Name: Drake Name of Tour: Club Paradise Tour Describe your team in three words: Loyal, honest, hungry. What is your favorite memory so far of working with this team of individuals? We spend each day creating new memories…so my fondest is always the most recent. Where is the strangest place you’ve ever performed? In a barnyard full of horseshit. What is the most fun part of touring? Having a great crowd that just wants to sing loud and go hard. What is the hardest part of your touring? Staying healthy. Is there anyone not pictured who is integral to making your show happen? My entire band and production team and all my fans. Do you have any lucky charms? Jimi Hendrix Live at Woodstock on DVD. I always have it looping on my bus just to remind myself no matter what, you can always turn your situation into a great show. What are your pre-show rituals? Vocal warm-up, prayer, and a shot of Henny. What are some of your essential backstage items? Any special food or beverage? Listerine spray, chicken dishes, fresh clothes. If you could play anywhere, where would it be? Toronto. What is the biggest misconception about being backstage or on the road? That it’s not everything it’s cracked up to be…’cause it is.
