“You know, as I look around a room this size, I can’t help but wonder: Who all has played in here? What other bands, what other artists? You know, I’m sure they kill it every night, too. These big bands and big artists, and I’m sure that they bring giant screens and giant lights, and I don’t know that we can hang with them. I don’t know if we’re good enough performers.
I’m not so much looking for validation as much as I want you to know that in my opinion, the most extraordinary part of our show is you guys. So, I don’t know what other artists have been through here, or what kind of production they bring, how good of performers they are, how good of musicians they are. But I’ll tell you what. I will pit our fans up against their fans every single night, and I think we would win.”
