The Assembly, Leamington Spa, 6 November 2009
The rock and
roll train named Live/Wire rolled into The Assembly on Friday with their
excellent tribute to AC/DC, which seems better every time I see it.
the band I had a great start to the evening by being invited down to the
famous dressing room area which I must say is as impressive as the rest of
The set as
always split into two parts firstly Jon Belford on vocals for a selection
of Bon Scott numbers featuring both classics such as High Voltage, Highway
To Hell and Touch Too Much and rarer tracks Gone Shootin' and Shot down in
plays the part strutting around the stage full of Bon Scott's trade mark
swagger swinging the microphone around and playing to the crowd.
Johnson is portrayed by Pete Eccles who again plays the part this time
prowling the stage in Johnson's style and singing with that unmistakable
included classics Hell's Bells, Back in Black and Shoot to Thrill rarer
material Let's Get it Up and What Do You Do For Money Honey and fresh from
latest album Black Ice they performed Rock N Roll Train and awesome War
that is Whole Lotta Rosie was saved for the encores which also included
the sing along T.N.T. and of course the final number complete with firing
cannons was the famous For Those About To Rock (We Salute You).
seeing the band on a large stage which gave Lorne Shippen as Angus plenty
of room to pose and duck walk all over the stage while still playing as
usual note perfect and of course really looking the part in the famous
school boy uniform.
of bass guitar Eddie Clarke, rhythm guitar Shaun Phillips and drums Daz
Wood as always kept it tight and the whole band rocked and by the look of
the fans near the stage they made a few friends on the night and hopefully
they will return soon.
