The first-ever Latin American AC/DC tribute festival will be held in Lima, Peru on June 25 at the Estadio Monumental.
A group of die-hard Peruvian fans are organizing this eight-hour party which will feature international tribute bands such as HIGHWAY TO HELL (U.K./USA; well known by IRON MAIDEN fans for opening the last MCBRAIN DAMAGE tour in 2006 and is one of the only AC/DC tributes to share the stage with Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams in 2007), plus AC/DSHE (California, USA), LIVE WIRE (New York, USA) as well as local hotshots CRAZY DIZZY (Peru).
The show will be produced with cutting-edge technology and will include special effects such as a five-meter Hell's Bells replica, an inflatable real-size Rosie, a dozen Angus clones as well as spectacular fireworks.
The AC/DC Tribute Fest Peru is the kick-off for a grass-root campaign to bring AC/DC to Lima, Peru on their next world tour.
Peru was not part of the Black Ice tour despite a huge local AC/DC fan base, which is desperate to see their idols live in action.
More than 10,000 fans are expected to pay their tribute to the greatest rock and roll band ever. During the festival, fans will be able to sign a giant Peruvian flag to salute the band and express their desire for an AC/DC concert in Peru. This flag will serve as tangible proof of Peruvian fan enthusiasm as well as a warm and passionate invitation to Angus & Co. to come and perform in Peru.
