The legendary sound, spirit and attitude of the mighty AC/DC is alive and kicking… and set to be unleashed across the UK in 2017.
THE AC/DC EXPERIENCE – arguably Britain’s best AC/DC tribute band having rocked some of the biggest tribute festivals in the UK – are heading out on an eagerly-awaited nationwide tour.
Tickets for the 13-date UK Tour – which hits London, Manchester, Glasgow, Preston, Newcastle, Wolverhampton, Kendal, Dunfermline, Blackpool, Oxford, Bolton and Wigan – are on sale now from
THE AC/DC EXPERIENCE brilliantly nail the power and look of the stadium rock god’s incendiary stage performance, backed by a state-of-the-art lighting and projection show.
They have electrifying musical skills to match – each dazzling guitar solo, hard-rock riff and stunning vocal will have audiences convinced they’re watching the real thing.
Authentically covering all eras – expect explosive versions of the classics Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Thunderstruck, Hells Bells, You Shook Me All Night Long, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, T.N.T, Whole Lotta Rosie and many many more.
The AC/DC EXPERIENCE are: Darran Short (vocals); Andy Holt (lead guitar); Steven Wolf (bass); James Stringfellow (guitar) and Dennis Duxbury (drums).
The Lancashire-based band aim to delight rock fans young and old – many left devastated by reports AC/DC themselves may never tour again. The Anglo-Oz greats have lost four core members in the last two years, and founding lead guitarist Angus Young has raised question marks as to their future.
James said: “What has happened to AC/DC over the last two years has been nothing short of heart-breaking. We are all massive fans.
“As professional musicians and die-hard fans, it spurs us on to bring the true spirit of AC/DC to as many people as possible. We absolutely bring the full AC/DC package both in terms of the music and the performance, and the response from audiences across the country has been fantastic.
“Our vocalist Darran is rightly rated as among the best, able to sensationally deliver the signature vocal styles of both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, while Andy is a mesmerising guitarist with the kind of licks and tricks Angus would be proud of!
“In Wolfie, Den and myself we have an incendiary rhythm section that cannot be mistaken for anything other than the heartbeat of AC/DC.
“Fans of AC/DC are very discerning – they will not stand for cheap imitations – and we believe THE AC/DC EXPERIENCE is the closest you will get to the real thing. We aim to shake audiences ‘all night long’ and we cannot wait for this tour to begin.”
THE AC/DC EXPERIENCE 2017 Tour begins on Thursday February 16 at Islington O2 Academy. Tickets, priced from £13, can be bought via www.acdc-experience.co.uk or www.academymusicgroup.com/o2academyislington
