Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Were you the type of kid who dreamed about being famous? Did you want to sing in a rock-and-roll band? This is a common fantasy for many kids. We watch these superstars on stage, and their lives look so beautiful and fun. Wouldn’t it be great to join them while they are touring around the world?

The truth is many different types of performers use touring as a way to reach lots of fans. When touring, a performer or group of performers moves from city to city. In each city, they put on a show. It’s a lot of hard work to pack everything, move it, and then unpack… only to do it again after a few days. Still, it is fun!

Lady Gaga is a performer who loves touring and visiting her fans. But she also suffers from fibromyalgia, a disease that causes deep pain. Recently, she had to cancel part of a tour so her doctors could help her. But she couldn’t wait to get back on the road and start touring again.

If you were famous, would you enjoy touring? Do you like visiting many people when you travel?
