Franck Carduccie & The Fantastic Squad captured for posterity on scintillating live form in 2021.
CD in digipak.
When the world started to reopen in the summer of 2021, the Fantastic Squad and myself kicked off "The Answer Tour".
Being a 100% independent band means we have to take care of gig bookings, tour management, driving, setting up our gear every night, packing up, van loading, promoting, designing visual materials ...
Oh and occasionally, we also play music and try to entertain y'all at gigs.
When we arrived already tired in the Netherlands to play one of my favourite venues in the world and record this show for a potential CD/DVD/BluRay release, we knew we weren't gonna be in our very best shape, but we also knew we were gonna give it 200% ... because that's what we always do!
This amazing tour can be summarised with a few figures:
8 countries, 62 gigs including 3 in our hometown - Lyon - and 4 in our “heart-town” - London - 11 festivals, 4 legendary venues, tens of thousands of kilometres driven, and dozens of sleepless nights.
Add to that 7692 chocolate bars swallowed (not counting other sweets and treats), 444 focaccias, 315 tandoori chickens, 294 late night kebabs and countless plates of homemade pasta eaten, 83256 litres of tea (and a few other beverages) drunk and, last but not least, thousands of smiles in front of us at the gigs.
We are forever grateful for all the love and support you showed us night after night.
YOU are what made it worth all these efforts!
NB: Oh and we also supported Sting in front of 15 000 people and he said we're "a really tough act to follow"
