The AC/DC EXPERIENCE
They have rocked the UK — delivering the legendary sound, spirit and attitude of one of the world's greatest rock bands — and now THE AC/DC EXPERIENCE head to Birmingham.
Arguably Britain's best AC/DC tribute band.
The AC/DC Experience brilliantly nail the power and look of the stadium rock god's incendiary stage performance.
This widely-held view was backed up when rock legend, and ex-Whitesnake guitarist, Bernie Marsden who saw the band during their 2017 UK tour — which included dates in London, Scotland, the Midlands and the North.
Bernie, who wrote Whitesnake's classic anthem Here I Go Again, said: «I caught The AC/DC Experience on their tour in Oxford and the gig brought back memories of one of my greatest tour experiences with the Australian rockers in 1980.
»The AC/DC Experience boys captured the spirit of those great anthems I heard every night, and I believe the guitar player sweats as much as Angus!
«If you love AC/DC music a night out at one of their gigs will leave you smiling!»
The AC/DC Experience — Darran Short (vocals); Andy Holt (lead guitar); Steven Wolf (bass); James Stringfellow (guitar) and Dennis Duxbury (drums) — bring the electrifying musical skills and sound of the real thing.
Authentically covering all eras — expect explosive versions of the classics Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Thunderstruck, Hells Bells, You Shook Me All Night Long, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, T.N.T, Whole Lotta Rosie and many many more.
