At Monday’s (June 5) rehearsals, he said he’s never staged such a grand entrance in all of his career.
“We’ve got this incredible drum line,” he said. “I don’t know how many there are, but there are a lot of them. And it’s very crazy to run all the way from one side of the stage to the other stage and still sing all these words. It’s just a unique way to perform this song.
“Fans can expect the equivalent of how crazy this song is with the performance. It starts with a launch to say the least.”
