Original AC/DC frontman Dave Evans is celebrating his old band’s 40th Anniversary in pretty fitting style this evening – playing with a leading AC/DC cover band.
Evans will join Long Way To The Top in a special guest spot at Mount Prichard venue ‘Mounties’ in Sydney’s south-west tonight.
Billed as “the ultimate tribute to AC/DC”, Long Way To The Top’s show features music from both of AC/DC’s eras (Bon Scott and Brian Johnson) with two different frontmen to play the part.
Promoters also describe the show’s lighting, sound and staging production as being only second to the band themselves, with a set-up that replicates an AC/DC stage from one of the band’s special BBC shows in the early 1990s.
Evans told the Liverpool Leader this week that he’s still got plenty of fire in the belly when it comes to playing live.
“I smash it on stage, I will knock everyone’s block off,” Evans said. “If anyone wants to rock as hard as me, good luck to them.”
He’s also full of praise for the Long Way To The Top show and is looking forward to sharing the stage with them.
“Long Way to the Top isn’t just another band in the uniform, they do the real deal show,” he said. “The boys have a lot of the things in their show that made AC/DC famous.”
Long Way To The Top featuring Dave Evans is on at Mounties, 101 Meadows Rd, Mount Prichard tonight from 8pm. Tickets are $25 for members and $30 for guests. More information on the show can be found here.
