In this Tour Pranks segment, the metal band, Skindred, share a prank from the road. You can read their story, after the break.
We have a tradition of fucking with the support bands on the final night of a tour. Not in any really brutal way, but on stage in their set. For example; putting chilli powder on the microphones and filling their water bottles with cheap gin, so when they try and lessen the burn they get that sweet, sweet warm neat gin taste. This combined with getting the lighting guy on side to use just strobes for the first three songs, taping the frets on their guitars, taping the drum sticks together, talcum powder in the hi hats, pelting them with water during the set and taking the drums away cymbal by cymbal during their last song leads to a panicked first few minutes. It’s always in jest though and they see the funny side. On our last Europe tour, our guitar tech took it to the next level of walking on stage mid song in his underwear and a breaking bad mask, ordered the band off stage and performed a bass solo.
