The Bacon Brothers are rolling through Charlotte on Monday as part of a short summer tour, and their mode of transportation may surprise you.
“I just take my G4 and fly wherever I need to,” the younger Bacon says.
This seems plausible, considering he’s had plum roles in the blockbuster movies “Apollo 13” and “X-Men: First Class,” and currently stars in the Fox TV drama “The Following.”
But: “That’s a joke. I’m kidding,” says Kevin Bacon, 56. “I don’t actually have a G4.”
He and brother Michael, 64, are traveling this month to shows in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio and New York by bus – along with the four other guys who comprise the rock band they started with bassist Paul Guzzone 19 years ago.
We spoke with Michael (a musician for more than four decades) and Kevin (an actor for about as long) about that bus, their creative process and the challenges of having a Hollywood star in your band.
