We are pleased to welcome back to the Waterfront, one of Europe's best ever Aerosmith tribute act: the Toxic Twins.
The wide repertoire performed by the Toxic Twins is likely to satisfy even the most demanding Aerosmith fan.
You’ll hear, among the others, classics like ‘Walk This Way’, ‘Sweet Emotion’, ‘Dream On’, ‘Mama Kin’, 'Toys in the Attic’ as well as hits like “Dude Looks Like A Lady’, ‘Rag Doll’, ‘Angel’, ‘Love In An Elevator”, ‘I Don't Want To Miss A Thing’, ‘Pink’, and plenty more.
The Toxic Twins gigs history includes many of the major UK venues such as Nottingham Rock City, JB’s Dudley, the Norwich Waterfront, Bristol Fleece, Bradford Rio, Glasgow Strawberry Fields, Belfast Empire and Ulster Hall, etc etc., as well as gigs in Ireland, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Austria and Germany to name a few countries Toxic twins have toured .
Toxic Twins formed during summer 2000, when Frank J. and Terry, who had been already playing in a band together, met Aaron at a gig in a North London venue. The common love for Aerosmith and the affinity in the musical taste brought the three to the idea of forming an Aerosmith Tribute Band. Toxic Twins were starting to take shape: Aaron vocals, Frank J. guitar and Terry bass. The other two twins were very soon found: Dom on guitar and Will on drums, and by the end of the year Toxic Twins were ready to rock!
When things were starting to work, during summer 2001 Aaron was forced to leave the band after an operation to his throat, and Toxic Twins were challenged with the hard task of finding another Steven Tyler. After meeting many singers they eventually bump into John, a very experienced rock singer who had just left another tribute band based in the States to return to the UK. Shortly after, Will leaves the band to carry on with an original project he had going on for a while. Luckily, it wasn't long before Toxic Twins met Noam 'Nono', and knew he was the right drummer for them. But changes hadn't finished yet. At the end of February 2002 James replaces Dom as Brad Whitford. The singer is also replaced in July 2002, when Luke (already singer with Eurosmith, the Oldest Italian Aerosmith Tribute Band) takes over the position.
The uncanny vocal and physical resemblance of Luke to Steven Tyler had brought the Twins to ask him to join the band and perfect their act. The actual performance level and professional attitude have gained the Toxic Twins a reputation as one of the best ever tribute acts to grace the stage.
