They are among the most popular bands in Germany, but Silbermond was also hit hard by the Corona crisis. In an interview with t-online, Stefanie Kloß and her boys reviewed the last year and a half.
Stefanie Kloß used to sing, “And I fight my way through the night”. Currently Silbermond could update the song to “And I fight my way through the pandemic” because the cultural scene, in particular, was struck. Tours? Nothing. At least individual concerts? No. Not even at a distance? Rarely and maybe soon, but not for a long time.
And yet the band remains positive, now celebrating what some people currently don’t feel that way. Namely: “Best Life”. But under this, you might imagine something different today than at the end of 2019, as Silbermond admits in an interview.
You have often spoken out in favor of politicians doing more for the cultural sector. One has the impression that little has happened there. Looking ahead: The first concerts are going on again in the USA and England, and here too there are one or two announcements. What are your hopes for the second half of the year?
Silbermond: Our hearts bled when we had to postpone the concerts from 2020 to 2021 and this year again to 2022. Many artists are doing smaller gigs this year, and we’re delighted that things are finally going on and the machine is up and running again. Our great hope for the second half of the year is a unique live special, the “birthday concert” on October 30th, 21st in the Columbiahalle in Berlin. However, we announced that two years ago.
