CHOIRBOYS ROCK AC/DC
Just three years ago, Australia’s Pub Rock faves CHOIRBOYS embarked on a massive celebration of their old stable mates AC/DC. A tribute to Bon Scott, CHOIRBOYS performed Bon’s first album and his last album with AC/DC High Voltage and Highway To Hell cover to cover. The six shows were a massive success, selling out and rocking-out, proving everyone loves CHOIRBOYS and AC/DC.
A quick break and the Boys are Back! They resisted the urge for three years by pursuing individual projects and laying down some new tracks for their own forthcoming album, however the temptation to rock AC/DC just one more night is too furious an experience to pass up.
Paying homage to the legendary Aussie band and the 40th anniversary of Bon Scott joining AC/DC, the CHOIRBOYS will be again be performing High Voltage and Highway to Hell cover to cover and back to back.
Front man, Mark Gable said “We have a connection that goes way back – we even recorded our first album in the same studio as AC/DC did – it still blows my mind!” Bon Scott was one of the greatest front men rock has ever seen, and when he joined AC/DC it began a journey that is still legendary today. I love being in Choirboys, but I've always wanted to be in AC/DC, this is my chance to do both!"
AC/DC fans can re-live a collection of these two historic albums being performed by one of Australia's quintessential rock bands CHOIRBOYS - cover to cover. HIGH VOLTAGE (US Version) : It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll), Rock 'N' Roll Singer, The Jack , Live Wire , T.N.T. , Can I Sit Next To You Girl , Little Lover , She's Got Balls, High Voltage.
HIGHWAY TO HELL : Highway To Hell, Girls Got Rhythm, Walk All Over You, Touch Too Much, Beating Around The Bush, Shot Down In Flames, Get It Hot, If You Want Blood, Love Hungry Man, and Night Prowler.
“We’re not just performing songs but recreating the atmosphere around them during the 1970s,” Gable said. For forty years CHOIRBOYS have been an essential part of our Australian culture having penned one of this country's unofficial anthems "Run to Paradise". They epitomise the essence of the Australian pub culture scene and have secured theirplace in Australian music history. Through hits such as 'Run To Paradise', 'Boys Will Be Boys', 'Struggle Town' and 'Never Gonna Die', CHOIRBOYS and their music have found their way into our hearts, ears and minds.
