Actros on-tour: The BossHoss around Germany in their Saloon Truck
The tractor unit has received its own BossHoss styling. In the latest video and our photo gallery, you can see how a semitrailer was transformed into an incredible western saloon on wheels. In these befittingly cool surroundings, The BossHoss will be playing some intimate concerts as part of their exclusive fan tour.
Berlin-based country-rock group present their new single “AYO” from their latest album “Black Is Beautiful” live as part of an exclusive fan tour in their pimped Western truck!
Welcome to the mobile rock 'n' roll saloon! After The BossHoss released their latest summer hit "AYO", the Berlin-based cowboys will be bringing out their most modern, multifaceted and exciting album yet: “Black Is Beautiful” on 26.10.
From 15.10, Sascha Vollmer and Alec Völkel will be touring Germany in their band's truck which has been suitably converted into a Western saloon for the occasion – on-tour, the pair will play their new songs to a hand-picked group of fans ahead of the official release date. This is absolutely unique worldwide – nothing like this has ever been done before!
During the exclusive acoustic sets in the band's own 612-horsepower bad-ass truck, selected The BossHoss fans will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience – discovering the tracks from the upcoming album “Black Is Beautiful” together with their best friends in the exclusive, intimate surroundings before anyone else. The power of rock 'n' roll in an authentic live club atmosphere, up-close and in person! Tickets to this spectacular live stunt will be up for grabs from participating radio stations and cannot be obtained in any other way.
“We were totally taken aback by our previous promo tour where we just spontaneously played on various market squares without prior notice,” explains Alec Völkel. “This time around, we've come up with something totally unique and exclusive: we're inviting our biggest fans to our The BossHoss Saloon, where they'll be able to enjoy a small-scale private concert that they'll surely never forget. We're already really excited about these gigs!”
The cherry on the cake of this promotional campaign is that the The BossHoss will play live on the release day of the album (26.10.) to a home audience in Berlin with over 500 media representatives, influencers, fans, friends and family. What's more, this special showcase will be broadcast online via a live stream.
On their 8th studio album, The BossHoss's volatile signature sound of rock, country, blues, a dash of hip-hop and pop has been supplemented by some completely new elements. On the German music scene, The BossHoss manages to shift with absolutely unprecedented ease and naturalness between the various music worlds. Instead of thinking in boxes, the band has long since established its own genre. “Black Is Beautiful” is next-level rock.
Around the time of the “Black Is Beautiful” release, Boss Burns and Hoss Power can be seen from December onwards as judges on “The Voice Senior” (on German TV channel Sat.1). In March 2019, the band will set off on their biggest stadium tour to date, covering Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
