During Operator Please’s previous tour of Australia, bassist Ashley McConnell tells Time Off magazine the band were star struck by the headlining act, the Arctic Monkeys. “Coming up to our first show with the Arctic Monkeys, I think we were all kind of freaked out,” she said. “We saw them onstage before a gig just doing a routine sound-check and were like, ‘Oh my god, they’re right there!’ But our first two tours have probably been the biggest, production-wise, as well so I guess it was really good to just see how [Arctic Monkeys] operate and have grown as a band over time. And that was a good thing to see, and you know, we did get to talk to the guys a bit, so it was cool to meet them and talk to them about what it’s like when things start to escalate and stuff like that.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
