AC/DShe (pronounced A C - D She) is an all-female AC/DC tribute band. The band, hailing from San Francisco, covers only pre-1980 AC/DC songs (thus those written while Bon Scott was still alive).[1][2] The band was created by Nici Williams and Amy Ward in 1997. AC/DShe has toured throughout the US and in Europe and performed at the AC/DC tribute festival in Wales in 2004.[1][3] They began getting significant media coverage in November 2001, with a feature in Details Magazine and have had national and international press since, alongside other gender-specific tribute acts such as Lez Zeppelin[1] and Mandonna.[4] They were also featured in an article on Hustler magazine that covered all-female tribute bands.[5]
