New details about Helene’s mega tour |
“My muscles need to be whipped into shape”
This tour is set to surpass anything she’s done on stage before.
super star Helene Fischer (38) presented their new, big tour in Cologne on Wednesday, which will run from March to October 2023 and will include 70 concerts. The project was created again with the Cirque du Soleil, with whom Helene had already realized her previous tour.
Music, magic, dance and artistry are again in the foreground. 40 musicians, dancers and artists are involved. A pool of water and a ring of fire were produced for the tour, among other visual elements.
Helene came to the press conference in a red sweater, tight black trousers and stylish black and gold shoes. Relaxed, the singer took a seat on the podium and answered the questions.
She raves about the tour: “We want to create something really big and magical and take the audience away from their everyday lives.”
The realization of the project takes 18 months. Around 120 tailor-made costumes and 130 pairs of shoes were designed and manufactured for the show, and spectacular outfits were designed for Helene.
She herself will start the hot preparation phase in autumn. She says: “I have to bring myself to a completely new level of fitness, which of course also involves pain at the beginning. Especially for the numbers in the air, the upper body has to be trained and the muscles whipped into shape.”
Her acrobatic feats in the air never look harmless. Isn’t she scared? “I think you have to get rid of your fears. But you shouldn’t be reckless either. Of course I am secured.”
Isn’t 70 shows too much? In Cologne alone there are seven in a row. Helene: “I didn’t even think about the number of shows. Whether ten or six – the main thing is that I have a few days off afterwards.”
