons AC/DC’s classic album Highway To Hell’s recent 40th anniversary, Perth’s Amplifier Capitol and Fremantle’s Newport Hotel will stage two special AC/DC live tributes on Friday, 9 August. Both shows are free entry, with doors opening at 8pm.
Livewire will take to the Newport Hotel stage, performing some of the choicest cuts from Highway To Hell plus selected hits and rarities. At Amplifier, The Aussie AC/DC Experience will belt out handpicked Highway To Hell hits, alongside other classic tracks and easter eggs from the band’s extensive back catalogue.
1979’s Highway to Hell, which featured the title track Highway to Hell plus hits Girls Got Rhythm, Touch Too Much and Night Prowler, was AC/DC’s fifth studio album released internationally. It was the band’s first LP to break the US Top 100, eventually reaching #17 on the charts, and the second highest selling AC/DC album (behind Back in Black). Generally considered one of the greatest hard rock albums ever made, Highway to Hell was also the last album featuring lead singer and one-time Fremantle resident, Bon Scott.
So prep the mullets and don the leathers! With prizes for the best Acca Dacca t-shirts, these high voltage tribute shows are an opportunity for fans to celebrate one of Australian rock’s most enduring and beloved acts.
