February 2020 will mark 40 years since the iconic front man Bon Scott of AC/DC passed away. To honor his (and the band's) legacy, the Perth Festival in their native Australia, will transform a 10 Km stretch of "Highway" into a rolling concert. The usually very busy stretch of road, will be shut down to traffic for 10 hours to make way for flat bed trucks loaded up with tribute bands and even the Perth Symphony Orchestra performing the music of AC/DC. On the event organizers website they described it as:
“We’re reclaiming the iconic Canning Highway and turning it into the world’s longest stage for a day!
“Bring the family and join us as we celebrate our city and its connection to iconic Aussie band AC/DC. From the Raffles Hotel to the Old Fremantle Traffic Bridge, we’re closing the road to create a musical event that will have everyone singing along."
The festivities of the entire Perth Festival run from February 7th-March 1st. There will also be free outdoor performance venues dotted along the route, while “roving performances” and community choirs celebrate the timeless tunes of one of the best selling Rock bands of all time. More details HERE
Fans can only wonder if this might be the right time for the band to make some kind of announcement about their future plans (if any).....
