The clip, filmed by the UMusic Experience, gets up close and personal with the rising star on stage and off – as he tours through Phoenix, AZ. Get a glimpse of life on the road from soundcheck to meeting fans after the show. Oh, and there’s a pretty impressive flute solo of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’.
“This is like another fucking planet from where we’re from,” he says of his time in Phoenix. Not bad for a lad from Donny.
“It’s just the same as it always have been for 30 years, and not reinventing itself,” Yungblud told NME of the state of rock in 2018. “There’s always some 70-year-old in a Def Leppard t-shirt telling me it’s not rock’n’roll because it’s not what they want. It’s about that fundamental and undeniable lack of fear to be yourself and say what you think – that’s rock’n’roll.
“Why do I want to do the same shit everyone is doing? I’m excited when I take something out of my comfort zone and influence from something I never thought I would take influence from.”
