In what will probably become rock and metal’s biggest virtual concert this year, members of Guns n’ Roses, Alice in Chains, Anthrax, Lamb of God and more are teaming up for a livestream this Friday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of AC/DC’s classic Back in Black.

Consequence of Sound and guitar maker Gibson are teaming up to present Back in Black 40th Anniversary: A Virtual Celebration. Other bands set to perform Trivium, GWAR, Cage The Elephant and Airborne, whose sound is definitely influenced by AC/DC.

The free show is also giving away some awesome prizes, including a 1961 Gibson Les Paul Red Devil guitar in cherry red and Marshall cabinet loaded with speakers.

The virtual show starts Friday, July 24th at 5pm EST on Consequence of Sound’s YouTube and social media channels.
