In this Dream Tour segment, the pop artist, Gigi Rich, lets you know who she would like on her ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
My ultimate tour lineup would be…insane. I would have Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, and Alicia Keys with me. I am in love with all 3 artists for different reasons. Bruno brought back that old school vibe that I want to bring back in my own music, and his performances are always killer. Super energetic and fun, to get the crowd dancing. Lady Gaga is just a badass woman who has an incredible voice. And she’s so versatile! She’s singing with Metallica at the Grammy’s, did a record with Tony Bennet, sang at the Oscars…she can do it all. I’m a huge fan of her! Born This Way will always be one of my favorite songs. Alicia is one of the first artists I was truly inspired by. Her music holds so many beautiful memories for me, and it would be amazing to have her on keys on this tour. I would have her do her entire catalog if I could.
I would also want some guest acts to come occasionally. Tina Turner can come and sing Proud Mary, Tom Jones can come and sing She’s a Lady, Stevie Wonder can come and literally sing anything he feels like and it would sound amazing. Aretha can come too if she wants and sing a little Respect. I just want it to be a giant party.
I imagine we would all have our own elaborate sets. Mine would include lots of jeweled outfits, faux fur and diva hair with a 60s/70s flair to it all. I LOVE background vocals, so I would probably have some fabulous backup singers join me. Of course, I would have to sit down at the piano and play a little bit, so I would want a bright red grand piano on stage with me. It would be a worldwide arena tour, kind of like Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 experience where he was on the road for 2 years.
