Legendary rockers The Angels are delving into their back catalogue for a special show at Belmont 16’s on Friday the 22nd May.
Titled The A – Z Tour, as the name suggests, the band have dug out 26 tracks, one for each letter of the alphabet, and will be playing them back-to-back. With a raft of hits to their name, this is a rare opportunity for music fans to hear some of the biggest hits, mixed with some classic rarities and of course, all the crowd favourites. The A – Z Tour showruns over two and a half hours. It’s The Angels from start to finish, in the finest form and rocking as hard as ever. In something a bit different, the band has recorded on analogue tape a new version of their classic Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again to launch the show, with a b-side of the ZZ Top hit La Grange to wrap-up the night. The recording will be released as a limited edition 7” 45 vinyl record, as well as a CD version, to coincide with the tour and available only at the gigs.
The band launched the A – Z Tour in February with a couple of packed house shows at The Bridge Hotel in Sydney. “The vibe in the room on the first two nights at The Bridge was electric,” says Rick Brewster. “It was full of hardcore fans who sang along with every word and the band was on fire! We can’t wait to take this show to the rest of the country.”
John Brewster says the launch shows saw the band play for two and a half hours. “The band played great, Gleeso was amazing having 28 songs in his head and getting it right,” he says. “The audience response was fantastic. The show was conceived because we want to play songs to our fans that we haven’t played for some time. A – Z seemed like a way to play 26 songs, plus encores, covering all bases, including some songs from our latest album Talk The Talk.”
