Sat 03 MarchThe Angels 'Book Tour'
RICK & JOHN BREWSTER present THE ANGELS ‘BOOK TOUR’ –
READING, MUSIC, QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
WITH SPECIAL GUEST RAYMOND HAWKINS AS MC
Music fans, rock historians and arts lovers alike are in for a treat this August as the legendary musicians behind The Angels – Rick and John Brewster – sit down for an intimate evening of reading, music, questions and answers on their official The Angels book tour. With the release of The Angels definitive story – the book that tells the warts and all story of one of the most influential Australian rock bands in history, penned by long-time associate Bob Yates – the two revered guitarists are heading out on the road to chat to fans in something a bit different from their normal rockin’ live shows.
The official The Angels book tour will be a rare chance for audiences to hear the real story, up-close-and-personal from Rick and John. “We’ve never told the whole story before,” says John Brewster. “The book release with Penguin, and the book tour – with special guest Raymond Hawkins – gives us the chance to do just that. We’ll talk to the audience, show them some of the riffs and tell them how some of the songs were conceived. There’ll be some road stories too.”
Raymond Hawkins was the lighting director who toured with The Angels back in the day and is well-placed to host the evening – not only asking his own questions and fielding audience queries, but also to share some of his early memories of the band on the road. “He was there with us when we toured the world and has great stories of those days,” says John. “The book tour will be really interesting.”
Audiences will have a chance to delve into the history of the band – the good and the bad – during the intimate evening discussions. From their humble beginnings in the Adelaide pub scene as the Moonshine Jug and String Band, to selling out international tours and releasing smash hit singles, it certainly hasn’t been a boring journey. The tour will be filled with rare insight into The Angels – don’t miss this intimate discussion, reading and of course, some music.
