IDLES frontman Joe Talbot has confirmed that he has signed up with agents Toura Toura Ltd to partake in a series of ‘In Conversation with’ tours which will involve Talbot being interviewed live all about his career within the music industry with such special guest hosts to include Clint Boon from Inspiral Carpets and Creation Records founder Alan McGee.
The night will be split into three parts. There will be the live interview on stage where Talbot will be questioned about his life, loves and influences by the special guest host. Interestingly, the audience will then also get an opportunity to put forward their own questions to the IDLES front man and there will also be musical support from some great new bands. Giving them an amazing opportunity to perform in front of such highly regarded industry figureheads as well.
These series of QnA interviews are masterminded by Kevin Fitzgrald of Toura Toura Ltd and are proving hugely popular. Previously featured stars include other music industry royalty such as Alan Mcgee and Shaun Ryder from the Happy Mondays.
