R5 Love Touring The World, But Reveal One Downside Of It All

R5 Love Touring The World, But Reveal One Downside Of It All

R5 kicks off the European leg of their New Addictions tour tonight!

Speaking with PopCrush recently, lead singer Ross Lynch opened up about the thrill of being on the road with the band, and couldn’t come up with anything that was bad about touring.

“We love performing and we love playing music live,” Ross says. “I even love soundcheck. I just like to play. It’s so much fun to me.”

He adds, “After-show parties are really fun — we’ll just kind of hangout with fans or friends that we know in the city. We’ll stay up until, like, 4 AM. That’s another thing about touring: your internal clock and sleeping schedule is so turned around.”

But Riker could think of one of the worst parts of touring: “Some showers. Some venues have some really nasty looking showers.”

LOL!
