You are not used to performing in Europe, let alone in such big arenas. How did you prepare yourself for these shows?
It’s quite scary. The biggest crowd I performed for was a group of 21,000 people. It’s especially strange after the pandemic because I haven’t done that many live shows. I still learn with every show I do, like with my own U.S. tour in January and my U.K. tour that just finished. So, I’ve been performing a little bit now, but to much smaller crowds. This is just next level insane!
We had an interview with you in November 2020, which was at a different time. How do you think your life (as an artist) has changed since everything is open again? Has that changed your perspective on being an artist?
100 percent, and it’s quite a lot to keep up with everything, all the time. As soon as the pandemic happened, everything changed. I was a lot on social media. That’s over since we’re touring again. And I haven’t been away from home for this long. Now it’s learning to be on a tour bus and to be around your band every second of the day. It’s like you’re always adjusting, but it feels good and exciting to be back out and doing shows.
