Epernay is one of the last dates of the tour. What is your assessment of what was "the biggest challenge of your career" as you said at the beginning of tour ?
It is true that it was a big challenge for me. Physical first with learning to do stunts, à me balader à 15 meters high. I had never done that and I'm not a daredevil at the base. It was a real work to do on myself. And then after, it was also a challenge in the sense of linking 207 the same time show. It's a bit what I feared. It has nothing to do with getting 207 times the same concert as a concert, every night is different, you can talk to people. There can not. We must rely on text and history, the same that we should tell every night. That was also the challenge. In the end, I'm super glad I did.
What were the strongest moments ?
Decidedly, the first performance. There was a huge accumulation of stress during the preparation. We were really far from ready, if only three days before the first ... The opening night, quand on a terminé le show, there was a strong feeling of having successful and have switched the machine. I would keep the first and then the last probably. Emotion, I think the last one is still a cut above.
The fact of living and herd you liked ?
Au-delà December waterfalls, physical performance, what pleased me in this adventure of Robin Hood, this is indeed the human aspect. I am someone who has always loved to share with his teams. On my tours, there is already much. This therefore made me not afraid to have an adventure like this with so many people.
What image did you have of the character Robin Hood before interpreting ?
It was first movie Kevin Costner. Ensuite BO Brian Adams, more recently the movie with Russell Crowe and then all cartoons. All references that I had were really positive. The character, the values it like me : humility, the fact to fight for others ... he is a unifying.
You've invested a lot in the project, it was deliberate ?
From the outset, when I am engaged, One of the conditions was to validate all those who would work on the project that is the director, through choreographers, singers, dancers. I wanted to manage the project as if it was one of my tours.
Your character has he changed over the representations ?
Of course the show has changed dramatically since the first. Indeed, if I could reshoot the DVD, I would now. When did, it was in 60 shows. Today, we is not far from 200 representations. The difference relative to the start ? When I go on stage, I no longer need to play the character, make the effort to get into it. I am the person. This is one of the advantages of doing the same show several times.
Are there not also the risk of a certain weariness ?
Necessarily. Today, this is especially the show itself motivates us but the fact of being together on stage, to find a different audience every night.
The end of the tour will be an opportunity to refine your next album expected in the fall ... What will be the color ?
I will come back when the album's first single in September. Willingly, I do not communicate on respect for Robin Hood. All in good time. For the time being, I prefer to stay focus on what I'm doing here, do well and then we'll see.
Also referred to you as a new member of the jury of Dancing with the Stars, this is confirmed ?
Not. It's still a rumor. If I listened to rumors, I would do lots of things ... Today, I am Robin Hood a few weeks and then after, I go on vacation !
