In this Crazy Tour Stories segment, the indie pop artist, Lana Love, tells you about some of her stories from being on the road. You can check out the story, after the break.
I’ve had some pretty wild experiences while on tour. I spent 5 + years traveling the world on various contracts. Anytime I go somewhere new I have one rule: get lost.
Here are some highlights:
-got kicked out of the Monserrat in Barcelona for singing secular choir music on Easter Sunday
-got into a fight with Deangelo Williams about veganism and toxic masculinity at the King’s palace in Cairo
-saw the Pyramids, then smoked hash on the Nile
-trecked the Great Wall of China
-hiked 300 steps up donkey-shit mountain in Santorini completely hungover
-tasted the “best pizza in the world” in Napoli
-got a 30 minute glute massage on a nude beach in Rhodes
-woke up in a different timezone every day for 7 months while living on a cruise ship
-ate pan au chocolate on the metro in Nice
-ran 9miles, won a pack of cigarettes playing blackjack with the mafia in Venice, Italy, then smoked them all later by myself
-drank my first scotch in a sex dungeon in Edinburgh
-almost got fired from Disney, fell in love with a man I just met, and moved to Tenerife in one day.
-lived in a 10-person-sleeper-bus for 6 weeks across the US with a closet toilet and no shower
-saw a ghost and Houdini’s original lift built for his “disappearing” act in Macon, GA
-Kissed the Vatican
-lived off of Oreos and peanut butter for 3 weeks and got a parasite from a gas station in the slums of China
-played hide-and-go-seek in a museum with a little girl in Greece
-stumbled into the owner of the most famous theatre in Sicily and wound up singing an Italian aria on Pavarotti’s stage. He didn’t speak a lick of English, but our one word in common was “musica”
Every time I get lost in a new place, I find that we’re not really strangers at all.
