Tokio Hotel “It will be a spectacular show”

The German band will be performing for the first time in South America, arriving in Chile on the 28th of November with their Humanoid City Live Tour 2010. And on the eve of their long-awaited visit, the band talked about their show and about the lives as Tokio Hotel.

The day for their first visit to South America gets closer every day. The band will have 5 shows on this side of the world: Tuesday November 23rd in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Thursday November 25th in Lima, Peru. Sunday November 28th in Santiago, Chile. Tuesday November 30th in Monterrey, Mexico; and Thursday December 2nd in Mexico City, Mexico.

Bill Kaulitz, Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schafer will present their show in our country, specifically, at 9PM in Movistar Arena Santiago, where they will come with their Humanoid City Live Tour 2010, tour where they have introduced their third studio album, “Humanoid,” and which has also taken them almost all over Europe.

The success they have found on this part of the planet has motivated them to visit with this show where they have set up a true futuristic city. In fact, they have travelled across Europe, with a team of 50 people and 11 trucks that transports and installs a gigantic stage, that also includes pyrotechnics, special effects, a visual show full of avant-garde and high-tech elements; . . . and an amazing design. All this, so the boys of Tokio Hotel can shine even more in front of their fans.

However, because of the distance between the countries the band will be visiting, they won’t be able to bring the same stage and infrastructure that comes with the show. But the band has assured that the rest will be exactly the same (the outfits, lightning, pyro and special effects).
This is how the band prepares to visit South America, and if time allows it, they hope to see more of every city where they will land directly from Los Angeles, USA, city where they have lived for a couple of weeks already with the purpose of focusing on new material.

Tokio Hotel spoke with our magazine, and talked about their life beyond the lights and the stage.

Fans in South America are anxious because of your visit. What have you been doing lately?
Bill: We have been spending time in the studio, rehearsing to get everything ready. We are actually working to deliver the best in our shows. We don’t want to just give them a good show, we want to give our everything and surprise them.
Tom: Often people ask us why we take so long to prepare our shows, and of course, this is a compliment; but it really does take a long time and energy to prepare a good show.
Bill: There’s a lot of movement on stage and, above all, the show will be spectacular, so we’re hoping to satisfy our fans.

You have lived through a lot as a band, do you still get nervous when you go on stage?
Bill: Yes, we get nervous because of many things, like for example on this tour, we don’t know what’s going to happen and if they still like our music. You can compare it to how you feel when you go back to school after summer vacations.

Do you feel that you have become a better band in the last few years?
Gustav: Absolutely, we feel that we all play better, because we play many live shows and also our tours have helped us a lot. Definitely, we have learned a lot from the shows.
Georg: And even though we never took much music lessons, you can see for yourselves, I mean, listening to our first and our last album, which one sounds better.
Bill: And well, we have many critics . . . they say we can’t speak English or that our English level is too low . . . and we don’t really care. I mean, we are not only musicians and composers; we are four normal boys who love making music. This is what we have come to over the years with a bit of music lessons . . . and on our own.

Do you feel that this is YOUR year?
Gustav: Yes, it’s ours.
Tom: And we are giving our best to finish it successfully.
Bill: It’s not a matter of going up or down in popularity, because we expect to continue with Tokio Hotel for a long time, but this is an important year. We see it as a live year, to finish it we are going to South America. . . And we are hoping that this is an unforgettable experience.

Have you also become great friends?
Bill: No, we have always been great friends.
Tom: You have to be good friends when you’re in a band; we spend so much time together so it couldn’t be any other way. We are friends since the beginning as a school band, that means, from the start to the great concerts that we have done, and we have always been together.

You have also played in the United States. How do you feel about succeeding there as well?
Bill: That tour was very good, but travelling around Europe makes us feel at home. Don’t misinterpret me, we are happy when we get on a plane to travel someplace else, but when we arrive home is a very good sensation as well.

And when are you planning on taking a vacation?
Bill: We will finally be able to do it for Christmas, after spending those days with our families.
