In this Dream Tour segment, Max Kerman of the rock ‘n roll band, Arkells, lets you know who he would like on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
Chance the Rapper, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, and Arkells. After party by Arcade Fire.
I love Chance and Bruce Springsteen for the same reasons: they are heartfelt and passionate. They’re great storytellers and funny. They’re also sneaky great physical performers. I think about them all the time when I’m working on tunes and our live shows. The vibe at the show would be so fun, and plenty of room for collaboration.
I would have Beyonce close the show because she would put the rest of us to shame. She has my jaw on the ground every time I see her perform. Her production is so top notch. She is an inspiration for every singer, dancer, feminist, and entertainer out there.
I would also add an afterparty component, and it would feature Arcade Fire. They’re one of my favourite bands and versatile enough to play anywhere. They’ve been bringing up special guests every night on their latest tour, and I would have them curate guest singers so that it turns in to a sweaty disco until the early hours of the morning.
