We have an awful lot of fun on stage. I think a lot of people are gonna be surprised by just how much fun it is because the songs are kind of, you know, heartbreaking. (Laughter) But there’s an awful lot of joy created from that heartbreak. It’s funny how these things are changed by an environment and by people in the room. You know, people singing back a song that I wrote on my own in the darkness in Glasgow or Belfast, with the rain dripping through the crack of a window. It’s amazing how they turn into something extraordinary, restorative and redemptive when they’re sung by a large collection of people. We’re very blessed that wherever we go in the world, people sing it back to us in high volume.
I never expect it but I always hope—and I’m very rarely let down by our fans.
