Wednesday April 6 at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre Classic Albums Live – a band of top Canadian musicians – recreates note for note, cut for cut one of the biggest albums from a Cape Breton favorite and one of the biggest bands ever.
Ranked the second highest selling album of all time, Back in Black is the sixth internationally released studio album by AC/DC. Released in 1980, it was the first AC/DC album recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott and is a dedication to him. The album contains some of their biggest hits, including “You Shook Me All Night Long”, and “Shake a Leg”. From the vengeful death knell of “Hell’s Bells” to the strutting finale of “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution,” the rhythms on this album are relentless. The Australian quintet’s follow-up to its 1979 breakthrough Highway to Hell still sounds thoroughly timeless, the essence of unrepentantly simple but savagely crafted hard rock.
Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and recreates them live on stage – note for note, cut for cut. Founded in 2003, Classic Albums Live has become a favorite of music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without gimmickry and impersonations.
