Coldplay.com spoke to Jim Ward from Coldplay's latest support act. WithTexan alt-country dudes Sleepercar beginning their run of dates supporting Coldplay in Detroit tonight, they called up frontman Jim Ward to find out a bit more about them.
Are you excited about your shows with Coldplay?
Yeah, I am for sure. I've been friends with those guys for a long time and we've tried to do shows before, so I'm glad it's happening now. I feel that it's the right time.
Where did you meet them?
In the hotel at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas show in LA in 2000. They were out there on Parachutes and I was with a band called At The Drive In. We were both playing that show. And then a few weeks later we both went on tour on Big Day Out in Australia and I ended up spending a lot of time with them, getting to know them. We've been friends ever since.
