Thanks so much to Rosie for all the updates — but new interviews with Tom and Tom from Bamboozle were featured in Fuse’s Number One Countdown last night. They talked about the upcoming tour, and Tony mentioned how they will be closing the tour in Hawaii — so all of those rumors of a South America tour… sorry to say, probably won’t be happening at this point. Nothing was confirmed by the band in the first place, but dates were showing up on several sites. Tony also mentioned that they don’t plan on switching up the setlist on the tour — for Gabe and Steve’s sake. Thanks again to Rosie, here are a couple of re-caps of the interviews for us! Too bad I don’t get Fuse, but here are a couple of repeat dates for fans who want to check it out if you missed it!
Wednesday 5/13 @ 1am & 3pm, Thursday 5/14 @ 11am & 7pm, Sunday 5/18 @ 12pm
t’s on now! Stephen is interviewing Tom and Tony-he talked to them at Bamboozle.They haven’t said anything really new so far,just mentioning again how Gwen had suggested that they play shows to get inspired to write he new record,and that Tony is bringing a studio on his tour bus.Tom mentioned that he thinks the tour is ”recharging their batteries” and that the the first show at Borgata was ”glorious”.Apparantly they are going to play ND videos in between the interview segments-Stephen said they are doing a chronological look back at ND’s videos. Right now they’re playing JAG. Haha,they just played Spiderwebs and Stephen said he had that song as his outgoing message on his phone for four years. He asked them about the opening acts,and Tom said that it’s a fun process choosing the opening bands,mentioning that half of it involves choosing bands they like and the other half is about choosing bands the audience will be stoked to see. Stephen noted that Hayley of Paramore is a big fan of ND and asked if they thought ND would be passing the torch to Paramore;Tony said no,that they are keeping the torch,and that there are plenty of torches to go around,lol. Tony is saying that they’ve always been a very energetic band,and that that was ingrained int them by watching bands like Madness and The Specials. He said there are goofy moments onstage,and joked that there is a prize for who is the goofiest.Tom said it’s usually between Tony and Adrian,though Gwen can be goofy at times.They acknowledged the Clockwork Orange inspired tour clothes,saying Gwen is very influential in that department.Tony said though eh hasn’t seen Clockwork Orange in a while.They just played Don’t Speak-geez,i hope i can see the whole show.
