Legendary punk band The Damned are searching for bands to support them on the upcoming UK tour.

Formed back in 1976 this is a band that have seen and done everything over the past decades.

This competition is open to everyone and anything. Burlesque dancers, magicians, jugglers, Punch and Judy (well maybe not but hey ….) and musicians as long as they can match the excitement and edgy vibe we’re looking for.

If you think you’re up to it then we want to hear from you NOW. To apply is easy – just send us an email with the link to a Youtube site (or similar) or mp3 of your act to mail. Don’t forget to include which gig you're applying for in the subject line – see the tour list below.
