Co-owner and booker of Cherry, James Young, was understandably ecstatic releasing the announcement. “It has been a decade since Fu Manchu’s California Crossing tour in Australia” he shared, “There’s going to be so much fuzz on the speakers in AC/DC Lane that we may have to shave them.”
“In the past when we’ve had The Datsuns, Rose Tattoo and Died Pretty to a certain extent we were after the best that was available and presented to us. This year we just sat back and said, who would be the best band in the whole world to play CherryRock012? Fu Manchu. Agreed. OK. Let’s go get ‘em!”
Also adding to the festivites are Black Cobra, Matt Sonic & the High Times, Bitter Sweet Kicks, Vice Grip Pussies, My Dynamite, The Ramshackle Army and Valentiine with many more soon to be announced.
