Anvil to open for AC/DC at three stadium dates
What a dream come true for bad-luck Canadian rockers Anvil: The stars of their own acclaimed documentary -- The Story of Anvil -- have been booked as the opening act for AC/DC on three stadium dates.
Anvil plays Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., on Tuesday, Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Friday and Magnetic Hill in Moncton, New Brunswick, on Aug. 6, according to Pollstar.com. "Up until now, the band’s gig has been performing to moviegoers after the documentary is showcased," the website reported.
“We’re really excited about these show, we’ve only heard awesome things about playing in football stadiums,” drummer Robb Reiner told Pollstar. “I was with the Green Day guys last night and they were telling me, ‘Man, it’s probably going to be the gig of your life.’ ”
