Cover Band Soap Opera: Indianapolis Mini-Tour Lends Itself to Ridiculous Statements

Categories: Cover Band Venting.

Last month, my rock cover band traveled to Indianapolis for back-to-back shows and our first mini-tour. Being it was our tour of any kind, complete with two nights in a hotel, we decided to make the most of it and throw in plenty of ridiculous tour-related comments at any and every opportunity — even though we were less than small potatoes. Comments included, but were not limited to, the following:

  • “This wasn’t in our contract rider.”

  • “If I eat at one more Subway on this tour, I’m quitting.”

  • “We can replace you on this tour.”

  • “Where’s the bus? Has anyone seen the damn bus?”

  • “Hello, Chicago!!! … oh crap.”

  • “All these cities are starting to look the same, man.”

  • “We need a new opening band.”

  • “I can’t wait for this tour to be over and we can get back in the studio.”

  • “The record company just called. They said if we wreck one more hotel room, they’re pulling the plug on the tour.”
