We’re not going to get too specific here, because we don’t want to spoil anything, but when you’re a teen and you’re trying to figure out what your dream job is, what you’re going to do, what’s your dream day, where you want to be, and so on, there’s a lot of uncertainty around it.
It’s just sort of like that whole idea of ‘How do you find out what you want?’ and it’s really hard.
We do know that there’s one place that we can go to and it doesn’t cost anything and it has the ability to help you figure out how you’re gonna do this and you can be successful.
It just doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
And when you think about how many things are out there that are helping kids get what they want, it’s kind of mind-boggling.
So the thing that really got me excited about this tour was it was sort of a gateway to a place where you could sort of find a way to actually get into the mindset that you’re not the only one who’s been having this kind of struggle.
The fact that we’re not in a box and we’re really not trying to get rich, and we have a way that we might be able to really put ourselves out there and maybe get more out of it, was really exciting.
It was really like, what would you do?
How would you go about it?
And what about the people around you, that might be the biggest hurdle in this whole thing?
When you think of the world around you and the way things are in the world, it just seems so empty.
And it’s not so much the money that we have, it is the sense that the world is in some ways a kind of prison, where it’s just filled with stuff.
I remember seeing a lot in ’76 that I think was very inspirational.
Like, you know, there was this whole concept of ‘If we all just did the same thing, we would be happy.
And then it turned out that we weren’t doing the same things.
And we’re doing it all the time.’
There’s this concept that you just gotta keep going and keep pushing forward.
And that’s exactly what we’re going into this tour with.
So we’re taking the same idea of how to make a career out of something as a kid, and then bringing in other people, like the music industry, to make the same kind of thing happen for us.
So there’s this big sense of wanting to be in a place that’s like a prison, but in a different way.
That’s what we wanted to do.
It felt like a very personal thing for me, too, because I think I really missed the process of being able to have my own personal thing that I could be doing and be able be in my own space and have my little music project.
So it was a really fun experience, and the fact that I got to tour with all these amazing people, and they were really into it and really invested in it, I felt like it was really an exciting, fun time for me.
And I think it was for everyone involved.
I mean, I’ve had a lot more time to think about it and see what we can do together, but it’s a great opportunity for us to actually do that, and that’s something that I’m really looking forward to.
