It’s not every day you get asked to go on tour with an artist you admired growing up. Adam, who drums for British band Lawson, recently headed out across Australia supporting Robbie Williams on tour. We caught up with him via the dog and bone to find out more!
So you’re touring Australia right now with Robbie Williams. How’s that going? It’s going absolutely amazingly. We’re in Melbourne at the moment and so far we’ve done Brisbane, Adelaide, and the shows have been incredible, and Robbie himself. He’s such a nice guy. We’ve been having FIFA tournaments and the first day we got to Perth he came into our dressing room and had a half hour chat with us, and you don’t usually get that treatment from somebody when you’re supporting them. It’s really been an absolutely amazing experience.

Where’s been the best so far? Brisbane’s been the best so far but I reckon Melbourne’s going to take the crown. We’ve got three nights at the Rod Lavern Arena where they do the Australian Open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and they’re all sold out, so I reckon that’s going to top it.
How are you finding the fans when you’re opening the shows? It’s great because obviously we’re not that big over in Australia so there are 15,000 people there a night and the majority of them haven’t heard of us so it’s almost like a festival set where you’ve got to win the crowd over. You can feel them song by song getting more into it and by the end of the set they’re really into it so it’s great to see the progression.
