    Is what I am hearing. Which will be AMAZING. The buzz in the States about that tour is something else, it's the most anticipated in years.
    42 arena dates, playing to over a million people by Christmas.
    Chosen from 150 applicants, some of them VERY big names in themselves.
    And the possibility of the full world tour after.
    How good is that? :D
    Well the fuck done boys! I think this should kick the doors clean in for them.

    Congrats in abundance to The Answer - real music for a change instead of simpering nicey shite. Roll on.

    Holy crap, that's amazing!

    edit:

    Just did a quick search of old emails and found a plug for The Answer supporting Dirty Stevie in Katy Daly's, Tue 4th June 2002, adm 2.

    Still you can't have it that good forever; AC/DC will have to suffice.

    I knew it would be down hill all the way for The Answer after that gig (in front of about 5 punters if I recall correctly).

    Absolutely buckin' insane....

    However, it's always been a nailed on certainty that The Answer were going to support DC at some stage - with the Alberts link - but the fact it's a North American tour makes it even more special. The lads are living the dream, granted it's [i:ee6bb51b38]my dream[/i:ee6bb51b38], but I'll forgive them! :lol:

    Well done lads from all of us lot!

    Well done them lads - Check them out next Thursday night in Spring & Airbrake [16/10/08]. I suspect it may be a while before we see them back on these shores!!
  17. avatar dirty stevie smitty
    Incredible stuff.

    Very happy for them, and huge step is being made.

    They have come a long way from that night in Katy's and totally deserve it, as I've never seen a harder working band. :D

    Cracker for them! Up the lawds.
  23. avatar T Entertainment
    I get the impression that while the Albert connection could hardly have hindered them (!), there was real and fierce competition for this slot. Really big names desperate to get in there, also wielding a lot of clout.
    It's simply the biggest break a hard rock band could possibly get. America hasn't really had proper exposure to the Answer as yet. I'd be very surprised if they don't go down a storm.
  24. avatar Philip PAYOLA
    Absolutley Chris - I've no doubt 99% of hard rock bands in the States would have wanted that slot - I always suspected that The Answer would support DC....but their entire North American tour?? - amazing.

    I agree with you that they'll make the most of it too.
  25. avatar tinpot anto
    It is really nice to see a support slot going to precisely the band that most deserve it and can benefit the most from it, rather than a bunch of has-beens or some greenback pet label project without a hope.
  26. avatar goatboy
    Rumour has it that The Answer are the opening support with Rikmandu as the main support.
  27. avatar T Entertainment
    Yeah I know what you mean, I always assumed they'd do any Irish dates, this sounded almost too good to be true.
    The S&A show will be quite a party. :-)
  28. avatar kagura
    absolutely f**kin brilliant news! :-D

    congrats to them, its thoroughly deserved.

    (p.s. i am now going to spend the entire weekend unashamedly telling people
    that my band supported a band that are supporting ac/dc :lol: )

    thats bloody amazing!

    Congrats to the lads. Well deserved.
