The UK’s leading tribute to Scottish and Australian rockers AC/DC will return to the Corran Halls in Oban on Saturday October 9 for a night of what promises to be ‘high voltage’ rock and roll.

AC/DC are one of the world’s biggest rock bands. Formed by Glasgow-born brothers Angus and Malcolm Young in 1973, AC/DC went onto record some of the most recognisable rock anthems of all time, including Highway to Hell, Back in Black, You Shook Me All Night Long and many more.

Live/Wire have toured their tribute show for more than 20 years and promise not to just play all the hits but also a sprinkling of songs selected especially for the more aficionado fans as well as a couple of numbers from AC/DC’s new album PRW/UP.

They bring with them a tour bus full of guitars, a wall of Marshall amps and pyrotechnic cannons that will fire to bring the show to a climatic close.

Podge Blacksmith, who performs with the band as lead singer Brian Johnson, said: ‘We are really looking forward to our second visit to the beautiful town of Oban. We had an amazing reception from the hundreds who came to see us at the Corran Halls in 2019. We had reports they heard you sing along as far away as Glasgow! So get your rock heads on and join us for a celebration of all things AC/DC.’
