    Thanks

    The Conversation tour is now over. And what a tour it was.
    The fans were happy that after a couple of years of festivals the band decided to release a new album and tour to follow that release. Sharleen's voice is better then ever and the friendship between the band members reflected on stage as never before.
    So I would like to say thank you to the band, for those amazing concerts, for two months of fun and music. Thank you also for making the time for your fans, we really appreciate that. Thank you for introducing the fantastic Girl Called Johnny to us all, I'm sure we will hear more about them. And also thank you to the entire entourage; management, record company, sound and light people, roadies, ... and of course to all the fans who have become friends, friendships which don't need to be described, which are impossible to describe actually ;-)

    Merchandise

    The Texas merchandise which was for sale on the Conversation tour, can now be purchased online also.
    So it's not too late to get your Texas T-shirts, hoodie or other stuff.
    Just go to The Texas Official Merchandise shop and start shopping :-)

    Tour almost over

    The last concerts of the Conversation tour are coming up. On Thursday and Friday Sharleen and her boys will finish this amazing tour in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Hopefully you all got a chance to see the band. I'm sure you don't regret it :-)

    If you still didn't have enough then maybe you can get a hold of the Real Radio event in Sheffield on December 5th, where Texas will perform. And another chance is the acoustic set that Texas will play in Brussels, Belgium on December 18 for Music For Life.

    Of course we will keep you up to date in the next couple of months also. I got tons of old videos to post also, so maybe now I will get a chance ;-)

    Dry Your Eyes video

    The third single from "The Conversation" album, ‘Dry Your Eyes’ is out now. The accompanying video continues the great Texas tradition of eye-catching storylines and unusual cameos with This Is England’s Vicky McLure and Lip Services’ Ruta Gedmintas taking the starring roles alongside Sharleen in a pub scene. Vicky joins the likes of Alan Rickman, Jean Reno and Peter Mullan as Texas video guest stars. Sharleen goes on to explain “It was a pleasure working with Vicky and Ruta as they're such great actresses and good friends of mine so the whole day was easy and enjoyable. Tto be honest when you're in a pub having a drink with your mates it feels more like a night out than a day at work. I thought we were genius at acting drunk!! “.

    The second single from "The Conversation" album is "Detroit City". Sharleen went to Detroit to record this magnificent clip. Have a look here.

    The Conversation video clip


    The video clip for "The Conversation" has been released now. You can see Sharleen Spiteri walking with acclaimed Scottish actor Peter Mullan.
    The video for the song, which was shot in Paris, was also directed by the group.

    During the shooting of the video in Paris, Sharleen maybe a pretty heavy fall on her face and had to be taken to the hospital. Luckely without too many injuries.
