The Angels (Racehorse)
4X4 ACROSS AUSTRALIA 2017 TOUR
Legendary Aussie rock band The Angels are gearing up for a tour guaranteed to smash the speakers and get venues rockin'. Announcing their 2017 4x4 Across Australia tour, the band will be digging through their back catalogue to pick some of their biggest hits for the special run of shows, which kick off in March. The 4x4 concept will see the band hand-picking four of their most iconic records, and playing, back-to-back, four hits from each record. Add to that an encore that will feature a swag of more classic tracks, and 4x4 will be a tour to go down in Aussie rock history.
For rhythm guitarist John Brewster, the 4x4 concept is about exploring more than four decades of great rock songs from the band's archives. "Each of our albums have a distinct sound and atmosphere that differs from the others," he says. "It's great to enter and embrace the feeling of these albums. We always like to have an angle that works for the fans and the band too."
Having recently wrapped up a massive sell-out run of shows on their Hardwired tour with MI-SEX, the band are now getting together to decide what songs should be part of the new concert series. They are taking into consideration audience feedback from previous shows, as well as fan suggestions. It is an opportunity to explore some of the songs that get requests but don't always make it onto set lists. "Our audiences leave the venues with big smiles, as do we," says John. "But there are always songs that people would have liked to hear, and also songs that we would like to play. The 4x4 tour gives us an opportunity to add some rarities."
