"Support" is a euphemism for Opened For. So Artists big themselves up for having done done so also by using the euphemistic phrase "Shared the Stage With." Usually, it's a handful of acts, which is great - for the exposure you're supposed to get (if people are in the house) - and the expanded name recognition you get (if you ensure your name is on the bill).
In "our" case - and as KRucial Reggae, we speak of Dub Station (the Label band or all-star players who've performed as players on KRucial sponsored events) - who's opened for a veritable who's who of Acts in the Industry:
