The Rise thank Peter Andre for his support, saying, “He’s done things for us which we never asked him to do”
As fans of Peter Andre will know, he’s being supported on his live tour – which Peter has of course currently suspended so that he can be with his terminally ill brother Andrew – by Michael Gazzard and Anthony Goldsbrough who perform as The Rise…
And News Shopper reports today that Michael and Anthony have thanked Peter for putting them on the music industry map by supporting them and their work.
NS reports that Michael told Vibe, “Firstly we were session musicians and we played guitar for Pete in front of 50,000 people at T4 on The Beach – it was mad.
“Then we played for him on QVC seven days in a row when he was selling his album and we got really pally with him…
“He’s tweeted about us, written a complete article about us in his new! magazine column, saying we’re a talent that’s not getting recognised.
“He’s a really nice, humble guy. Pete and I have the same crap sense of humour – we love puns and plays on words.
“He’s a very funny bloke.”
He added, “Now we feel so lucky to be doing this tour. There have been so many highlights – The O2 was amazing.
“We won’t forget that in a while. It felt like it went so quick, the crowd were amazing.”
Peter’s live tour is expected to resume early next year. You can click here to go to his official website for more information.
