Emerging from lockdown and ready to rock, The Angels have put something special together for their fans, and it doesn’t get any bigger or better than this – “The Greatest Show On Earth”, packed full of hits – and it is expanding to take in Adelaide and the East Coast of Australia!  See dates below.

Kicking off in Adelaide, the birthplace of the band, The Angels are thrilled to confirm that they are also playing shows in Melbourne, New South Wales and Queensland. We’re talking wall-to-wall hits – Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again, No Secrets, Take A Long Line, Shadow Boxer, Marseilles, Comin’ Down, After The Rain, Face The Day, Fashion and Fame, Let The Night Roll On, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, Mr Damage … and more.

As the book The 100 Best Australian Albums points out, “The Angels can lay claim to being Australia’s longest-lasting band.” They have been on the road consistently since 1974 and it took a global pandemic to slow them down.  Now the band is itching to get back on stage and they’re not mucking around!

This is the start of a huge year for The Angels as they celebrate some major anniversaries in 2021. It’s 45 years since the release of their debut single ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, a song that’s now an indelible part of the Australian culture.

This tour also marks the 10th anniversary of Dave Gleeson joining the band, a position he treats with great reverence. “I’m definitely respectful of the fact that I’m not the creator of the Angels’ sound,” Dave says. “And I’m mindful of bringing that energy that Doc brought to the band. But it’s a real treat for me to be up there blasting out songs that I’ve loved since I was a kid.”

The band will also play the re-scheduled Bluesfest in Byron Bay, 1st – 4th October 2021, an event they are supremely excited about given previous cancellations.

It’s time to get back out there and do what we love doing,” says John Brewster. “It’s time to rock.”

Let The Night Roll On!
This is it folks, over the top!

Australia has form when it comes to producing great rock music.

ACDC, Cold Chisel, The Divinyls, Rose Tattoo, Beasts of Bourbon, The Scientists, Bored, The Mark of Cain, Magic Dirt, Silverchair, Jet, Birds of Tokyo, Wolfmother and Airbourne are just a few of the bands who have led and continue to lead the way, locally and internationally today.

Adelaide bred three-piece outfit Tracer are hoping to earn their spot on that list soon.

Two EPs and years spent honing their live shows saw them picked up by the Mascot Label Group and introduced to the European rock scene.  Their 2011 debut LP, Spaces In Between gave yet more hints about the band’s potential and was quickly followed by three successful European tours and the Best New Band award at the 2012 Classic Rock Awards.

With their new album El Pistolero due to be released here on July 5th, the hard rocking outfit have well and truly started to fulfil their potential.  Produced by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Silverchair, Cold Chisel, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden) El Pistolero is on track to make Tracer the rock band that everyone is talking about  in 2013.

Mexico is the spiritual home of El Pistolero.  Taking inspiration from the cinematic stylings of Robert Rodriguez’s classic film Desperado, the Tex Mex vibe works well with the classic rock, stoner and grunge sounds on the album.  From atmospheric strings, heavy and sweaty rock, stomping drums and driving riffs, El Pistolero takes aim with gleeful macho abandon delivered with high calibre skill.

Great reviews and strong airplay support has further raised the band’s profile in Europe, but now the trio are looking forward to coming home.

Tracer return to celebrate the Australian release of El Pistolero and will be joining another of the great Australian rock bands The Angels, on the road for a number of shows in July and August.
