On July 4, Kevin Costner and his country/rock band, Modern West, performed outside of a 13th century Italian cathedral. Why? Because life is short!
“You don’t want to get to the end and go, ‘I could’ve done that.’ I’d better be doing things that I love,” Kevin exclusively tells Closer Weekly.
He says the tour has given him the chance to connect with fans on a more personal level.
“There was no plan for this band, and it wasn’t some kind of career move,” he admits to Closer of the group's start in 2007.
“I just found myself making a movie in a place for two or three months and going, ‘I have no interaction with these communities except for autographs and pictures. Now I can go into a club once or twice before I leave, do what I want and converse.’”
The band played at Orvieto4Ever, an event honoring America in Orvieto, Italy. “We’ve now played around the world,” Kevin shares. “We’ve played the Kremlin!”
