Chatting to Kerrang! recently, Amy and Sharon excitedly revealed all about the Worlds Collide tour, agreeing that both bands complement each other extremely well.
“We feel like we have our two separate worlds, separate lives across the ocean, but in a lot of ways there are some major similarities,” considered Amy. “And to be able to bring these two worlds together for the first time just seems like a perfect match for both of us. Obviously there are differences, but you want that. You want contrast in the show but it’s cool to be able to see the similarities and embrace those, too.”
Sharon added that fans have been requesting both bands to tour together for quite some time.
“Of course, but that often happens with bands who have that overlap in fans,” she said. “They always ask to do something together but maybe they don’t think it would ever come true. It’s a special one. In the past I remember a lot of my friends getting very excited when Megadeth and Metallica did that tour together many years ago. I remember everyone was very hyped up to see two of their favourite bands together, and it’s a similar sort of thing.”
