From a press release:

It has been announced that tribute band Live Wire, billed as “the world’s ultimate AC/DC concert experience,” is coming to Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Friday, March 31, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $19 in advance or $24 the day of the show, are on sale now and available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

Live Wire offers the most complete and authentic reproduction of AC/DC’s sound and stage performance in the world, and their live show is the most accurate duplication of the original band that AC/DC fans worldwide have come to love.

Established in the year 2000 and hailing from the New York metro area, Live Wire has performed for audiences on five continents around the world, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The band has performed for audiences across the United States, Canada, Egypt, Spain, Turkey, Finland, Venezuela, Peru, Honduras, and many other regions.

Lead singer Chris Antos unleashes a furious and powerful vocal combination of both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, giving fans the best of both worlds at a Live Wire show. The trio of Bills – rhythm guitarist Bill Voccia, bass guitarist Bill Bowden, and drummer Billy Rauff – hold down the rhythm section, the driving force behind the AC/DC juggernaut of sheer rock ‘n’ roll power and wall of sound. Last but not least, the ultimate Angus Young clone in North America rounds out the band to deliver to you the most unforgettable and undeniably most authentic AC/DC experience on the planet.

Live Wire emulates the pure essence, power, and electricity of what an AC/DC show is all about and has proven to audiences time and time again that you can’t stop rock ‘n’ roll.

Live Wire performs the best of AC/DC, from the early roots of the band’s Australian club circuit days to the superstar worldwide status of their present hits. Complete with a full stage performance, just as if Angus Young and the boys were rocking before your very eyes, this is the closest you’re going get to the real thing.

There are well over 100 AC/DC tribute bands from around the world, and many of them claim to be “the ultimate AC/DC tribute band,” but only one band can actually back up this statement and prove it with the biggest hits: “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Highway to Hell,” “Back in Black,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” “T.N.T.,” “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “Thunderstruck,” “Hells Bells,” and more, along with other big fan favorites, such as “Shoot to Thrill,” “Have a Drink on Me,” “Sin City,” “Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be,” “Jailbreak,” and “Shot Down in Flames.” Their repertoire is continually growing, now over 80+ songs strong.

There’s no denying that everyone likes AC/DC in some way, and Live Wire is here to deliver the power, energy, image, and sound that you would expect at an actual AC/DC concert.
