Lex Q107 Radio - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

2015 World Tour

"Well as always we're beholden to the hits you know and we're fortunate to have a lot of them. So there's certain songs that we're always gonna play. Nut we always try an mix it up a bit you know and go deeper with some album cuts and have certain songs that are more production based duel highlights you know that kind of stuff. (We're) talking about doing Paper Sun on this tour which is from the Euphoria album. We haven't played that for a long time. As one of our deeper album cuts. Something from High 'n' Dry. You know more direct rock stuff. You know we just try and bring some different arrangements to the songs."

2015 Tour Rehearsals

"It'll actually all just come together at the eleventh hour because we kind of trade emails and we talk about this stuff but then it never actually really firms up until we get into rehearsal."

"You know the longer this band has been together the shorter and shorter the rehearsal time we schedule. So you know like 20 something years ago we would have scheduled a month or even six weeks or something you know. But now it's just like a few days. So we're starting right around the 9th of April. We're gonna start rehearsals."
