Over the past few years, Dave Evans (original frontman and founding member of AC/DC) has built up a large fan base across South America and when he tours, rock n roll mayhem ensues. One way to capture that chaos and energy is via a live album, a project which Argentine label Chrystal Records have recently completed.
The live album features thirteen tracks, recorded at various locations on Evans’ recent ‘Lightning & Thunder’ Tour of South America. Chrystal Records have recently issued a promo release of the track ‘Only The Good Die Young’ (see below) with another track ‘Rockin In The Parlour’ being previewed last week on the popular Mariskal Romero Show. ‘Rockin In The Parlour’ is the B-Side to AC/DC’s first single – 1974’s ‘Can I Sit Next To You Girl’, and this live version sounds fresh and very polished.
Evans prefaces his song ‘Only The Good Die Young’ by saying “I’ve been rockin’ a long time, I’ve been loving every minute of it” and you know he means every word. His attitude and positive vibe are always evident – and it’s most noticeable in his on-stage energy and vocal delivery.
He has a run of dates in Mexico throughout November and December, before returning to Argentina in February 2020 on the ‘Master Rock Tour 2020’. One date is already confirmed being February 15 in Buenos Aires. Following on from his August gig at L.A’s iconic Whisky A Go-Go, Evans has recently announced a return to U.S stages with a show locked in for 26 March, 2020 in Miami at the Open Stage Club
The new album ‘Dave Evans Live (Lightning & Thunder Tour)’ has a tentative release date of December 2019 and will be available via Crystal Records
