The Angels Give Dave Gleeson Award for Services To The Band

What do you call it when you get an award from The Angels? We can’t call him Sir David Gleeson, maybe Saint David Gleeson would be appropriate?

Dave Gleeson has played his final show as lead singer of The Angels and his work has been honored by the band.

In a post on their socials, The Angels wrote, “Tonight The Angels were celebrating the good times they have shared with singer Dave Gleeson for the last twelve years. After his final performance with The Angels (Official) this evening at Gympie Muster, Gleeson and the band are parting company best of friends as he moves towards creating some other new highlights in his extensive career. Not wanting him to forget their gratitude the Brewster’s and Nick Norton presented Dave with a very special Service Recognition Award… straight to the pool room! Thanks Dave from all in the band as well as the fans who have absolutely enjoyed your performances!”.

Nick Norton, the drummer for the band since 2011, is the new lead singer. Tom Brewster, John Brewster’s son is the new drummer for the band. The Angels now has two sets of Brewster brothers with co-founders John and Rick Brewster and John’s two sons Tom and Sam.

With the new line-up in place, The Angels have announced a new tour to mark 50 years as a band.

At one point Jackson Browne commented how he “doesn’t think of himself as 75 and doesn’t think of his beard as grey” but that is what a lifetime of success will do to you. For many people in the room (including myself) who started the Jackson Browne journey with his first album in 1972, this show delivered a deep dive across the entire career.
