HEAR the sounds of the most popular rock band of all time when AC/DC UK perform at Motherwell Concert Hall this week.
AC/DC UK formed seven years ago and in their first ever visit to Scotland are ready to salute those about to rock on Friday (April 5).
Bassist Danny Curran said: “AC/DC are absolutely the best rock ’n’ roll band of all time and whatever else we might disagree on, that is the one thing that brings us together as a group, and it is a pleasure to be able to play their music to audiences all over Europe.
“AC/DC have been going for 40 years, Back in Black is likely the biggest selling album by a group ever, and if they were to announce a world tour tomorrow it would sell out in minutes.
“The likes of their association with the Iron Man franchise means they are gaining new fans all the time, and hopefully we are able to bring the songs to life for fans old and new.”
With a set list from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras AC/DC UK play all the familiar hits - or at least they would if there wasn’t so many.
Danny said: “My favourite track is Touch Too Much, and the likes of Whole Lotta Rosie and For Those About to Rock are always really popular, but we do all the big anthems - or at least we do any many as we can but it’s only a two hour show.”
AC/DC UK are finding huge success across Europe, particularly in the former Eastern Bloc as it catches up on the music that was denied to it during communism.
Danny said: “We were in Poland at the weekend and it was just like being at Monsters of Rock in the 1980s, I don’t mean that in a bad way, but it really was like going back in time.
“However it is great they are finally being able to enjoy such great music and were so up for it, it really took me back to my youth.
“We regularly play in Holland and get invited back there time and again so much be doing something they like, and are now expanding ever east and as well as Poland have dates booked in Hungary.”
Danny says he loves being in a tribute band, but is also glad it doesn’t have too hard a schedule that it take him away from his own music.
He said: “I really have the best of both worlds, I get to travel all over Europe playing the best rock ‘n’ roll music and having a great time, but I am also in other bands so am able to work on my own compositions.
“We have come from all over the UK for a common purpose and that’s to pay homage to AC/DC and I hope everyone in Motherwell enjoys the show.”
The show starts and tickets costing £15 are available by calling the box office on 01698 403120 or visit NLC Entertainment
AC/DC UK aren’t the only top tribute act in town as Definitely Mightbe bring the sounds of Oasis to the concert hall on Saturday (April 6) at 7.30pm, supported by Adored paying homage to the Stone Roses.
