Bruce Springsteen Performs AC/DC In Perth

by Paul Cashmere on February 9, 2014

in Live,News

Bruce Springsteen channelled the hometown sounds of Perth last night when he opened his third Australian show with AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’.

AC/DC’s Bon Scott was a Fremantle boy and is buried in the town just south of Perth.

Springsteen set a pattern of performing the songs of hometown legends when he opened his 2013 Australian tour in Brisbane with a cover of The Saints ‘Just Like Fire Would’. He went on to record the Saints song a week later in Sydney. That Sydney recording is the version featured on his new album ‘High Hopes’.

Bruce Springsteen once opened a London show with The Clash’s ‘London Calling’.
