Bob Geldof Interview...

Bob Geldof is back in Ireland for a number of gigs at the end of February and he talked to yesterday.

The singer and wizard (who has even advised in the past) was in Dublin yesterday to talk about life and music.

Geldof shows off his favourite Web Site and new T-Shirt...

Are you nervous about going back on the road in Ireland?

"I'm nervous about it as I'm always nervous about playing here. It's the home team and you know the album did well here and got good reviews. The gigs have sold well so I guess I'm surprised and pleased."

Are you looking forward to playing live?

"Playing live if the thing I love doing best. This is a million miles ahead of anything else I do and is also the thing I think I am the best at."

Where do you play this time around?

"We are half a dozen shows starting in Waterford, then Wexford, Cork, Limerick, Dublin and Belfast. We wanted to do Galway but there was not a place for us to do. What I really want to do is theatres. I've got this in my head and that's why Vicar Street is perfect. It is intimate and the record that I have out now is intensively personal and I can't imagine people listening to it. I feel it's actually just for me. I need that one degree of separation you get in a theatre but I need that."

He went on, "there is a small thing between you and them and these songs are not really performed. If you listen to the record sometimes I'm barely singing. We need to be internalized they are very subjective and they will become objective."

How does it feel listening to something so personal?

"Every time I sing them or hear them it is what is conjured up inside of me again and that is not very pleasant. So I need to go inside myself again."

You are 50 now how does it feel?

"I do think I feel it but you don't think you are cause at a certain time you are no age but you don't think you are anything. You feel the life you have lived. I feel that. It's been a long fifty years."

When did you play a tour like this last?

"A long time ago but not really since the Rats. This is the most important tour in Ireland since the Rats because I've built up a body of songs, since we split, as a solo artist. I've made more albums solo then we did with the Rats. Bizarrely, they have got better reviews then the Rats did. So expect the crowd for these shows will come from people who have liked this and the last three records but I will also be doing some Rats songs if I can remember them all."
