In this Dream Tour segment, the electro pop artist, Alex Aiono, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
WASSUP DTB! I’m Alex Aiono :)
I’ve already been so lucky to share the stage with incredible artists and play in shows and festivals alongside amazing performers, but there are still so many others I’d die to play shows with. So here we go!
First off, it’s gotta be The 1975. When I was touring Europe on the FUN23 tour, my lighting director was also prepping for the upcoming 1975 tour. I remember him telling me how amazing the new show was going to be, adding to how electrifying I knew they already are live. To be able to play a tour with them would be absolutely unreal!
Next up, I’m going to have to give it to one of my favorite artists and biggest inspirations, Jon Bellion. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have been able to write with Jon and even interview him during my time as a radio host, but I unfortunately still haven’t had the chance to see him perform live! We share a tour manager and my sisters even flew out to one of his shows in the Midwest and said he is incredible. His ability to capture a crowd and conduct them like they are a part of an orchestra is unmatched. You can see it from his videos on YouTube! Jon would absolutely be a part of my dream tour.
Last, but not least! – I want to turn back the clock to my very first concert and bring back the full force of the original Black Eyed Peas! As a 9-year-old kid, I remember not being able to stop smiling as I watched this supergroup give their everything to the stage and the crowd. They performed hit after hit (including “My Humps” which was the first time I heard it because my parents wouldn’t let me listen to it at home, LOL), Their live show remains such a wonderful memory and had a major influence on me.
I don’t know about you… but a tour with The 1975, Jon Bellion, Black Eyed Peas, and myself sounds UNREAL!!! What do you think?
