Epic RecordsLast month, Ciara announced that she was looking for a brand-new band to take on the road. Now, the singer is giving us a glimpse into the process of finding the right musicians for her upcoming North American tour.
“I wanted to have the best band I could possibly have, with young fresh energy,” she told Billboard during the auditions at SIR Studios in Los Angeles.
In a behind-the-scenes video posted by the magazine, Ci Ci watches and then selects a drummer, bass player and lead guitarist for her first outing in six years. “This is when it gets fun, this is the fun part,” she says to her crew.
The singer is anxiously counting down to the tour’s kick off on May 3 in Chicago. “It’s been while since I’ve toured, and I’m ready!” she says.
If you can’t make any of the dates, she’ll be streaming her concert at The Fillmore in Silver Springs, Maryland, via Yahoo Live on Sunday, May 9.
