The Honey Sliders will be recreating The Beatles’ landmark classic album Abbey Road live on stage in its entirety. Coupled with special guests, some of Australia’s best musicians and a history of creating respectful and outstanding music this promises to be a very special night. The Honey Sliders, presented by Danny Widdicombe, plus special guests perform Abbey Road at The Triffid in Brisbane on Friday, August 4 and at The Sound Lounge in Currumbin on Sunday, August 6.

The Honey Sliders have built a reputation for their stunning recreations of some of their all-time favourite albums. Starting with Hendrix’s Axis: Bold as Love in 2013, they went on to wow the audience with a live, rambunctious rendition of Neil Young’s On the Beach the following year. In 2015 they went on to break box office records with the sold out extravaganza of The Band’s classic farewell concert The Last Waltz. The Honey Sliders’ reputation for staging respectful recreations of classic albums has been cemented with special guests like Bernard Fanning, Troy Cassar-Daley, Jeff Lang and Ian Haug. 2016 saw
the band play sell-out shows performing The Rolling Stones’ cult album Sticky Fingers with Australian rock legend Tim Rogers on lead vocals.Abbey Road was the last recording the Beatles made and it has become their most enduring album. It is famed for being one of the most influential and revered albums of all time. The album cover is universally acknowledged and imitated daily on the very same crossing on Abbey Road, adjacent to the
famous studios where The Beatles recorded the lion’s share of their extensive catalogue.Starting with the swamp blues intrigue of John Lennon’s Come Together and ending with Paul’s epitaph of wisdom, The End. Abbey Road is a powerful mix of beautiful songs including, Something, the heartfelt soul balladry Oh Darling, pop wizardry Octopus’s Garden and deep hypnotic blues I Want You / She’s So
Heavy.

The Honey Sliders are led by Danny Widdicombe who is a member of the Three x ARIA Award nominated band The Wilson Pickers and has played lead guitar for the likes of Bernard Fanning, Tim Rogers and many more. Danny is renowned for his formidable guitar playing and songwriting. On keys, bass, guitar and almost anything else he turns his hands to, Dan Mansfield is the musician’s musician and has played all over Australia as a part of the cult band The Gin Club and with Australia’s premiere rock n roll band You Am I.
