AC/DC performed the TNT classic ‘Live Wire’ for the first time since October 1982 in North Carolina over the weekend.

The Axl Rose fronted AC/DC have resumed the final dates of their postponed North American tour following the departure of Brian Johnson.

‘Live Wire’ was slipped in as an additional song in the second half of the show.

‘Live Wire’ was written by Angus Young, Bon Scott and Malcolm Young for the second AC/DC album ‘TNT’ released in 1975.
