Money For Rope’s Michael Cini broke his arm valiantly playing in the Community Cup, and now The Vasco Era’s Ted O’Neil will fill-in on their tour.
Last Sunday’s Reclink Community Cup charity football game between rock stars and 3RRR and PBS DJs was another resounding success for everybody… except Money For Rope bassist Michael Cini. He botched a tackle in the first 90 seconds on the game and broke his arm.
Thankfully, he’s had surgery to install a metal plate in there and will be ready for next year’s game. But the timing couldn’t be much worse for him as a bass player, as Money For Rope have just released a new single and are days away from their tour with Kingswood and Damn Terran.
Time for Ted O’Neil of The Vasco Era to stand up and fill in for him on the shows, which kick off tomorrow and Friday at The Worker’s Club in Fitzroy, then take the three bands to Adelaide, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Brisbane, Byron and the Gold Coast.
We wish Michael all the best with his recovery. Check out Money For Rope’s new single ‘Misery Lane’ below, as well as clips from Kingswood and Damn Terran.
