HIGHWAY TO HELL – AND BACK
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.
