Alice Cooper Announcement – Explanation

By Kris | July 18, 2002

As an addendum to yesterday’s announcement about the Alice Cooper dates, The Wildhearts would like to explain why they pulled out of the tour.

“We were booked as special guests on the tour,” says Ginger. “We moved around tour dates and single releases to coincide with the tour. Then yesterday we found out that Thunder are the new special guests and we are supposed to play underneath them. Which is just never going to happen, y’know?

“It went from being something of a cool curiosity gig to a nostalgia trip, complete with Rob Halford being added to the bill. I apologise to anyone that has shelled out money for this trip down Jurassic Junction, but it’s in the band’s best interests that we pull out before they add Quireboys and Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts.”

There is some good news, though: The Wildhearts are now hoping to extend their September / October headlining tour.
