Around this time of year we usually find ourselves in the middle of making a series of announcements about Paul’s touring plans. This year is no different and he has already confirmed dates in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Czech Republic, The Netherlands and Belgium. Phew. Eight different countries… and we’re not even in April yet!
We’ve been lucky enough to watch Paul play from the side of the stage in a few countries, including to 50,000 fans in Tokyo. Having witnessed something like that, you can see exactly why Paul loves playing live. We’re always happy when we can manage to gather together a few friends for a party. Now, imagine being able to gather together 50,000 friends for a party and for them to want to sing along to your songs. And then to do that several nights in a row. Wow!
With the first dates of the new ‘One On One’ tour only a few weeks away now, Debbie from the US sent in the perfect question for this month’s ‘You Gave Me The Answer’: "What is your favourite part of touring?"
We spoke with Paul as he was starting rehearsals for his new tour. He responded,
“Thank you for your question, Debbie. The things I like about touring are firstly, coming into contact with our audience, which often seems like a family reunion. Secondly, just getting the chance to fire up our instruments and play them!”
Paul’s instruments are being “fired up” as we write, and everyone on the crew is super excited about getting back out therefor a new year of one on ones!
Will you be seeing Paul on any of his tour dates this year? Let us know in the comments below...
