In this Dream Tour segment, the dream pop artist, Boo Seeka, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
Hopefully, in another 30 years Boo Seeka will be still kicking and one of the most respected bands in the world. This would be an ultimate dream tour of mine to see me and these 3 bands below (dead or alive) on one bill doing a one-night-only show in each major city around the world. It would be completely stripped back and each playing one of our most well know albums front to back. Think MTV unplugged style. Each band prior to the gig would play scissors-paper-rock to see what order we play.
Whether Boo was in this bill or not, I think it would sell pretty well haha. Go give these records below a listen, they are truly incredible.
Coldplay – Parachutes
One of the most iconic records in my life and will forever be an inspiration for me not only when writing music but in life itself. I have seen acoustic versions of most of these songs on YouTube but never live. Every melody of every song on this album is implanted in my brain and feel it would be hard to hear the band singing over the thousands of voices singing back to them. To be honest, I hope the result of the scissors-paper-rock game would mean that they would play last, and I could enjoy the show with the punters after a couple of bottles of wine.
Tame Impala – Currents
I honestly didn’t know if they would ever make a better record than ‘innerspeaker and lonerism’ but what they did with Currents was unbelievable. I would love to be drinking red wine with Kevin every day and get into his mind & ask him questions about how he writes these insanely iconic sounds.
Nirvana – Nevermind
And to be honest this is the set that would make my ultimate dream tour bill come to life.
Every time I watch this set and listen to this album I shut my eyes and wish I was sitting there in the crowd. Kurt is one of my major songwriting idols and to have been in his presence for even just one minute would be something that I would never forget. This album is still one of my go-to records every week and so thankful to my older cousins for showing me the record. Kurt and his unplugged set on Youtube is one of the main reasons I always write on the acoustic guitar before creating a track into anything else.
