When Tom DeLonge shoots for the stars, he really means it.
DeLonge told Billboard.com that his band Angels and Airwaves will be teaming up with NASA during their upcoming fall tour. “I’m working on doing some incredible things with them and incorporating NASA’s technologies into our show,” Delonge said. “I think people will be wowed with what I have in mind. Hopefully I can pull it off.”
DeLonge has 24 other partners in mind for the tour.
And that’s not all the band has on its plate: a documentary about the formation of Angels and Airwaves entitled “Start The Machine” has already been submitted to several film festivals and will be released in theatres in 2008.
Of the doc, DeLonge said that “We started out making this documentary about the making of the record, and so much more happened. I told (director Todd Fjelsted), ‘Dude, just make it true and make it real and don’t let me come in there and edit you at all.’ I saw it the first time … and I’m like, ‘Jesus Christ, look at me. I’m crazy!’”
