The Angels 40th Anniversary Tour and Greatest Hits Album
Posted on 1 Apr 2014
Celebrating their 40th anniversary this year (1974-2014) The Angels are hitting the road for an extensive Australian tour and releasing two commemorative albums.
Liberation Music and Alberts are proud to announce the most extensive, career spanning Greatest Hits albums ever released.
The Angels – Volume 1 – 40 Greatest STUDIO Hits features every hit, some groundbreaking album tracks and a few rare gems to round out the package. It’s all Angels… all classics… ALL ROCK!
The Angels – Volume 2 – 40 Greatest LIVE Hits is a three-disc, 40-track collection that cherry picks the band’s expansive stretch of live recordings from their beginnings in the 1970s through to the current day – and everything in between.
Rhythm guitarist and Alberts writer John Brewster says the band can’t wait to get out on the road and celebrate with fans. He says the live shows won’t just be about the songs, but also about sharing memories from The Angels’ past. “These releases and the tour that goes with this anniversary of the formation of the band celebrate the proud history that we have in live performance,” he says. “That history includes each and every one who has played in the band over the years, everyone who has worked with the band, from the roadies to management, to record company representatives, booking agencies and most importantly the fans. We’ve loved it, it has always been the biggest thrill to play live and we intend to continue. The 40th anniversary tour gives us a great opportunity to celebrate with our fans the fantastic collection of songs that we’ve written over the years.”
The Angels – Volume 1 – 40 Greatest STUDIO Hits and The Angels – Volume 2 – 40 Greatest LIVE Hits are released on Friday 2 May 2014 through Liberation Music.
