Dream Machine Tour – Part 3 (April 2017)

April 01: Leipzig, Germany  – Haus Auensee



  • Q&A

They are shooting two new music videos in May, and there’s going to be a new single as well.

Someone asked when and where they came up with ‘Cotton Candy Sky’ and what was the creative process behind it. Bill said that they were together in LA and were kind of drunk. The song is meant to remind ourselves of the feeling you get after. Tom said that it is like when you know you did a lot and it was great, but that now the sun is back.

They could imagine a movie based on their book. Bill would love to. But since there will be two versions of the book, Bill imagine shooting two movies. David Kross would be in his role, and Georg thinks Johnny Depp would be great in Tom’s role.

They think their songs from their earliest albums are too childish now and do not represent who they are today.

If they had to introduce their band to someone only with five songs, they would pick ‘Monsoon’, ‘Don’t Jump’, ‘Automatic’, ‘Love who loves you back’ and ‘Stop, Babe’.

Bill usually writes the lyrics after the melody. For example, there are six different versions of Easy.

Gustav said he only does the wave at the end of a concert if he’s in the right mood.

They’re planning on visiting Marrakesh.

Someone asked them what are their biggest “What ifs”. They had to think a lot about this and Tom finally said: “What if we hadn’t met our stepfather?”

Tom said he doesn’t like people buying pets; he prefers adopting.

Bill’s mermaid tattoo is about love. It’s about pure love without gender or differences.

After shows, they debrief with the crew and say what went well and what didn’t. Team point of view : the band is very professional and a little bit authoritarian; they know what they want to do.

It took almost a year to build the stage.

They talked about reality show. Tom would like to be in the Bachelor, and Bill in Punk’d.

They would love to go to Burning Man, but they still prefer Coachella.

April 03: Prague, Czech Republic – SaSaZu


  • Q&A

Bill said he’s not afraid of getting old. He likes wrinkles and grey hair, he likes being old and getting older feels good. He also said that he is not afraid of dying and there are days when he thinks he could die and that would be fine, because his life is good and he’s been through a lot of amazing things and he has lived a good life and he is not afraid of getting old and dying. They also said that it is basically what ‘as young as we are’ is about, that it is the meaning of the song. Georg added that everything they’ve been through lead them to this moment and they wouldn’t be here so he has no regrets and he wouldn’t change anything that has happened in his life, because thanks to this they are all where they are now.

Moreover, Bill said that the twin book will be released between winter of this year and spring next year.

During the show, Bill introduced “Better” saying “This song saved me and I think it also saved Tom a little bit.”


April 07: Oslo, Norway – Sentrum Scene


  • Q&A

A fan asked them a question concerning her problems with her boyfriend. Bill said that if he doesn’t make her happier, then she shouldn’t stay with him. He said he kind of had the same problem in his past relationships. The girl said she wouldn’t leave him because she loves him too much. So Tom said that he believes 1000% that time will heal everything, so she doesn’t have to worry about if it will break her or his heart because time will always heal everything.

They said that they think they’ve found their sound and it won’t change anymore.

Bill’s favourite tattoo is the boxer, Tom’s are the dots on his hand.

They were asked about their favourite German bands: Annen May Kantereit, Clueso, Bosse, Großstadtgeflüster, Nisse

Bill and Tom said American cake sucks and their grandma makes the best one.

Bill, Tomm and Georg said they can speak Italian, then demonstrated with pasta dishes & coffee drinks. Georg added hand gestures.

April 09: Helsinki, Finland – The Circus


  • Q&A

They said that they might add some European dates on the next part of the tour.

The North American tour will be in Fall/Winter.

Tom played a lot on Assassin’s Creed computer game.

Bill said that he works a lot and is the most creative when he’s sad, but when he’s happy and in love, he has other things to do.

They talked about how they choose different countries to go to, and that the reason they didn’t go to Denmark was because the venue they wanted wasn’t available at the time they would have liked the concert to be. They also added that the route must make sense, they can’t go back and forth, so Denmark didn’t work this time.

About the stage, their first sketches were nothing like the result. They presented their idea to their team and then their lighting people told them what they thought and presented their own ideas and then they all worked out the final result.

Gustav’s wedding was really nice, with fireworks. Bill liked Gustav’s wedding because he could wear nice clothes there. Bill said that he wants to get married in the Maldives, but in the end his suit will depend on where he gets married; he wants to wear a custom-made creme coloured suit from Dior or Ralph Lauren. All the boys think that Georg should get married soon.

Bill’s earliest childhood memory is getting a tiny vacuum cleaner as a Christmas present.

They guys think Finland’s cold and Bill said he wants to go to Thailand.

Their favourite pizza is Margherita. Bill also said that he could eat curly fries every day.

They were on a cruise the day before, and they said everyone on board was drunk and dancing to very bad music.

If they had a blog, Bill said his would be about fashion, Georg said his would be about travels. Then they said they could all test hotels.

A fan gave this book to the band:

April 10: Riga, Latvia – Studio 69


  • Q&A

Fans gave a bottle of Jack Daniel’s to Gustav and he was so happy about it. Another person had a present for Tom’s dog, a supplement that makes walking easier and less painful.

Tom used to do his dreads by himself, because when someone did it to him the first time, he went swimming and then they were gone.

They will announce new tour dates at the end of the month, or next month.

If ruling a country for a day, Georg would change the school system and Tom would forbid stuff like zoos and circus.

Bill is more spontaneous than Tom.

According to them, sexy professions are stewardess, politician and lawyer.

After Coachella, Bill woke up with bruises, fully dressed with his backpack on and didn’t know what had happened the night before. Tom said they went to the pool, but Bill doesn’t remember.

Bill likes champagne, tequila and whisky the most, but he hates vodka.

April 12: Warsaw, Poland – Progresja Music Zone


  • Q&A

Tom said that Robert Lewandowski (soccer) is his hero.

Bill said the show in Warsaw was the best of the tour.

They talked about weird dreams they’ve had. Georg said that when they were in Italy, he had a dream in which he was with Angela Merkel. He said it was awesome. A fan said that Merkel isn’t so cool and Bill argued and said they all love Merkel. Gustav joked, saying: “no photo for you tonight”.

If they had only one wish, Bill would ask for another million wishes.

Bill’s role models are Davie Bowie, Robyn, Britney Spears, Cher, etc.

Tom would like to know what music their fans listen to.

After a heartbreak, they usually party a lot.

When the person they fancy is right in front of him, Bill says he’s very awkward and Tom always tries to help him or makes fun of him, but that doesn’t work because Bill just blushes because he’s too shy.

They are going at a spa in Italy before the Russian leg of the tour starts.

They were asked why they do not sing in German anymore; they said they don’t want to.

Describing the tour in one word, Bill said ‘dreamy’ and Tom and Gustav said ‘special’.
