THE ANGELS – NEW TOUR – ’50 YEARS IN THE MAKING’
Fri 6 Oct @ 7:00 pm
The Angels formed in Adelaide in 1974. As the book The 100 Best Australian Albums points out, “The Angels can lay claim to being Australia’s longest-lasting band.”
This is it, folks – the first Angels tour with Nick Norton out front.
“As we close in on our 50th anniversary, this is an exciting new chapter in the story of The Angels,” guitarist and co-founder John Brewster says. “We can’t wait to hit the road with Nick.”
“What I’ve learned over the past 50 years is that this band is bigger than any one person,” Rick adds. “The power of The Angels is in the guitar sound and the songs.”
Indeed, it’s a catalogue of classics ingrained in the hearts of every Australian rock fan, including Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again, Take A Long Line, No Secrets, Shadow Boxer, Marseilles, I Ain’t The One, Comin’ Down, Mr Damage, After The Rain, Night Attack, Dogs Are Talking and We Gotta Get Out Of This Place. No wonder the famous American critic David Fricke called The Angels “a guaranteed great time anywhere”.
With 13 studio albums, eight Top 10 albums and 17 Top 40 singles, The Angels have a storied history. But it’s the ongoing relationship with the audience, built via thousands of gigs, that means everything to the band. An exhilarating exchange of energy.
“This band exists because of the fans,” John says. “We do what we do because we love it and we’re very fortunate that a lot of other people love it, too.”
And the band are also pleased to announce that replacing Nick on drums will be John’s son Tom Brewster, meaning the band now has two sets of Brewster Brothers – John and Rick on guitar, and Sam (who joined in 2013) on bass with his brother Tom on drums.
“That means a lot to us,” John says. “We’ve always seen The Angels as a family. Every person who’s played with the band – indeed, everyone who’s seen the band over the years – is part of The Angels family.”
