In this Crazy Tour Stories segment, the singer-songwriter, Tim Schou, talks about some of his crazy moments from touring. You can check out the feature, after the break.
I’m on tour with the Backstreet Boys, supporting their Arena tour all around Europe.
Now you would think there’d be a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock ’n roll going on on a tour like that, but besides the fact that every member each had their own massive tour bus, it was a pretty mellow and good boys tour, nothing wild happening. In fact, it happened to be myself, the support act, making sure there’d be at least a little rock ’n roll going on.
I had invited my, at that time, girlfriend out to London, where we were playing the O2 Arena. We hadn’t seen each other for a while, and everyone who’s been on the road knows how lonely it can get. After the show, we went up to my tour bus and my band gave us some privacy and left us with the whole place to ourselves.
We quickly winded up kissing and making out standing in the aisle of the bus, knowing we had to be quiet since the BSB crew was right next to the bus, but luckily the windows were all tinted, at least we thought they were.
Things heat up and we start getting it on close up the window.
The bus is bouncing back and forth, when my girlfriend opens her eyes and look through the tinted windows, not so tinted after all, and sees 25 crew members from the Backstreet Boys standing outside all grouped up and tongue out like dogs.
Girlfriend and I, quickly and embarrassed, back away from the window and put on our clothes.
Not sure if they really saw everything that night, but next morning, I go down to the breakfast room to get my morning coffee and everybody applauds me right there as if I had won the super bowl. They saw everything.
Quite surprised and a little disappointed, that that’s all the action they be getting on a Backstreet Boys Tour; The support act getting it on with his girlfriend in the tour bus.
Oh well, a fun memory from a fun and amazing arena tour.
