Michael Monroe confirmed for Download
Legendary rocker Michael Monroe is hitting the UK again this summer having just been announced for the infamous Download Festival 2010! While the band demos new material in NYC for their debut, they’re still finding time to get a few summer festival appearances in.
After a sensational stint at SXSW this year followed by a captivating debut UK show earlier this month at London’s Islington Academy, the band, completed by Ginger from The Wildhearts, Sami Yaffa, Steve Conte and Karl Rosqvist, are more than a little bit excited to revisit the UK audiences.
Ginger shared some fond memories of Download;
“Fuck yeah!! Download is the first and the best. I was educated at Donington Monsters Of Rock, it was always the place where magic happened and the stories would last a year until the next one. I've had so many great moments at this festival (bad acid trips, public blowjobs by complete strangers, arms impaled onstage by the Psycho Cyborgs ...the list goes on) and playing here with Michael Monroe continues the theme of great moment after great moment. We're bringing the punk, we're bringing the rock n roll, now all we need is you. Be there or be elsewhere.”
