Last night was the final night of tour with Black Gold and The Young Veins. It was a great show and while I’ll be sad to not see them live almost every night, it was a great time and I wish them much success!
We played our second show with Hanson tonight, and it was a pretty cool experience. It was a ‘concert in the round’ deal where the stage slowly rotated during the show. It was such a high energy crowd and just great to watch. The venue was selling merch, so I got a bit of a break to enjoy both Rooney and Hanson. To tell you a little bit about how the merch booth will be different during the Hanson gigs, the merch will be priced:
Hoodies: $35, $45
Tees, Tanks, Totes: $25
Eureka CDs: $15
Eureka Vinyls: $20
Wild One, Bracelet: $5
About meet and greets – there won’t be any formal meet and greets, but the band will do their best to either hang out right after their set for a few minutes, or after Hanson’s set.
Some people have been wondering what the setlists will be like. There is no setlist voting for the Hanson shows as the sets are short (approximately 40 minutes). However, there are still a few headlining shows that you can vote for (and August 15 in Toledo was just added).
We’re now driving to Cohasset for a gig that’s similar to tonight. After that, it’s a sold out show in Philadelphia which everyone is really psyched for.

We are on the way from Greenville (which was a great show!) to Richmond for a much needed and anticipated day off. The days off this tour are so few and far between that every time one comes around, it feels so good.
What do bands do on their days off? Maybe a movie or two, a nice meal…
And as for me, I do laundry! I’ll generally get my own hotel room, regroup, and spend some time alone. It’s fun to meet new people everyday and see my favorite band play live, but it’s also nice to have some quiet time away from everyone. Tour buses may look big, but put 8 people on one and it seems a lot smaller!
To talk a little bit about the opening bands on this tour – The Young Veins and Black Gold – they’re both great bands to watch live and have an extremely high stage energy. The Young Veins released their first album ‘Take A Vacation’ on the same day as Rooney. You can check out their website here. Black Gold have an album called ‘Rush’ out now which you should definitely listen to. Their Twitter is also a great place to read little tour updates.
If you have a chance to catch them live (if not on this tour – then when they come back to your town), don’t pass up the opportunity!
If any of you have questions about tour life – please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer!
