After a massive year in 2017 Blood Sweat & Beers – The Concert, storms into 2018 with more shows to assault the senses and for audiences to sweat it out with their
rock n’ roll heroes.
Blood Sweat & Beers – The Concert has built their arsenal of fans around the country and continue their national tour in 2018 with brand partner Stones Original kicking off shows in March.
This concert is the real deal with current and former members of AC/DC (Mark Evans), The Angels (Jim Hilbun), Rose Tattoo (Angry Anderson/Dai Pritchard), Screaming Jets (Grant Walmsley) and Greg Aldridge on drums. They are the cream of rock n roll outfits and cover the four corners of Australian rock. They’ve performed to millions of people, had dozens of hit singles in the ARIA charts, sold millions of albums & been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
The Concert, is inspired by the book written by Murray Engleheart and covers the amazing Alberts’ years when Rose Tattoo somehow cranked everything up even higher and became the loudest, most threatening band to ever stalk the earth. Banned from the TV show Countdown, they often played in prisons, and occasionally had to fight, microphone stands in hand, to get out of the very venues they’d performed in. Then, of course, there were The Angels, Australia’s number-one live drawcard, who turned venues across the country into jam-packed paramilitary rallies. AC/DC need no introduction, their global juggernaut success is legendary. The Screaming Jets were one of the last bands to record for Alberts, who then courted The Jets to sign with them, during this unprecedented time in the Australian music scene.
This is an electric four-part show, blistering over 2.5 hours covering all the smash hits of these iconic bands. The concert opens with ‘Marseille’, The Angels with Jim Hilbun on vocals and bass, then, Angry hits the stage for an explosive Rose Tattoo set. A short break leads into Grant Walmsley on vocals/guitar with all the sing along hits of the Screaming Jets including ‘Better’ written by Grant and released in 1991. The show closes with Angry returning to the stage for a blistering set of AC/DC classics from the Bon Scott era with Mark Evans on bass.
“What an honour. Firstly writing Blood Sweat and Beers, the everything louder than everything else history of Oz rock. Then having that title adopted by a legendary bunch of blokes for a national tour that will see them blast out some of the greatest rock n roll ever made. Scripts don’t come no better than that.” – Murray Engleheart
