Belgium-bred Loud Rockers
Belgium-bred loud rockers Millionaire — Tim Vanhamel (vocals, guitar, keyboard, programming), Bas Remans (bass), Dave Schroyen (drums), and Aldo Struyf (guitar, keyboard) — were formed in 1999 by Vanhamel, former guitarist of Evil Superstars, dEUS, and Eagles of Death Metal. After recording their first album, Outside the Simian Flock, in 2001, the band was noticed by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age while Millionaire was opening for Masters of Reality. Homme asked Millionaire to support QOTSA on tour, and when it came time for Millionaire’s second album, Paradisiac (2005), Homme was found in the production chair.
Support band 45ACIDBABIES is a Dutch group comprised of Sophia de Geus, Daniel Brem, Sam Verbeek and Giorgio Paquay, fourinherently different creative personalities hellbent on somehow making it work. The band is rapidly gaininginternational fanfare and acclaim with their combustible, boundary-blurring shows, shrewdly incorporating elementsof hip hop, dance punk, garage rock, and pop. This bold, all-embracing approach is extended by often bizarre stagevisuals and props.
