Livewire AC/DC vs Federal Charm

’Hail! Hail to the good times
‘cos rock has got the right of way
For those about to rock,
We salute you’

Live/Wire and Federal Charm join forces to deliver a night of TNT, high voltage, downright dirty deeds…

We roll tonight to the guitar bite of the familiar from Live/Wire and their blistering AC/DC show, complete with cannons, a Bon Scott, a Brian Johnson, a wall of Marshalls and a duck-walking Angus.

…and of soon-to-be familiar, with Planet Rock favourites, Federal Charm, bringing a new fresh edge to the ‘For Those About To Rock’ line-up.

For those who know, Live/Wire’s drop you slap-bang in the middle of an AC/DC show with hit after hit: Back in Black, A Whole Lotta Rosie, Highway To Hell… the songs go on and on and keep a-coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo.

… and for those who don’t, Federal Charm are full of twin-guitar twists and stop-start rhythms. Their original take and fresh direction on the classic rock curve has turned many. They draw from a deep well – from the Allman Brothers to Led Zeppelin, stopping off on the way to pay a call in at Thin Lizzy, the revamp-blues of The Black Keys and the contemporary bluster of Rival Sons. But hey! Don’t just take our word for it…

“Swaggering riffs, sleazy slide flourishes and cinder raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning” - Classic Rock

“Huge in sound and in talent. Nothing short of ear-candy” - Fireworks

“Federal Charm are one of the most animated, loud, raucous bands on the UK circuit today”
- Blues Matters

Live/Wire together with Federal Charm deliver the old and bring on the new for a night of great riffs; ace musicianship; phenomenal vocals. A big sound that cannot be restrained. Heads will roll and rock tonight…

'Pick up your balls and load up your cannon
For a twenty one gun salute
For those about to rock
We salute you’

From PRS Official awards, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados and TV appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ among others) to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 21st year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed lineup yet.

Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest etc) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned this, their third co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire, into their usual exhausting year-round schedule. The Boys Are Back in town!
