Concrete Blonde arrives in the next week for two concerts in the south of Brazil. ROCK EXPRESS had the opportunity to make a few questions to the lead singer Johnette Napolitano about this short tour and the new work of the band. Check it out:
By Edu Lawless
Rock Express – What represents for Concrete Blonde to come back to Brazil, where you chose record your first live album? (“Live in Brazil” – 2002)
RE – And what Brazilian fans can expect from Concrete Blonde? Are you working on new songs and maybe on a new album?
Johnette – We want to record a live DVD next year and tour all of South America. We pressed a single on white vinyl for our short tours in the US this last year, and we love that. “Rosalie” is available through CDBABY for download. I don’t know how to make our new work available in South America, but we’re trying.
RE – What do you expect from the show and the Brazilian fans in this tour almost one decade since you last played here?
Johnette – Brazilian fans know us well and as usual can expect a great show.
Concrete Blonde concerts will be at Porto Alegre (May, 17) and Curitiba (May, 18 – with Gene Loves Jezebel).
