In this Dream Tour segment, the indie pop artist, Violette, reveals who she would want on her ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
I feel like you could ask me what my dream tour would be like on any given day and my answers would be completely different! There are so many different artists that have inspired me and influenced me, so this is quite the task to decide who would be my absolute dream to share the stage with, but let’s give it a go!
My first pick would have to be an in-their-prime Fleetwood Mac. I love watching the videos from their shows in the ’70s. Obviously, the band is known for their drama as much as their music, but there’s an energy in those videos that is EXACTLY what music feels like to me when combined with pure passion. You can see Lindsey and Stevie getting completely lost in these songs and when they get to those big moments, it’s absolutely incredible. Pair that with how tight the band is and how good the harmonies they were pulling off on-stage were, they are a must-have on my dream tour.
Next, I would go with St. Vincent. When I first told about her, it was through a live video of “Rattlesnake.” Once I saw her on the Coachella live stream after Masseduction came out, I was absolutely hooked. There’s such cool energy to her show and it evolves with her artistry, which is something I really admire. She’s such a chameleon and is able to pull off so many different styles, sounds, and different elements. She’s also arguably one of the best guitarists of her generation, so who wouldn’t want to see that every night from side-stage?!
My next choice would have to be MUNA, mostly because I am putting out into the universe that I want to play shows with them so badly! They’ve been one of my favorite bands since I first heard About U. There is something so genuine and personal in all of their music to the point where you can hear their humor in it, which is something that I have been striving for – to be able to put my whole self into my music. They also seem to create such a welcoming community in their live shows. I feel like I could go see them alone and end up crying in the middle of the dancefloor with a crowd of new best friends.
