Hells Bells – The Academy, Dublin

Hells Bells – The World’s Greatest AC/DC Tribute Act

Midnight At The Academy

The Academy is preparing to be thunderstruck on Friday 16th April as it has been announced that Hells Bells are Dublin bound.

Formed in 1996 and hailing from Bristol, Hells Bells has evolved into perhaps the most well known and professional AC/DC tribute band in the United Kingdom. Tickets at €16.50 including booking fee are on sale now. The band are on stage at midnight.

If you are an AC/DC fan you must not miss this show.


Touring the length and breadth of Britain & Ireland for over 13 years playing the music of the legendary AC/DC, Hells Bells have built up a loyal following of fans and continue to do so wherever they play.

The band play material from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras, covering four decades of classic no’nonsense foot-stomping rock n’ roll!

From the blistering scream of the vocals, the duck’walks, the pounding rhythm & bass and the frenzied schoolboy antics to the booming cannons and pyrotechnics at the finale. The camaraderie of all five musicians is second to none and the excitement & passion shines through the music. All the elements are there for an awesome show of spectacle and power.

Hells Bells roster of gigs has expanded year on year and in 2008/2009 played to over 40,000 people at venues throughout Ireland, Britain, Slovakia and the Russian Federation. 2010 sees more expansion across Europe with tours being added in for Portugal and Bulgaria.

The band are regular performers at the Bulldog Bash, the largest motorbike music festival in Europe having worked their way up the bill since 2003. September 2009 saw them headline the Main Stage on the Thursday of the festival weekend with a crowd of 9000.

Another high profile festival was Oxegen ’08 at Punchestown racecourse, Dublin, a gig which was repeated in 2009. Hells Bells have also played a set in the middle of Coventry Speedway stadium during the World Championships and atop a 100ft stage overlooking Trafalgar Square for the Red Bull Railstorm Snowboard finals.
