AC/DC co-founder and original frontman Dave Evans, who recently signed a UK exclusive deal with Rocksector Records to release his latest album 'Judgement Day' (April 26th), announces UK tour dates in May.
Evans, who formed the band along with brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, left AC/DC late in 1974 to be replaced by Bon Scott and went on to enjoy success in Australia with Rabbit, Thunder Down Under and also toured the United States and Europe with his band The Baddasses.
A UK version of The Baddasses has been formed for this tour, including Chris Appleton (guitar) and Martin McNee (drums) from Fury UK, and Marshall Gill (guitar) from New Model Army. The line-up is completed by Leon Gill (bass) from New Union. These shows will feature material from 'Judgement Day' plus some AC/DC classics from both Dave's era in the band and respectfully the Bon Scott era.
The main support band on the tour is Cumbrian rockers Falling Red who just released their excellent debut album 'Shake The Faith', also on Rocksector Records. Falling Red are hotly tipped with their album already making waves in early reviews/features in the press...
