Till on his stage fright.
RH: You have a reputation for being shy. Is it always so painful for you to go out on stage?
Till: Yes. “Excruciating” is not an exaggeration. But now things are improving, I’m more used to the stage. Though I always worry about the concert. And what I do not like - thank God, it happens less and less often - is performing in small clubs: the audience is so close, it looks at you from head to toe, I feel like a victim of voyeurs who can see the fear oozing from the pores in my skin.
