Classic Arsenal Back Four Reunite for Arena Tour
London, March 20th 2011
Hold on to your hats, ladies! Following on from the successful reunions of boybands such as Take That, Boyzone and Blue, the classic Arsenal back four of Lee Dixon, Tony Adams, Steve Bould and Nigel Winterburn have announced that they are getting back together for a special arena tour in the autumn.
At a packed press conference at the Dorchester Hotel in central London this afternoon, creative mastermind Steve “Baldy” Bould insisted that it had been on the cards for some time.
“I was in constant contact with Bernie (Winterburn) and I’d speak to the Dickmeister (Dixon) every month or so, but everything fell into place when we finally reconciled with the Beer Monster (Adams)” said Bould as flashbulbs lit up the room.
“It’s good to be back with the lads” added Adams, sporting a large crucifix around his neck and wearing the deepest v-neck t-shirt ever created. “I know we went our seperate ways for a while but this just feels right.”
Women across the UK and beyond are thought to be already queuing outside of the tour venues ready for when the tickets go on sale this coming Friday. The assembled press asked the fab four if they would be performing any new material, to which Dixon replied that they had been working on “some amazing new routines around the new craze for zonal marking.”
Winterburn was more concerned with revisiting the classics, saying that he couldn’t wait to “stand in a row and raise our arms, screaming offside as the crowd goes wild.”
Rumours abound that David Seaman was asked to join the group but was unable to grow back his signature ponytail in time.
