A Great Rock’n'Roll Show With Cheap Trick & Billy Idol

April 10th, 2015

The Angels - Christchurch - New Zealand - 4th April - 2015The 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 & Cheap Trick - Robin Zander - Tom Petersson & John Brewster - Hunter Valley - 28th March - 2015The 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.

The Angels & Cheap Trick - Rick Nielsen & Rick Brewster - Hunter Valley - 28th March - 2015Following 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.

Rock’n'Roll Is Definitely Alive & Well

‘A to Z’ Round 1 Now Announced – Single Sells At Shows

February 9th, 2015

The Angels - New Commemorative Single - 2015The Angels are pleased to announce that their new commemorative single will be available at live shows on 7″ vinyl as well as CD when Round 1 of the group’s new ‘A to Z’ Tour gets underway in May 2015.

Recorded in the traditional manner on an analogue tape this release brings back the sound that led the band to fame as their career burst out of the 1970′s onto the national stage.

The tour will see a special set of 26 songs to cater for every letter of the alphabet as the band provide a full evening of rock at each and every venue along the way.

Taking care of the start of the alphabet is the commemorative re-recording of Am I Ever Gonna’ See Your Face Again with the band’s front man Dave Gleeson providing the motivation to record some ZZ Top music as a special B-Side to complete the alphabet. Built on traditional southern boogie rhythms this unique version of La Grange features John Brewster pushing out a series of manic, ramped up solos using his trademark method of playing R’n'B blues harp.

The last 12 months have been huge for The Angels, first with the release of their studio album of all new material TALK THE TALK, and then their sell-out 40th Anniversary Tour, which took them to all corners of Australia. Now 2015 will see the boys embark on Round 1 of their ‘A to Z’ Tour in May, then head overseas in June to London & Sweden followed when they return back home by Round 2 of the ‘A to Z’ Tour from July to September.

Tickets for Round 1 of the ‘A to Z’ Tour are now on sale for the following venues.
