Commented Ted: "I am sorry to see that a few of my good friends couldn't make it to the Z Rock 2009 fest stage as originally planned, but I am really psyched to be returning to the U.K. with my own killer USA band which features my brothers Vic Rivera, Eddie Campbell, Doug Odell and new drummer Ed Faust. To play a show with John Waite (one of my IDOLS!), and get to see WIG WAM (one of my favorite new bands!) live and get a taste of all of the other great bands is a personal dream come true and we are very much looking forward to it. Expect to hear a cool set exclusive to this show, which will include a few cool songs from my own musical career outside of DANGER DANGER, and some Poley/Rivera slammers along with some of the usual fun favorites! I will, of course, be on hand as usual to try to sell you stuff, sign whatever you bring, take photos, and drink your booze should you be so generously inclined as to offer up a shot of southern comfort."

Tickets are priced at £47.50 and are available at www.zrecords.net.
