High Hopes: Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown – the last band to support AC/DC?
Blues prodigy and support to AC/DC, but still this Texan won’t believe the hype.
If you’re going to any of this month’s AC/DC shows, get there early for one of the rising stars of blues rock. Tyler Bryant, together with his band the Shakedown, possesses the chops of a young Stevie Ray Vaughan, the swagger of peak-era Black Crowes and he was hand-picked to support the rock legends on what is increasingly looking like their last stand.
“We’re just grateful we managed to do ten shows with Brian,” Bryant offers, when asked about what might be a bittersweet occasion. “It’ll be a different dynamic now with Axl, but we’re just honoured to be sharing a bill with such an incredible group.”
