What’s all this? The DC3 paying tribute to THEMSELVES?? Supported by THEMSELVES??
That’s right folks. It’s a major milestone in the career of The DC3, celebrating ONE YEAR IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS!
So The DC3 are commemorating this occasion in a gala performance on the 3rd of February 2012 at our northern suburban version of the Royal Albert Hall – The Regal Ballroom!
And to help them celebrate, ROOT! will be reforming for a one-show only comeback!
That’s not all. The line-up will be completed by a list of CELEBRITY GUESTS! More details as soon as they come to hand.
Unbelievable! The DC3 celebrating their one year anniversary. It’s been a thrilling journey. In that time The DC3 have undergone massive changes, yet kept their freshness in a career that has seen them:
- Go electric at the Newport Folk Festival
- Perform in front of a world record 65,000 fans at Shea Stadium
- Invent hip hop with the groundbreaking ‘The Message’
- Die in a plane crash
- Release ‘Justin Bieber’s Christmas Album’
And now, The DC3 will bring their latest bewildering ‘installation’ to Melbourne’s newest rock venue, in the ornate, salubrious rococo-ness of the Regal Ballroom. Supported by a performance, in their cowboy-hatted splendor, of the fully reformed line-up of ROOT!
Speaking about their comeback, here’s the final word from ROOT! front man DC Root:
‘It’s been 18 months… a lot of water under the bridge. A lot of life experience. We’ve all had families… breakdowns… addictions… we resisted the many offers to do a comeback tour, but finally, when we heard that Powderfinger weren’t using the Lear Jet… the time seemed right.’
‘Mind you… we’re not sure about playing with The DC3. We’ve heard they’re cunts.’
The DC3, supported by ROOT! with special guests TBA.
Feb 3 at the Regal Ballroom (216 High St, Northcote)
