The last few weeks has seen The Angels do a run of over half a dozen outdoor and arena shows alongside Billy Idol and old mates from way back Cheap Trick.
Including other artists such as Choir Boys, this unique tour ran across Australia and into New Zealand. Organised by A Day On The Green and Frontier Touring the special series of shows brought in tens of thousands of very enthusiastic fans ready to rock on and get into the epic radio hits from these great bands.
After completing the Australian leg of the current tour the whole party was very well catered for in New Zealand thanks to the production crew of promoter, and ex-Angels drummer, Brent Eccles as they played three big arena shows in Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch.
The Angels thoroughly enjoyed sharing their music with the audience at every one of these shows, although playing Horncastle Arena in New Zealand did hold a special place in their hearts with Christchurch being the sister city of the group’s hometown of Adelaide.
It was also great fun for the band to reunite with Cheap Trick having first toured together in Europe and the USA in 1980 – the pair of bands again playing together as The Angels moved around Australia with their national Beyond Salvation tour in 1990.
For The Angels, this is just the beginning of a huge year with Round 1 of their new 2015 national ‘A to Z’ Tour running across five states from 1st May through to 30th May.
Following on from these initial ‘A to Z’ shows The Angels are set for a lightning fast jump across to the northern hemisphere as they play two live gigs in France & England plus an enormous summer festival in Sweden.
Then, returning to Australia mid-year, the band will be getting into more up close pub gigs as they move into the next series of shows on Round 2 of their 2015 national ‘A to Z’ Tour.
