AC/DC Rock ‘Live Wire’ in Concert for First Time Since 1982
Welcoming Axl Rose into the fold has provided AC/DC with some new opportunities, as the band has explored more of their catalog since Rose stepped in for Brian Johnson. That continued Saturday night (Aug. 27) in Greensboro, North Carolina US. as the group performed the song ‘Live Wire’ for the first time since 1982. ‘Live Wire’ initially appeared on AC/DC’s second album, T.N.T., which featured Bon Scott on vocals.
The track made its return at the Greensboro Coliseum on the first night of the band’s rescheduled U.S. tour dates. The song, sandwiched mid-set between ‘If You Want Blood’ and ‘Sin City’, sounded fresh, with guitarist Angus Young duck walking his way across the stage.
While Axl Rose handled the vocals admirably, the performance was really more of a showcase for Young, who played for an extended period to the crowd late in the song before the band wrapped it up.
