Hey, as we all know, next year is their 30th b-day anni.
Anyone got any special plans? I know it's early, but I'm quite currious if the band will plan anything next year or if any fans sits outthere with a desire to throw a tribute event..?

It has been announced that the band will play 30 gigs in Denmark and 30 gigs outside Denmark in spring 2014. I bet they'll hit Copenhagen on the actual date. No exact dates or locations has been published yet. Jesper said to some german media that it wouldn't be usual shows since many songs would be played that they haven't performed in many years. I'm very excited about this tour.

Regards
Klaus

This might be a novice-question, but then you need to give me a pro-answer..
How come their birthday are marked as beeing in 2014, when they also played in 82-83??

as Toksvig says they were formed in '82. But it's always been their official birthday on march 4th 1984, as that was the day Cobber joined for real. Claus, you should know this, it's found in the book Smiley Marl, I guess I missed that about the many dates. Btw. I read an articles in JP saying: 'Newest goals: To wrap the asignment with "the greatest hits" up, in a new way and become a little more aware of our past, now that 2014 becomes a 30th year. We ain't affraid to play what we like, but we need to embrace our history and be proud of what we got.' Also it seems like they're eager to build up something in the East - atleast they've hired a chinese to help with an export set-up.
Guess I'm hoping for something like the Net Pet concert they held at Christiania some years ago, though I sadly didn't attend it..

Well perhaps they just felt reborn in '84??
Also considering the fact, they consider their birthday the day cobber joined, perhaps they should change their birthday to august '99, as I recall that being the time Laust joined (or atleast his first live performance), making them only 14 years old. Impressive as they date back to '82 Smiley-wink (perhaps the secret of eternal youth??)

What about Roskilde 2014? Roskilde isn´t the same without D-A-D!

We all know that the Roskilde Festival has made a decrease over the past years in the quality of choosing bands – more pop and less rock. That means that DAD has not played there since 2005! And only two times since 2000 – which is actually strange after their legendary and beautiful concert due to the accident in year 2000.

Let us write and demand D-A-D back the year they turn 30.

Now that's what I call a tour :-), too bad that Bochum/Zeche is not included..........I was 100% sure they would play there again.

Maybe next time.............

@Longhorn: I'm with you, the shows at "Zeche" always have been the best around here.
Beyond that Live Music Hall in Cologne is not a good pick as long as I am asked. It's way too big for being called club anymore. The show at 'MTC' in 2000 was a club-gig, also 'Prime Club' would have been okay in means of a venue for club-tour (just when it comes to cologne). A show in one of those smaller placed plus one at 'Zeche' would have been way more attractive I think.
If they were looking for a bigger place to cover Ruhr Area as well as the area around cologne in one show I recall 'Essigfabrik' in Cologne as pretty okay as well as 'FZW' in Dortmund.

Last, in the past I've had myself some negative experiences with 'Live Music Hall'. Very rude security. I decided never to go there again.

Hey Captain,

since there's still five European dates missing, I am not totally giving up hope ;-). Although, there's so many German dates already that I really doubt any of those five missing shows will take place here. Hopefully there will be a show in Holland and/or Belgium that's reachable......

As much as I love to see so many upcoming shows, I have to realize that Cologne is the only show for which we don't really have to travel :-(. I was expecting a bit more to be honest.....

Also we were planning to catch a few shows in Denmark at the beginning of this tour but every concert that is at least a bit closer to the German border is during the week - plans buried already !

@P - which shows yre you planning to do ? Contact me - maybe we can work something out (apart from the barbecue that never happens ;-).

Have a nice Sunday everyone !
