-What do you remember about the R5 show in Buenos Aires?

Ross: Exciting, especially when we also went to Brazil and ascended to Christ the Redeemer by helicopter.

Rocky: We love Argentina. the fans are incredible and as I say this I realize I really want to be there. Luckily there is little left!

-How does it feel to reach countries where other languages ​​are spoken and fans sing the lyrics of all the songs?

Rocky: It’s wonderful, no doubt. And in this case, it would be great because we didn’t make these songs in Argentina.

Ross: The Argentine public must be one of the best public we’ve ever met.

-What can you expect from the repertoire on this tour?

Ross: I think it will be similar to the US leg of the tour, with only a few changes. Just yesterday the drummer told us that we might need to put on a long show because we weren’t in this band.

Rocky: We can do both albums in a row! It will be great and one day we should do it (laughs)

-Don’t you add cover or jam?

Ross: Intimately, despite all the shows we’ve done, we’re still not playing covers. But we’ll definitely do it soon, to provide something new on the set list on a long tour, so that it’s not always the same.

Rocky. I think in shows we have a margin of five themes that should be released or changed, because the rest are semi-immovable.

-How did you get from R5 to The Driver Era?

Ross: I think there came a point in our artistic career where we started doing things independently and we had to change our name. Drummer Ellington Ratliff and Rocky were very important at the time.

Rocky: It’s fun to remember those people, because everyone is so fast. And the R5 relies on a great production company with a lot of people around it, and we made the change from a very well-known circle and brought us here.

Ross: It happened that way, naturally, as if everyone was pointing in this direction. And the biggest motivation was that we were making music together.

-Rocky: It’s writing a new chapter. Everything that happened on R5 was fun and many fans kept coming to the shows.
