The Legendary Tigerman (Paulo Furtado) begins a new tour in Guarda this month, in auditoriums, which will be “much more electronic”, but without losing the ‘rock and roll’, ‘punk’ and “the usual energy”.

On the tour to present “Zeitgeist”, an album released in September, Paulo Furtado is performing with a new line-up of bands.

“There’s a new person joining the band, Sara Badalo, who sings splendidly,” the musician told Lusa. The singer made her live debut with The Legendary Tigerman in November, at the Super Bock em Stock festival at the Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon.

In addition to Sara Badalo, Paulo Furtado on synthesizers and guitar, Cabrita on saxophone and keys, Filipe Rocha on bass and synthesizers and Mike Ghost on drums will also be on stage.

“There’s a lot more electronics live. You don’t lose the ‘rock and roll’, or the punk, or the usual energy, but there are things that don’t have guitars, for example. There will also be a completely new light show. And there’s new video material too,” he revealed.

The tour begins on January 27 in Guarda, at the Municipal Theatre, and then passes through Arcos de Valdevez (February 3 at the Sons de Vez festival), Guimarães (February 24 at the Vila Flor Cultural Center), Coimbra (March 8 at the Gil Vicente Academic Theatre), Tomar (March 16 at the Cineteatro Paraíso) and Porto (March 23 at the Hard Club).

“There’s a new wave of auditoriums announced now and many that are being booked throughout the year. And then, of course, there are bigger festivals and international concerts,” said Paulo Furtado.

Two concerts in France have already been scheduled for May, on the 25th and 29th, in La Roche-sur-Yon and Paris respectively.

The musician also plans to play dates in Spain and Germany, at least, and revealed that “a tour of Brazil is being negotiated”, a country where he loves to play.

“It’s something I’m very excited about, because Brazilian audiences are very spontaneous and I really enjoy playing there,” he shared.
