No future Polaroid
"It was crazy pulling up to the Memories: Do Not Open tour with The Chainsmokers. Last year, I joined Drew and Alex for eight dates on their Friend Zone tour which was only two tour buses. This tour had too many busses and semi trailers to even count.
My good friend Ashe (and vocalist on my track "Let You Get Away") joins the tour today. The crowd in Cincinnati was absolutely amazing. We after partied so hard this night with The Chainsmokers, Florida Georgia Line and Emily Warren that we accidentally deleted all the video footage. I wish I was joking, all we got from this night was this photo. (Bus group Polaroid)
Tonight was crazy. I got to play the Joe Louis arena before they tear it down in the fall. This is one of the most iconic arenas in all of America. I made sure to show my respect by dropping a medley of Kid Rock into Big Sean into Eminem and KISS. Couldn't go too hard tonight because of the early ‘bus call’ and nine hour overnight drive to Madison, Wisconsin.
Madison definitely won the award for most energetic crowd on the tour! I love when they pack as many people as they can on the floor of these arenas. I played an after party tonight with some local DJs that was super fun, can't believe it's almost over.
Last day of the tour. What a massive arena this is. Lighting it up with Delaney Jane and Ashe for the last time. So epic. Last year on the last night of the Friend Zone tour, I was coming back to the bus after an after party and got McDonalds for me, Alex and Drew, but forgot to grab something for The Chainsmokers' tour manager, Clancy, and felt awful about it. So this tour, on the last night, I made up for it by buying 100 cheeseburgers for Clancy (the tour manager) and the whole crew. Capped of the tour with an insane after party back-to-back with Alex at PRYSM nightclub. What a way to finish it off.
