Worst Support Act


So who was the worst ever????

For me, it's got to be Tank, supporting Diamond Head on the Borrowed Time tour. They were a last minute addition, filling in for Twisted Sister (who dropped out when they suddenly started becoming famous enough to tour in their own right). Tank were absolutely awful - bludgeoning riffs and meat-shredder vocals. Yuk emoticon

Oliver-Dawson Saxon supporting Dio were pretty horrible too.

Re: Worst Support Act


Bad Habits opened for dP (either w/Satch or Purpendicular tour)in Belgium.They were SO bad.The singer was out of tune, and the two guitarists were tryin to do Thin Lizzy style solos...it was just awful!
When I saw YES for the "owner of a lonely heart", the support act was a screen with Loony Tunes cartoons...At first we didn't know if it was the intro of the concert or not...At least it was funny.
When I saw ASIA (first tour), it was a clown doing magic tricks on playbacks...how weird!!!

Re: Worst Support Act


Worst support for Purple was on the UK leg of the Purpenducular tour, what were they called, Wham Bam? Damn Jam?

Worst support for any band... er, yep, probably that group, Spam Ham, Pan Slam, whatever.

Honestly... I can't remember emoticon I thought it was Pan Ram, but I could be wrong. It was a german (?) metal group.

Re: Worst Support Act


Yeah, that was Pan Ram and they were awful...
There have been a lot of bad supports, if I look back to all concerts I've seen (not only DP). Lately, Molly Hatchet also belonged into that group of support acts...
