40 years from the release of Rose Tattoo’s legendary Rock N’ Roll Outlaw, the band will be heading out on an anniversary tour around Australia from September-November. The debut album was recorded at the famed rock ‘n’ roll Alberts studios, produced by the legendary team, Vanda & Young; released through Albert, Repertoire Records in late 1978. It was reviewed as “a dangerous, unpredictable, monster of a record whose power has hardly diminished an ounce in the decades since.” Spawning anthemic songs like ‘Nice Boys’ (Don’t Play Rock ‘n’ Roll), ‘Rock N’ Roll Outlaw,’ ‘One Of The Boys’ and ‘Bad Boy For Love,’ this album cemented the band’s foundation for the years to come.

An explosive set will cover the album in its entirety and will surely ignite the rock ‘n’ roll child within us. Bad Boy, Angry Anderson has recruited the best in the business to lead the assault, comprising legendary bass player extraordinaire, Mark Evans of AC/DC fame, iconic guitarist Bob Spencer of The Angels and Skyhooks, and Pete Well’s endorsed, “unbelievably talented maestro of rock mayhem,” Dai Pritchard on slide.
