Tampa, Florida-based AC/DC tribute band HIGHWAY TO HELL has issued the following update:

"Last night (Saturday, December 8) in Sarasota FL, the Irish Rover bar celebrated its two-year anniversary with a huge street party with Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams of AC/DC playing some classic AC/DC tunes which included 'Back in Black', 'Shook Me All Night Long', 'Given the Dog a Bone', and cool version or 'Rock n Roll' by LED ZEPPELIN with Scotti Hill of the band SKID ROW on guitar and other local musicians!

"The highlight of the night was when Brian Johnson asked Martyn Jenkins (lead vocals) and Rod Vincent (rhythm guitar) of the well-known Tampa-based tribute band HIGHWAY TO HELL to join them for the encore of the song 'Highway to Hell', and Rod jammed rhythm guitar right next to Cliff Williams and sang backups, while Brian Johnson graciously let Martyn sing lead. They tore the roof off! Martyn blew the crowd away with his powerful vocals and Brian even commented that Martyn sounded like him 20 years ago!

"HIGHWAY TO HELL constantly tours around the state playing at top festivals such as Bike Week Daytona, St. Pete Times Forum, the massive Gasparilla Festival in Tampa and many top rooms. They are widely considered to be the most authentic tribute to AC/DC by many fans and critics."
