In search of international AC/DC tribute bands, the organizing team for 2023 found what they were looking for for the first time in the neighboring Netherlands: ACinDC has been formed from the rhythm section of the former band Action in DC, which is certainly a household name to some hardcore fans.
Those who were at the International Fan Meeting in 2017 can certainly remember Jon Blandvord, the singer of AC/DC UK at that time, who already looks quite similar to Bon Scott and whose voice is also very close to the original: You will meet him again at the mic in ACinDC.
Drummer Lambert van den Munckhof, bassist Nick McGrath and rhythm guitarist Laurent Schijns will show the fans how an AC/DC tribute band should sound. A "young Angus Young", whose real name is Erwin Wuite, will race across the stage like a madman shaking his head in the Celle CD barracks.
With a lot of experience on international stages under their belt - such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, England and Australia... and festivals from Zwarte Cross, Bospop to Graspop - ACinDC will take you on a unique sound journey through the AC/DC repertoire on Fan Meeting Friday, which will be quite something!
Info about the band:
It's already been more than four years since HOLE FULL OF LOVE shook the foundations of the Music Hall at the International AC/DC
Fan Meeting j2018 with a thunderstorm of sound from the Bon Scott era.
We thought "all good things come in threes" and thus invited them again to play at the premiere of our fan meeting at the new location in Celle.
"A Tribute to 70's AC/DC" describes exactly what the band is all about: with their ultra-straight stage show, consistently committed to the rock'n'roll beginnings of the early AC/DC years, the band around frontman Dario always creates bewilderment. Mostly to be found in the Rhine-Main area next to Frankfurt, HOLE FULL OF LOVE are also on tour nationwide - among others, they have already played as support for Foreigner and Rose Tattoo. For the International AC/DC Fan Meeting the stage is definitely ready for "HOLE FULL OF LOVE" once more!
HOLE FULL OF LOVE will be the first band to play on Fantreffen Saturday with a hammer song selection from the Bon Scott era! "Safety note": Please leave some stamina for the second Saturday band, because they also promise the full board of concentrated AC/DC power :-)
Info about the band:
Do you still remember? In 2019, for the very first time, we had a band from the USA to hit the stage at the International AC/DC Fan
Meeting (THUNDHERSTRUCK from California). This time , we once more looked across the big pond in the cause of our"band casting
2023". We discovered LIVE WIRE from the USA: The combo with lead singer Francis Crouse, who visually could undoubtedly be a close
relative of Brian Johnson, promises an authentic AC/DC experience both in sound and show.
LIVE WIRE was founded in 2000 in the New York metropolitan area and is dedicated to an authentic reproduction of AC/DC's stage
performance. Since then, they have performed on five continents and numerous countries by now - in addition to the USA, they have
also performed in Canada, Egypt, Spain, Turkey, Finland, Venezuela, Peru, Honduras and many other regions. It's about time to finally
see them in Celle, Germany!
Regulars of previous AC/DC fan meetings will certainly remember experiencing lead singer Francis Crouse on stage in 2018 with his
powerful voice - and the 2019 fan meeting annual motif famously adorned his likeness from that performance.
Rhythm guitarist Bill Voccia, bass guitarist Joe Whalen and drummer Billy Rauff combine as a driving force from the background to
provide a wall of sound of pure rock 'n' roll power.
Last but not least, Mike Hughes on lead guitar completes the AC/DC sound experience - a rawessence, power and electricity of what an
AC/DC show is all about: high voltage rock'n'roll at its finest.
