In this Dream Tour segment, the singer-songwriter, Travis Marsh, lets you know who he would like on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
I have always had a very eclectic taste of music and would love to be a part of an international tour where I could hang with some of my childhood heroes and get to know them better. Hopefully get to sit around in our tour bus city to city and get to co-write some awesome songs with them. The first touring band that came into mind was the Avett Brothers. I have been to many of their concerts and have always admired their amazing charisma on stage and their family values and the honesty that radiates from the music.
As a child, I spent countless years dissecting their divine harmonies and world-class songwriting. I feel like I would learn so much from them, just by being around them. Plus, I would love just staying up all night listening to their stories from being on the road back in the sixties.
Hands down Don Henley is one of the world’s greatest American songwriters. It would be amazing to sit and watch his magical performances in awe. Even better after the show, I would be honored to just sit and chat. Maybe pull out a guitar in the bus and write some tunes with him until the sun comes up.
I believe Freddie Mercury to be one of the greatest performers of all time. I’ve spent countless hours as a child growing up wishing that maybe just one day I could learn to sing and perform like him. It would have been an honor to have been able to know him and just be a sponge and soak up as much information as possible from him.
Seeing Roger Waters was the closest I was able to get to seeing the real Pink Floyd and the show was life changing. I would give anything to be able to watch the full original line up and just sit in awe over their amazing songs and perfect show they put on, laser lights and all. Then if I could hop on the bus with them and have a beer and pick their brain that would be a dream come true. If they would bring me onstage for the last song and all of the bands on the bill got to jam together on stage it would be a once in a lifetime moment I could never forget.
