Rizzle Kicks Talk Weird Fan Gigs & Jordan Doing A Whole Gig In His Pajamas
'It was actually quite liberating...'
Rizzle Kicks' latest single 'Always Late' is written from experience - Jordan and Harley are literally always late for things and it turns out, when they're not turning up for their best friends' wedding, other times it can be pretty funny. Like the time Jordan wasn't quite ready for a gig and got locked out of his own tour bus!
The duo head on tour on the end of the year, and when we asked them what's some of the funniest things that have happened while they've been on the road before, Jordan grinned as he remembered this nugget:
"One of my favourite moments was when we were doing a gig at Lowlands Festival in Holland and I went to the toilet before stage. But then the bus got locked, but I went to the toilet in my pyjamas so I performed the whole set in my pyjamas which was actually quite liberating actually. One of the best gigs I've ever done!"
We'd been chatting to the 'Mama Do The Hump' hitmakers when they came in recently to play Truth Or Dare with Zac Fox on Facebook (yes, we're twelve), and while we had them they also told us about some weird stuff fans have sent them...
"We've had a few super fans yeah," Harley told us, "but our fans are generally quite chilled."
Jordan recalled: "I've had a fan make me an apple pie before. That was pretty iffy. Like, it was cool, it was at a signing for our second album but I was like 'I'm definitely not eating that, there's now way.' You never know!
"I didn't [try any of it]. I was tempted though - food's food you know what I mean?! Who am I to throw away an apple pie? But I did. I threw it away."
And creepiest of all, Harley revealed: "A girl made dolls of us..."
"That was cool though," Jordan added. "…she said it took 23 hours each, for each doll - or maybe for the both of them..."
We'd have eaten the pie. Just sayin'.
