Incubus Takes Its 'Morning View' To Arenas

By | April 11, 2002 at 12:00 AM

Incubus kicks off its largest tour to date at the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon on Thursday (April 11). The tour, in support of its current album, Morning View, will visit arenas in 49 cities in North America through early July, with open dates on the calendar expected to be filled with yet more shows.

Incubus’s hometown friends and soundalikes Hoobastank serve as the opening act from April 11-May 15, while the group’s Epic Records labelmates Phantom Planet sign on May 24-July 3.

Frontman Brandon Boyd said that playing in such large venues offers its own unique challenges. “When we play arenas it’s really fun for us because it’s times 10, you know-it’s louder, it’s bigger,” he says. “But what we try and do when we play arenas is hold on to that feeling of up-closeness. That’s one of the reasons why I fell in love with music-being able to, like, really see the emotion in the persons when they were singing, or see the guitar string-boing-come off the guitar when somebody messed up. To me, that’s the biggest challenge-bringing a level of intimacy into a big room. But I think we can do that.”

The tour is the second annual Civic Tour, sponsored by Honda. Cars customized and autographed by the band will also be on display.
