Check out the video-interview with Joey Tempest, taken right after the free acoustic showcase (and looong signing session) in Milan, Italy, on May 7th, 2012. There's also pics and videos of the showcase!
On Monday, May 7th 2012, Europe's Joey Tempest and John Norum came to Milan for an acoustic showcase at Feltrinelli. They were there to introduce fans to Bag Of Bones, their latest album, so they played three songs and then answered some fan questions - and then, they signed everything for everyone there. Like, 500 people got to greet them, hug them, kiss them...
Right after the signing session, Joey was kind enough to sit down with Musica Metal to answer some questions. Enjoy the video-interview!
Here's the list of questions asked:
00:13 - Acoustic showcase setlist choice
01:20 - Bag of Bones is in the charts everywhere!
02:15 - Reviewers seem surprised that bag of Bones doesn't sound like The Final Countdown...
03:10 - Europe's sound has matured by going back to the roots of what they were listening to as teenagers
04:15 - Did John Norum bring the Blues to Europe?
05:25 - Is Blues the music that musicians gravitate towards when they get older?
07:15 - Are the lyrics on Bag Of Bones personal? they seem to be a bit melancholic, or pessimistic!
10:10 - Do Europe hang around with other bands from the Swedish or international rock scene?
11:27 - Italy loves Europe!
12:43 - 'Easter Egg' video bonus!
A pic of me and Joey right after the interview. Just because.
Here's a photo gallery of the Feltrinelli Milano acoustic show (which was free, by the way: fans were extremely happy to be there!).
These were the songs played:
01. Rock The Night
02. Not Supposed To Sing The Blues / Ti Amo
03. Final Countdown
'Ti Amo' ('I Love You') is a song by Umberto Tozzi, and it was improvised by Joey when someone from the audience yelled it to him. It was a seriously fun moment.
Here's a video of the whole show. Have fun!
