When the word “symphony” is used to describe a musical group, the term conjures visions of woodwinds and violins and sounds of Mozart and Wagner. The Black Jacket Symphony has redefined the term and taken it to another dimension. The group of seasoned musicians takes on iconic albums and performs them with a precision matched only by the original recordings. Over the years, the Black Jacket Symphony has performed albums from bands ranging from Led Zeppelin to Pink Floyd.
For this visit to LoDa, the Black Jacket Symphony will perform AC/DC’s “Back in Black” in its entirety. In addition to the title track, the Aussie metal band also filled the album with such hits as “Shoot to Thrill,” “You Shook Me All Night Long” and “Hells Bells.” After they perform “Back in Black,” the orchestra will take a short intermission before treating the crowd to a best-of set featuring other AC/DC hits.
