In this Dream Tour segment, the pop artist, Connor Mac, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
The dream tour for me came to mind very easily. All of the acts I would have perform, have been huge influences for me over the years, and to be able to see them live would be incredible…
To open the show I would have The Bros. Landreth perform. Joey and Dave Landreth are both very talented combining beautiful guitar playing with soothing and soulful vocals. They have a lot of similar influences to myself which is probably why I love their sound so much. To witness Joey’s slide playing live is something I hope I can do one day! What a talent.
Jeff Buckley would follow next. Such a rare talent who was taken too early. I would’ve loved to see him play live, especially to hear ‘Lover, You Should’ve Come Over’ in person. The song is considered a song that should never be covered as it is incredibly difficult to sing. However, Joey Landreth released a wonderful cover of it last year and definitely did it justice.
John Martyn is a newfound love of mine after being introduced to his music by a friend. His favourite album of mine, Solid Air, was released in 1973. He passed away over a decade now so watching live videos of him on Youtube will have to do… fortunately there are many great videos of him performing and he had so much stage presence even when playing solo.
And finally to headline the show, Little Feat. My all-time favourite band after my dad introduced me to them some years ago. The talent in this was band was mental. During the 70s people were listening to a lot of classic rock n roll… my dad would always say the real musicians were listening to Little Feat at that time. And the variety of music they put out over their career would make for such an interesting show! Definitely check out ‘Two Trains’, ‘Roll Um Easy’, and ‘Long Distance Love’. What a band!
It would be such a dream to see these acts back to back! There is and was so much soul poured into their music. I had a lot of fun imagining this. Unfortunately I’ll only be able to see The Bros Landreth live of all of these acts. Time to book some tickets!
