Acca Dacca back in Condobolin

It’s a long way to Condobolin if you want to rock ‘n’ roll, but for the world’s premier ACDC cover band, Acca Dacca, it was well worth the journey.

Arriving from Coonabarabran late Saturday afternoon, the band showed the Condo crowd the true meaning of rock with an incredible three hour performance.

Beginning at 8:30 with ‘The Wright Stuff’, an Easy Beats cover show, the band reappeared half an hour later to bring down the house in what was an ACDC performance capable of bringing even Angus Young to his knees.

Playing an incredible set list ranging from hits from 1974’s ‘High Voltage’ to the recent ‘Black Ice’, the band got the 100+ crowd up and dancing with even the older members of the audience itching for a boogie.

Standout numbers included ‘Hells Bells’ and ‘Safe in New York City’.

Larry Attard, aka Bon Scott/Brian Johnson, said he thought the Condobolin crowd was incredible given the town’s small size.

“You never know what to expect with these sorts of shows,” he said.

“But we had a great time; you had the people who were here just for a good time and didn’t necessarily know all the songs, and you had the die-hards who sung along to every word.”

Acca Dacca’s next show will be in Brisbane before heading off to New Zealand for a round of performances.
