Singer opens up about the electro pop duo's bizarre Eastern European tour experiences
Hurts singer Theo Hutchraft has revealed how a fan recently gave the band pig fat during their European tour.
The frontman said the strange gesture was just one of a series of bizarre items fans have bestowed on the band. He told The Sun:
The fans in Eastern Europe don’t mess about. In Kiev, they brought us pig fat, our own Russian dolls and handmade clocks. One of them painted a full watercolour of Adam [Anderson] playing a piano. It can be a bit dark sometimes but it’s flattering.
They are set to release a deluxe edition of their 2010 debut ‘Happiness’ next Monday (October 31). The release features a series of rare unreleased tracks and a DVD featuring a recent live concert from Berlin.
Hurts are set to play a two shows in the UK next week wrapping up at Brixton Academy on November 4. To check availability of Hurts tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
