In this Dream Tour segment, the adult contemporary artist, Oli-J, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
My dream tour would be such a blast! I would defiantly have to score with Freddie Mercury headline my show because, why not? His energy is what everyone needs, and I will join him on stage for a song together and we will kill it! He is most certainly a big inspiration for my music and the way I am starting to perform as an artist. So, to have him would be a dream.
If I am wanting to keep it vibey, Snoh Allegra is a must paired with another favorite. Sade. I love moody music that touches the soul. It really gets the mind to think about the message of the music as you are drifting away into a milky way of smooth vibrations. It would be a dream to make music with either one of them much more than a tour. To be around their presence and gain knowledge would please my soul.
Finally, Prince! If I was to be on tour with him, I wouldn’t even need a band. His profound wisdom of music is enough. He would just need to talk about a chord, and you would have heard a whole song from that sentence along. I would sing so many songs with him from his Art Official Age album, which is my favorite by him. I would watch the audience be stunned from the sheer joy of the way he would play his guitar! If only I’d gotten the chance to truly make that happen.
I know my choices of artists feels kind of everywhere but that’s how my music is, to be honest. I am inspired by so many sounds that I don’t have just one main sound. If I do, it’s because I hear everything from everything and I create one thing to make something that people don’t normally hear which is beautiful and me. My tour would be a combination of artists like these and so much more to bring the audience something different.
