THEM Skates is headed to the UK in little under a month to promote the release of the heavily anticipated 909 boot. The team will be stopping off in Manchester February 8th and London February 9th. Tickets are available on www.myticket.co.uk and www.locoskates.com.
Over the next few weeks, Be-Mag will be interviewing everyone on the THEM 909 UK tour, getting to know their experiences in Britain, favorite parts of Brit culture, and what tour life means to them.
I landed at Heathrow hours after the 7/7 bombings. I was stranded there with no clue as to what was happening in the city or who was picking me up. Eight hours or so later, someone came and we went to the Nass Festival. Maybe not favorite but it’s definitely memorable.
A more positive memory was my most recent trip. Adam Kola and Ollie Baker brought me over to film a part for The Booted with Ryan Gillett. Lots of laughs in London.
If you find the time to go sightseeing, where would you want to visit?
Big Ben. Take a selfie with a guard. Walk across the Millennium Bridge, what a rush!
What are you most looking forward to on this trip?
Seeing and skating with everyone. I haven’t been to England in a while, so I’m just excited to be there.
Do you collect certain knickknacks when you visit a new place?
I don’t think so.
If you had to choose a theme song for this tour, what would it be?
