In this Dream Tour segment, the pop punk artist, Caroline Romano, reveals who she would want on her ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
When I think of my dream tour lineup, the first name to always come to mind is the king of Queen himself.
Freddie Mercury’s effortless ability to command a stage would be nothing less than an extraterrestrial experience. He is the blueprint for stage presence. I believe Freddie was the definition of what it means to be an artist, and he has impacted my life and career in more ways than I can articulate.
There is this distinct, yet unplaceable feeling you get from watching him on stage. Even through a screen, it grabs you, like some sort of electrical humidity. When performing, Freddie was able to make you feel everything he intended for you to feel with Queen’s music. If I am one day only half the performer he was, I will be more than happy. Freddie Mercury is definitely at the top of my dream tour lineup, as I would just love to watch him be the prodigy that he was.
Also on my dream tour lineup would be Yungblud. Yungblud is another artist who has shaped my life and career in more ways than I can count, and it will always be a life goal of mine to work with him in any capacity someday. If you look up energy in the dictionary, it’s a picture of Yungblud. I’ve had the privilege of seeing him perform, and I truly have never seen a performance like his in all my life.
He never stops moving, yelling, or interacting while on stage. He never stops, even for one second, feeling the music.
For me, Yungblud represents the misunderstood and awkward youth that grows up to do great things. His music has pulled me out of my lows and carried me through my highs. I want my music to do for others what his has done for me in my life.
In conclusion, I think my dream tour lineup consists of those oddity artists who were simply born to be on stage. From Freddie to Yungblud, I’d want to be a part of a tour that spoke to the misunderstood. I’d want to share that electricity I feel when performing with the crowd of people in front of me, alongside artists who can do an even better job of it than I can. It would be a tour of artists who catered to the weirdos out there because that’s what we are ourselves.
