"I have seen Dirty DC more times than I can count over more years than I can now remember. You guys ROCK!!!! Last night's gig was awesome at the Robin 2, Bilston. I went with my mate Dave who has also seen you many, many times before and we both agreed, you've got better and better over the years and last night was the best gig we've seen you play. Fantastic!! It was especially good as Dave brought along his 20 yr old son Alex for the first time. Alex had a permanent smile of intense pleasure on his face all night and couldn't stop talking about it afterwards. A new fan!! Well done and keep up the good work!!!"

MR KYPS - SOLD OUT

A fantastic reception from the sellout crowd out at Mr Kyps on Saturday made the torturous journey down worth it.

PARKWAY CINEMA, BARNSLEY

We really enjoyed returning to The Parkway Cinema after a long absence on Saturday. Playing on the stage in front of the big screen creates a great atmosphere which was helped by a fantastic crowd who all got down the front to rock with us, just how we like it! Great to see lots of long time northern followers as well as quite a few young first timers. Hope to see you all when we return to Barnsley later this year at The Birdwell Venue on Saturday 19th September.

-----------------------------------------

REVIEW FROM 'MANCHESTER ROCKS' OF GIG AT THE RITZ

And then the finale Dirty DC, right from the off the energy is immense, taking the lead is "Angus" complete with school uniform and satchel wielding his guitar like some deranged loon hell bent on causing mischief. Following is "Brian" complete with ubiquitous flat cap, Geordie accent and steadfast approach to doing the stalwarts justice.

I am impressed from the off at the passion they throw into the music, ramping up the crowd, offering banter in-between the songs and building on the vibes every step of the way. The stage set up, complete with cannons, is great. The back drop is emblazoned with their name and gets new additions as it goes along, Hells Bells brings a cut out of a bell, surprisingly, Whole Lotta Rosie a voluptuous blonde bombshell bedecked in trashy hosiery, who, incidentally, brings more whoops and whistles than the real life ladies who were on stage earlier...

SWINDON ROCKS

What a fantastic night at a packed out Level 3 for our first gig in Swindon for a long time. Great venue and crowd. Thanks to the venue promoter who sent us this review and Steve who sent us the message after:
"Flippin' excellent gig last night. Dirty/DC had an amazing sound, really tight rhythm section, Angus was on fire, and the singer got the crowd going, everyone went home smiling, a totally professional outfit, please come back soon." - Status Promotions

"Wow what can I say but a fantastic night. You guys always deliver the goods. Seen you at Mr Kyps a few times The Vic Swindon and now Level 3. You are the best tribute act out there and at times its hard not to believe it's AC DC up there on the stage. Down Payment Blues. Amazing. My voice has gone and a bit deaf but come back soon." - Steve

-----------------------------------------

DECEMBER '14

What a way to end the year, every gig in December sold out and over 500 at The Robin for the last gig of the year. We thank you all for your incridible support and look forward to seeing you all as we rock on into 2015 with the 'Ride On' Tour, which kicks off this Sat at The Diamond, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

-----------------------------------------

THE BRICKYARD, CARLISLE - SOLD OUT

Well we knew you lot were up for it when the gig sold out months ago, but blimey we weren't expecting that! You nearly took the roof off. Our biggest salute to the people of Carlisle and thanks for your incredible support. We really look forward to returning next year, Saturday 6th June.

-----------------------------------------

THE BOX ROCKS

A brilliant night at The Box on Saturday, a fantastic well-up-for-it crowd as always. People of Crewe, we salute you, you never let us down. Also a personal salute from me to the bloke who air-drummed solidly through the whole gig, never missed a beat (him that is, not me!)

-----------------------------------------

NOVEMBER '14

DORKING HALLS

A massive thank you to the people of Dorking, who turned out in fantastic numbers (nearly 500!) to rock with us on Saturday night. Keep checking the website as we hope to announce a return date for next year soon.
Thanks to Mike for this message:
"Just a quick email to say well done for last night! It was a great gig my mates and I had a superb time. At one point we thought it was the real (if not younger) Brian Johnson!!! Catch you next time you tour this way! Well done again - we salute you"

-----------------------------------------

OCTOBER '14

THE BROOK, SOUTHAMPTON (SOLD OUT IN ADVANCE)

What an amazing and emotional night. We dedicated the show to our dear friend and long time supporter of the band 'Little Ali' who sadly lost her long battle with illness recently. All her family were there and I'm sure she was rockin with us all in spirit. Thanks to everyone there for making it one of the best nights we can remember, we even had a marriage proposal on stage from Steve to Sarah who met at one of our gigs at The Brook 3 years ago. A really special night, all we can say is Southampton our biggest ever salute to you.

(Oh and she said yes by the way!!)

Thanks to AJ who sent us this email

"As an old school DC fan, I've seen a lot of tribute acts but nothing comes remotely close to Dirty DC! Simply put: the best thing to play AC/DC next to AC/DC. Bloody magic! Not only do they look great, act the same but you can tell from the bands smiles and antics onstage how much they love what they do. If you can't see the original band, see Dirty DC: they're THAT good!! As Jonna once said: 'the best fun you can have with your clothes on!' Keep it up!!!"
AJ

-----------------------------------------

KINGS HALL, STOKE

A great night on our return to Stoke on Saturday, thanks to a really enthusiastic crowd and hope to see some of you at our gig at The Box, Crewe on Sat 29th November.
Thanks to young Sam who sent us this message:
"The show last night can be described in 2 words: f***ing amazing! You guys always put on a great show and I can hardly hear a thing! You lads are always so down to earth and it was great of Steve to let me have a go on his guitar. You guys will always be the best tribute to AC/DC there is!"

-----------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------

THE ROBIN

Another fantastic night at The Robin on Saturday, always a great crowd. We really do appreciate the support. Special thanks to Tara Hill for great vocals on 'You shook me all night long' and thanks to Steve who sent us this message:

"Hi. Just wanted to say well done for the show you put on at the Robin last night. I went with my Dad who's hard to please and has been in some good bands himself. I asked him at the end of the night what he thought, "Bloody awesome" he said. I have to agree I've seen AC/ DC live and i have always avoided tribute bands thinking they wouldn't do the real band justice. Well you've blown that out of the water.
Thanks for a great night i am already looking for your next gig at the Robin and i will be there!!!"

-----------------------------------------

ASSEMBLY HALL, TUNBRIDGE WELLS

A fantastically enthusiastic crowd helped us keep up the energy on a very warm night on Saturday. Thanks to Martin for great bagpipes on long way to the top. Also thanks to Mike who sent us this message:

"Well I've seen most of the major tribute bands in the UK, but none come close to you guys. Just an amazing reproduction of the real thing (whom I've seen twice) both visually and aurally. PLEASE keep doin it and PLEASE come again. In the meantime I am gonna try and catch up with you somewhere else if I can. Thanks for a wonderful evening."

Sorry to anyone who didn't get a ticket, but we will be announcing a return for later this year very soon so keep checking the website and facebook.

Thanks to Bob who sent us this message:

"Felt compelled to write after another barn-storming performance in Carlisle on Saturday night - absolutely fantastic night and great delivery and choice of songs (slightly different from last Septembers gig which shows how versatile you are). Me and my mates are in our late 40's and early 50's so it took us back to when we first saw AC/DC on the For Those About To Rock tour in 1983. Come back to Carlisle ASAP - we would gladly pay to watch you EVERY Saturday night!"
