Tour life: what's it really like?

I have been on tour with some cool artists in my time. Not as lead, but as background singer and dancer. Tons of fun and lots of work and discipline. I remember performing at the Lincoln Center New York and the night before, we decided to hit the streets until 5am. The late night is the time to enjoy New York. We shook the spot and went to the Bronx and had a ball. So many stories. I got locked out of the hotel room in only a towel for about an hour. That was crazy.
