It’s the co-headline tour we’ve been dreaming of but The Answer and The Union have finally joined forces to create the very best in British classic rock.

Two of the best-loved bands on the revivalist scene will head out in March on a 13-date tour of the UK and Ireland. 

And a delighted Cormac Neeson, frontman with The Answer, said: “The Answer and The Union joining forces for a once in a lifetime rockin rollercoaster ride around the UK??? Yes Please.

“The Answer are there with bells on and we’re gonna rock your socks off people!!! The rock n roll revival continues…long live the REVIVAL!!!!!”

The Union founder and Thunder stalwart Luke Morley is just as stoked to be heading out on the road with fellow standard bearers for the burgeoning classic rock scene.

“Pete and I are really looking forward to touring with The Answer and it’s a real pleasure to be flying the flag for British rock music,” he said.

“I think both bands are ideally suited and it’ll be a great experience for audience and musicians alike! Roll on March!”
