Soulfly UK Tour Update
Posted on February 12, 2008Bring It.. to Wolverhampton and London. "No more motherfuckin Hootie and the Blowfish," shouts Max. It is July 11th, the aftermath. The previous 2 nights have seen Soulfly play shows in Wolverhampton and London.. their first UK shows since Roy rejoined the band and new album '3' was released. Much of the daytime pre-show was spent doing various interviews, although in London most of the band managed to sneak off for a couple hours shopping around the local areas... those queueing round the side of the Kentish Town Forum may have seen Mikey & co return with an assortment of bags! What else? After hanging out with some Roadrunner teamers, the band & crew retire to the tourbus, where we discover that Marcelo and Mikey are big Ali G fans, throwing out a few "booyakashas" themselves while watching Ali G videos.... to a soundtrack of AC/DC. "Angus Young is the King!" exclaims Mikey, with a look defying anyone to disagree. Despite a few technical hiccups preventing Roy from hearing much music during the set in Wolverhampton, Marcelo says the both shows were "fuckin' amazing! The whole place was jumping, everywhere you looked everyone was bouncing!" They brush off the problems stating, "that's just a real rock 'n' roll show..." London's set list involved: Downstroy, Seek n Strike, No Hope = No Fear, Jump Da Fuck Up/Bring It, Roots, Beriumbau/Tribe, Attitude, Tree Of Pain (with guest appearance by Richie, Dana's brother), Refuse, Last Of The Mohicans, Fire/Umba (drums), Quilombo, Back To The Primitive, No, and Eye For An Eye. All too soon the show is over and the crew are loading out... straight after, the band are driving through the night to Paris.. leaving us with promises to return later in the year.
H82K2 tour with Slayer Soulfly are soon to hit the road with Slayer and In Flames across the USA & Canada - the tour runs from August 3 into September!
