RICK BREWSTER'S ANGELS update - will there be more shows?

 

 

“WE’RE BACK WITH A VENGEANCE!” – Rick Brewster

 

Post all the hype leading up to Dave Gleeson fronting Rick Brewster’s Angels, the time finally arrived for the two Oz-Rock juggernauts to share the stage. If packed houses at the Annandale and Norwood Hotels were any indication, this new outfit could be what carries The Angels’ to the next generation of fans.

 

 

With die-hard Angels fans frothing at the mouth in a mix of anticipation and curiosity as to what the Screaming Jets front-man would bring to the table, its was clear after only a few songs that they would not be disappointed. Gleeson’s powerhouse vocals and dynamic stage presence complimented the signature guitar sound that is unmistakably Brewster and The Angels adding a breath of fresh air into all the classics as well as the new songs from their upcoming EP.

 

 “It is like they are reborn! Definitely a step up. All the harmonies were in tune and the band played really tight. Dave fit like a glove”  - Alan Lancaster, Status Quo

 

Fans were treated to yet another surprise with the normally ice-cold Rick Brewster, unable to hide his delight with fans at both shows swearing blind that they saw the lead guitar virtuoso let slip some extremely rare on-stage smiles.

 

When asked about the vibe and energy of the show, Rick Brewster said it was reminiscent of the early years at the “Bondi Lifesaver in 1979” and went on to assure fans that shows in all Australian major cities “will happen in the not too distant future” and that they “just want to knock off a bit more writing and recording along the way”.

 

“We had one rehearsal the day before and it felt like we'd been playing together for years. The audience was as pumped as we were and it just got better and better the more they gave it back to us. I just can't wait to finish the first album with this band and play more shows!” - Rick Brewster

 

The crowd was awesome, the Annandale Hotel was packed front to back. I was loving every minute of it. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the show, you rocked.” - Dave Gleeson

 

"Squeezed into the wall to wall crowd with everyone as we waited to witness Aussie rock history, the vibe was electric! Pounding out hit after hit, not one person wasn't completely with the boys the whole way. Dave Gleeson's energy was contagious, words cant describe how awesome Rick and John were, Chris & Nick were a powerhouse in the engine room - this was the best thing I've ever seen, ever. More!” - Julie Reynolds Ch44 & 5AA Adelaide

 

 “Ive only just recovered, I lost my voice from singing to damn much. John Brewster running around like a 17 year old. Rick Brewster smiled more than once!  Dave Gleeson .. Dave f****in' Gleeson, how good is this guy !!!! He was sensational and made the tunes his own. The new ones were great. The world needs to see Gleeson and The Angels”

 - Michael Pursche "Sitting in a bar in Adelaide" - Adelaide Rock Show
