The original idea was to look at a tour akin to old Motown or Stiff tours where we get several acts together on the road so instead of playing to only a few people, they can draw a far bigger crowd with support from local media. I dare not call it a movement but there is something going on here and we believe we should make the most of it, let’s hope this is the start of something that will grow and grow.
