Damien Rice’s long lasting dream to go on tour reaching every location, concert by concert, sailing on an old wooden sailboat is now taking shape. To achieve this dream he chose to sail the italian and the spanish coasts on a raising moon summer time, selecting cities with amazing locations.
“This tour—travelling from concert to concert on an old wooden sailboat—is a dream that has been percolating under a dusty lid for over 10 years. all that mesmerising movement of sails and ropes and waves gives me the feeling of being carried into the elements on the back of a giant, mythical sea creature. it’s a place i feel deeply vulnerable, and immensely free”, says Damien.
The Wood Water Wind tour starts from Italy, the first show will being held in Zafferana Etnea (Catania), on July 15 at the Anfiteatro di Falcone e Borsellino, then Caserta is to follow on July 22 at Belvedere di San Leucio.
