“Every night, in every city, will be an amazing experience and that definitely goes for the bands too," Moist’s David Usher said in a media statement over the weekend. "We’ve been on festivals and tours together over the years, but this unique shared bill with all four acts in a different order every night is going to be killer. We can’t wait to get this rolling!"
Hugh Dillon of the Headstones enthused: “These bands, coast to coast, summer 2020, where the %#@ do we sign up!! Are you kidding me, this is a once in a lifetime Rock & Roll show."
Big Wreck’s Ian Thornley weighed in saying, "It's going to be so much fun getting out there with these guys every night. That's a lot of hits and a lot of rock n' roll. What a show... it’s going to be a big summer!"
And The Tea Party’s Jeff Martin said, “I’m not sure that there’s a single concertgoer out there that can handle what’s going to happen when all 4 of our bands are firing on all cylinders night after night. This is a tour not to be missed. Mark my words.”
