I’m never really interested in talking to band coming to China… I’d much rather talk to them after they’ve been here to hear their about their experience and thoughts. Unfortunately, very few bands take the time to sit down post promo and open up about all the stuff they’ve seen or heard.
It was refreshing and enlightening to see Cowboy Junkies, fresh off their Kama Love Festival show, put up a whole blog post about their Beijing experience, behind the scene.
my favorite quote is the most realistic one as far as what bands should expect when they come to China for the first time:
I don’t think our appearance will result in Cowboy Fan streaking up the pop charts in China but we hope that it will lead to a return to this country and a proper tour to half a dozen or so cities.
Cool beans and enlightening post!
