Just Announced: The Angels’ Greatest Hits, Live In Concert “The Greatest Show On Earth”, Melbourne June 2021!

Published

on

Emerging from lockdown and ready to rock, The Angels have put something special together for their fans, and it doesn’t get any bigger or better than this – an unbelievable greatest hits show, “The Greatest Show On Earth” presented by Mr Damage.

Kicking off in Melbourne initially, with two shows at The Palms at Crown on June 18 and 19, the band is thrilled to confirm a setlist of wall-to-wall hits including ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, ‘No Secrets’, ‘Take A Long Line’, ‘Shadow Boxer’, ‘Marseilles’, ‘Comin’ Down’, ‘After The Rain’, ‘Face The Day’, ‘Fashion and Fame’, ‘Let The Night Roll On’, ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, ‘Mr Damage’ and many more.

 As the book The 100 Best Australian Albums points out, “The Angels can lay claim to being Australia’s longest-lasting band.” They have been on the road consistently since 1974 and it took a global pandemic to slow them down.  Now the band is itching to get back on stage and they’re not mucking around!

This is the start of a huge year for The Angels as they celebrate some major anniversaries in 2021. It’s 45 years since the release of their debut single ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, a song that’s now an indelible part of the Australian culture.

This tour also marks the 10th anniversary of Dave Gleeson joining the band, a position he treats with great reverence. “I’m definitely respectful of the fact that I’m not the creator of the Angels’ sound,” Dave says. “And I’m mindful of bringing that energy that Doc brought to the band. But it’s a real treat for me to be up there blasting out songs that I’ve loved since I was a kid.”

Acknowledging their disappointment at the cancellation of Bluesfest recently, Rick Brewster notes, “We were devastated. We all know it’s been a very tough 12 months for the music industry and every music fan. Our relationship with the audience means everything to us and it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to play more shows and reconnect again”.It’s time to get back out there and do what we love doing,” adds John Brewster. “It’s time to rock.”

 Let The Night Roll On!

Scandinavia heads down under as Silverback Touring bring you two of Sweden’s finest Hard Rock exports H.E.A.T and CRAZY LIXX. This will be the first Australian Tour for both bands and the action takes place in the rescheduled dates of September 2022.

Over the last several years H.E.A.T have established themselves as one of the leading bands in the melodic rock scene, both in their homeland Sweden and internationally. They have toured and performed front of thousands and thousands of fans around the world.

In April 2008, their self-titled debut album was released and became a massive vitamin injection for the genre and instantly received accolades from both fans and critics worldwide. The release was followed up by immense touring and H.E.A.T played with bands such as Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy and on big festivals like Sweden Rock.

Since that time H.E.A.T have released a further 5 studio albums that latest being this years H.E.A.T II and have established themselves as a major force in the hard rock world.

“What can you say about H.E.A.T? If you don’t like these energetic Swedes you must be dead inside, as this year they’ve shown the UK crowd how to be the most complete band on the planet” – Classic Rock Magazine.

Joining H.E.A.T are fellow Swedes CRAZY LIXX! CRAZY LIXX carry the torch of Rock ‘n’ Roll with pride with their brand of Hard Rock and Hair Metal. Since their album debut in 2007, the band has been enthralling crowds with their unique brand of 80’s Hard Rock and stellar live show.

Their latest album Forever Wild is another sleaze metal gem that harkens back to the best of ‘80s rock, while also keeping a foot planted in the 21st century. Forever Wild further cements CRAZY LIXX as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led ‘80s hard rock revival.

Rendering the pure nostalgia of 80’s Arena Hard Rock and ‘The New Wave of Swedish Sleaze’ CRAZY LIXX come packed with impressive guitar solos, memorable hooks, catchy choruses, big drums and genre defining riffs.

Thursday 8 Sept – Sydney, Manning Bar
