Past Opening Acts for DM

Postby aylasaur2 » Tue May 10, 2005 2:09 am

Can anyone remember any of the opening acts for past tours? If so, what were they and do you recall if these bands were signed to major labels or not? I am doing a little research....

Thanks...

From the shows I've seen:

OMD = 101
wire = 101
thomas dolby = 101

Nitzer Ebb = 1990
Electronic (in L.A.) = 1990

stabbing westward = 1994

I googled it and this site has some info http://members.fortunecity.se/kmdm/songsthatdmplayedduringthetours.htm

You beat me to it!

Anyone remember the shocking Hard Corps ??? Only seemed to have one bass synthesizer chord and the synth player seemed to be trying to copulate with his DIM socket. Didn't get any better at the end when the female lead singer took off her trench coat to show herslef naked at the end.

Where did Van Morrison support?? A festival surely? Whilst I like his music it's a bit off at a tangent to the mighty DM.
