Ticketmaster has an exclusive Q&A with Phoenix, asking him from everything like sharing any picture on his phone to Music for Relief. Read the whole Q&A session with Ticketmaster below.
Ticketmaster: You’re performing at Rock in Rio again this year, and for the first time the festival is coming to the US. What’s it like to play this festival and how does it feel to bring it to the US?
Phoenix: We have been fortunate enough to play Rock in Rio on a few occasions, and can’t wait to play it in Las Vegas. Rock in Rio does an awesome job at putting together some of the best festivals in the world, and I’m expecting the energy and experience to be very memorable.
Ticketmaster: Rock in Rio has partnered with Music for Relief, a nonprofit founded by Linkin Park. Can you tell us about Music for Relief and the partnership with the festival?
Phoenix: Music for Relief is a disaster relief and environmental organization that partners with artists and music fans to create positive change, and the partnership with Rock in Rio is no exception. Artists playing Rock in Rio USA are donating signed guitars for an amazing online auction. Proceeds will benefit Tree Planting in the US, refreshing areas in California that were destroyed in the Station, Stafford and Airport wildfires. Rock in Rio and Music for Relief aim to plant more than 60,000 trees to help clean the air and provide habitats for wildlife.
Ticketmaster: The festival has an incredible lineup- Metallica, No Doubt, and tons more. Who are you looking forward to seeing you’re not on stage yourself?
Phoenix: Metallica and No Doubt are great bands, and put on great shows. I’d love to get an opportunity to see both of them play. I’m also hoping to catch Of Mice & Men’s set. I love those guys.
Ticketmaster: You’ve got a number of concert dates coming up in the US and Europe. Are there any cities or venues you’re particularly excited to play?
