Airbourne a metal act? They're an AC/DC clone band. Looking forward to some of the other acts eg. Dragonette.

Thanks for that input.
Funny though... I googled the band and found this photo on their website.


Here's one of AC/DC:


They're not trying to clone the image. But the sound? Will have to see.

Thanks for comments from the peanut gallery but airbourne is faster, tighter with a fresh look on AC/DC considering they come from the same town and country it's obvious they wanna be the next beer drinking 30+ yr band.

Yeah AC/DC I wish , if only they were playing Hamilton would get to pack an outdoor venue comparable to an authentic Rock concert from the 8o's
