In this Dream Tour segment, the southern rock artist, BJ Wilbanks, lets you know who he would like on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
So, I wanted to go for something that is actually possible here, because a number of the artists or bands I love are broken up or have passed away.
I’d say my dream tour would be with The Black Keys, JJ Grey and Mofro, Patrick Sweany, The Wood Brothers, Chris Stapleton, Anderson East, and The Alabama Shakes. I feel like this would be a good blend of amazing music and if you haven’t heard of some of these bands, go check them out. I’m sure a lot of these musicians already actually play together anyway, so it may be possible one day make it come true.
Yet, really it all depends on what I feel like playing. The music I do is so all over the place, I’d love to get an even funkier blend of musicians, so here’s my weirdest dream tour line up: Dr. Dog, Sturgill Simpson, The Strokes, Al Green, Bill Withers, Tedeski Trucks Band, Bosley, Outkast, Vetiver, Anderson .Paak, Bahamas.
I feel like the best concerts, just like the best music, brings people of all walks of life together. It’d be amazing to see the blend of people at these shows.
Again, these are some of my favorite musicians, so I’d be floored just to be at a show like this. To be able to play on the same stage would probably cause me to totally dork out and make my mind explode. Hopefully, I will make it a reality some day.
