Thousands expected for ACDC concert on Canning Hwy

The Rumour File alerted us back in June that an application had been made to close Canning Highway for a Bon Scott tribute in 2020, on Sunday that rumour was confirmed by the State Government that the AC/DC tribute concert would close the Perth Festival.

Highway to Hell will be the world’s longest stage at a family friendly event that will stretch 10km along the Canning Highway from Fremantle.

“I think we’re going to get thousands and thousands of people; families coming along and joining in on the spirit of what will be a very, very unique and special event,” David Templeman, the Minister for Culture and the Arts, told 6PR Breakfast.
