Speaking to NME about what fans can expect from the shows, she said: “I’m thinking less in terms of digital and more in terms of practical – and I mean that in the theatre-craft sense.
“The band are so killer and at the end of a day it’s a show. In the past with what I’ve been it’s been like you might love it or might hate it but you won’t forget it. In this go-round, I want people to be like, ‘What the hell just happened to me?’ If people walk away going, ‘Oh, that was a nice show’ – then I’ve failed.”
