AC/DC tribute act HIGHWAY TO HELL has announced that it will be joining IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain's MCBRAIN DAMAGE at the Freebird Café in Jacksonville on Friday, December 16, Boomerz in Tampa on Saturday, December 17, and the final concert at the Hard Rock Legends Theater in Hollywood, Florida on December 18.

Martyn Jenkins, HIGHWAY TO HELL's frontman, said, "This is a huge honor top be opening up for Nicko McBrain, and we look forward to bringing our high-energy AC/DC show to the lineup and making new fans. A big thanks to Nicko and also Rich Rubin with Maximum Bands."

HIGHWAY TO HELL's show is a re-creation of the raw power and energy of an AC/DC concert. The setlist is a one to two hour rock show that includes all the hits songs and classics spanning 30 years of material. Since its inception, the band has put together a successful track record of performances.

Rodney Vincent originally formed HIGHWAY TO HELL in 2004 after a successful six-year tour with HIGH VOLTAGE, a U.K. AC/DC tribute band. Another level of authenticity was added to the show with the addition of their newest member, Martyn Jenkins, from Wales, England. Martyn was front man for the QUEEN tribute band NIGHT AT THE OPERA, who opened for members of QUEEN in Europe. Martyn successfully re-creates the vocal intensity of both Brian Johnson and Bon Scott.

The band has been performing in rock venues across Florida, and always receives requests to return for additional performances.
