Bonfire is the quintessential tribute to the early music of AC/DC. With hard-rocking, spot-on sound, they are selling out shows and rocking audiences out of their seats all across the U.S., including at San Diego’s prestigious House of Blues.
And now they are bringing their off-the-hook extravaganza to Canada for a limited engagement tour.
Get ready for the perennial anthem It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll), Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, TNT, Let There Be Rock and Highway To Hell, along with the rest of the best of “Bon” Scott’s signature sound.
Their authentic look, sound, vocals and stage presence landed them a nomination for Best Tribute Band at the L.A. Music Awards in 2012.
Bonfire delivers such authentic sound that the lead singer was even shortlisted to replace AC/DC’s Brian Johnson last year, before the band settled on Guns ‘N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose.
Bonfire has performed several times on the Universal City Walk outside concert stage with Richard Blade (radio, TV, and film personality) as the announcer and MC.
Richard calls Bonfire, “An amazing tribute band!” Jerry Greenberg (President of Atlantic Records, 1974) worked with AC/DC during his years with Atlantic Records. Bonfire’s relationship with Greenberg began when he saw a performance, became a fan, and became involved with booking and promoting.
He says Bonfire is “as close as you can get to early AC/DC.”
Bonfire has also opened for global superstars , the Foo Fighters at Paladinos in Los Angeles, and Jane Wiedlin (Guitarist for the Go Go’s), a fan and friend of the band, calls Bonfire “not only the best AC/DC tribute band out there, they are my favourite tribute band, period! They will rock you till it hurts!”
The band rocks the Tidemark tonight (Jan. 25) and tickets are available at the box office anytime after noon or online at tickets.tidemarktheatre.com for $34.50 plus taxes and fees.
It is a licensed event, so ID will be required at the door.For more information about bonfire – a tribute to the music of AC/DC visit labonfire.com
