I’ve always loved words like this; words that ends in ‘our’. Maybe this is the reason for my excitement for this topic or because I’ve always imagined what touring the world and singing to people is like. Whatever my imagination was, it has never beaten a real tour.
Tour is a series of concerts, live performances by an artiste, a group of artistes or a band. These concerts are in different cities and counties. It involves the artistes traveling from states to countries just to perform. It is the most beautiful experience for a musician.
Tours can last for weeks, months or even years. It all depends on the touring artiste and the record label.
There are a lot of reasons for an artiste to go on tours. For the record label, it’s to make profit from the sales of tickets. For the artistes and his team or band, it is a refreshing experience. A lot of artistes have been inspired to write more songs by going on tours. It is a way of seeing how the fans love you, view you and why you should keep going as an artiste.
Artistes never really know how well their songs have travelled until they hear thousands of people from another country singing along with them.
Concerts are the best! It turns out to be emotional moment for many artistes because the world is singing their tune.
When an artiste is on the breach of depression or creative block, a tour is advisable. Just relax, travel the world and sing your old songs to people while making money.
Maybe when you feel like giving up on music, picture yourself standing on a stage with blue, red and purple lights accompanied by a dramatic smoke. See the millions of people singing, crying and screaming out your name because of that music you’ve made. I really have no word for it.
When you finally get to that stage, remember that you got encouragement from this space.
I really hope the pandemic can end properly so that artistes and fans can meet in a location to share feeling, goosebumps, tears and music.
And hey, you’re made to create magic. Don’t hoard it. Stay happy and make music.
