Cover Band Playing After Soccer Game Worried That Opening Act Won't Bring Enough Fans

Des Moines, IA - 80’s rock cover band SpiderWarz indicated that they were concerned that the opening act of Des Moines United v Rockingham Atletico FC is not going to bring enough people to their upcoming gig.


“They created a Facebook event page, but honestly… there’s not that many people RSVPing,” stated lead singer David Lee Hoth. “I’m guessing that they are going to rely on walk up ticket sales.”

Sources within Des Moines United indicate that the club had a bunch of friends RSVP to the upcoming game so they were certain they would show.

“Yeah, I’ve heard that one before,” stated Hoth. “Honestly, it’s looking like they are charging too much for their cover and we are going to be stuck with another gig where we are playing for each other by the time we close out the set.”

With an uptempo set based upon Guns N’ Roses, The Scorpions, Motley Crue, and Poison, SpiderWarz is hoping to retain the few people that do come out to see the opening act.

“They asked us to backline the gig and we are just waiting for confirmation that they are going to be quick with the soundcheck and tear down after their set,” stated Hoth to our reporter. “Hopefully we can get on stage and really start rocking so that we don’t lose everyone who is probably tired of sitting for that long.”

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Hoth notices Des Moines United sneaking out during their second song.
