HIGH­WAY TO HELL – AND BACK

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE & LOUD -

Even An­gus Young says “if you can’t see AC/DC, see Acca Dacca”. The ul­ti­mate trib­ute comes to the Gold Coast this week­end, and it’s a full­blown show with canons, bells and bag­pipes.

With pre­ci­sion, Acca Dacca repli­cate the hard rock of AC/DC note for note. Front­man Larry At­tard has pas­sion­ate vo­cals so good that you would mis­take him for Bon Scott him­self.

Switch­ing to Brian John­son isn’t a prob­lem for this sea­soned per­former as he belts out clas­sics from the Back in Black al­bum to Black Ice.

The Acca Dacca show is per­formed with a mega 25,000 watts of sound and a huge light­ing rig plus spe­cial ef­fects in a non-stop two-hour ex­pe­ri­ence.

Larry says all the band mem­bers are avid AC/DC fans.

“We would like to thank the band from the bot­tom of our hearts for the three decades of mu­sic it has brought to the world of rock,” he says.

“We try to repli­cate with the ut­most re­spect the mu­sic and stage show writ­ten and per­formed by Bon Scott, An­gus Young, Mal­colm Young, Cliff Wil­liams, Phil Rudd and Brian John­son and thank them humbly and gra­ciously.”

With 13 years of tour­ing un­der its belt, Larry says this loud and proud show is AC/DC rein­car­nated. “This is not a trib­ute, not a cover band, this is a full-blown show with can­nons, bells, bag­pipes, Bon and Brian,” Larry says.

“What will you take home from a night with Acca Dacca? Just the feel­ing, no the mem­ory, that you’ve just wit­nessed AC/DC — at present and the AC/DC of the Bon Scott era.”

Pun­ters are taken on a one way ride on the High­way To Hell.

The band were formed in Brisbane in 2000 by Larry, and who has the un­canny abil­ity to pull off both Bon and Brian’s songs. He is joined by Jesse At­tard as An­gus, Dave Tay­lor as Mal­colm, Shane Fleury as Cliff and The Don as Phil Rudd.
