Texas to give concert in Skopje on Friday


One of UK’s leading pop-rock bands, Texas will give a concert in the capital Skopje on Friday.

The coming concert was rescheduled on Sept. 28 after Texas was forced to cancel their concert in June as part of the Skopje Calling festival organized by Avalon Production.

Texas will perform songs from their greatest hits album as well as from their latest LP ‘Jump on Board’, released in 2017.

Lead singer Sharleen Spiteri held a news conference Wednesday in which she said it was her first time in Macedonia and hopefully not the last. When asked if she had heard about Macedonia before, Spiteri revealed she had heard the name at the Eurovision Song Contest and though it was cute.

Asked if she wanted to know more about the places she visited, Spiteri answered that she liked to get to know local people, to ask them for recommendations about what to do, what to see and what to visit.

Spiteri said she kept her private life for herself and that she always gave her all when on stage or off.

One of their biggest hits that heralded the band’s 30+ career ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’ was the first song ever written by Johnny McElhone and herself, Spiteri revealed.

“Even today, as a 50-year old woman I share the same belief that I don’t want a lover and I don’t want a friend. I want it all, the whole package,” the ever-charming and down-to-earth Sharleen Spiteri told reporters in Skopje.

Formed in 1986 in Glasgow by Spiteri and McElhone, Texas has released nine studio album that have sold over 40 million copes around the globe.

Macedonian pop-rock band Area will be the supporting act for Texas in Skopje.
