Twin Shadow to embark on 'storytelling tour' with his father

07 February 2013, 19:29 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Twin Shadow has announced a new tour where the support act will be either him or his father telling the audience a story.

The musician, otherwise known as George Lewis Jr, explained a little about the bizarre concept he’s calling the ‘True Story Tour’:

“You know when someone tells a story and says “crazier things have happened!” Well, you always wish they would just tell you that crazier thing. Like, why would you want to hear a story that’s not as good? My father told me great stories my whole life, I often wonder if his stories influenced the way I write music. When talk came up of Twin Shadow hitting the road this year I thought again about how we could make each show special, how each city could have a unique piece of Twin Shadow. I thought about my father’s stories, I thought about the stories I tell my friends and I thought this tour would be a good place to share them, so for every city we play my father or myself will tell you one True Story. 24 Cities. 24 Stories. A story for New York, A story for Toronto, A Story for every show on the tour.”

We’re hoping there’ll actually be some music too. We’re sure there will…
