Tour Diary: Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters



“A band is just the sum of its parts. Without Ana, Scissor Sisters wouldn’t amount to half of what we are. I don’t think I would like fronting a band by myself. Both of us love to connect with the audiences in pretty different ways. Ana can talk a blue streak and instantly make people feel comfortable. Whereas I’ve gotten older, I’ve become shyer when speaking to the crowds. It’s really embarrassing because sometimes I get super emotional on stage if I try to talk. One of my favorite moments ever with Ana on stage was the day that Donna Summer died. Her tribute to her that night was one of the most moving things I’ve ever heard. I think her wild ability to eloquently interact with the people that come to our shows is what makes what we do such a communal experience.”
