The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features “Back in Black” being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of AC/DC’s “greatest hits,” opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.
