The stars of Amazon’s immensely popular show ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’, based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s book of the same name, have hinted at the possibility of the band becoming a real act. The show, starring Riley Keough and Camila Morrone, is about a fictional 1970s rock band that becomes hugely successful. In an interview with InStyle, the cast admitted they have discussed the prospect of taking the band on the road for live performances.
The cast of the show includes Sam Claflin, who plays the band’s manager, and Ensemble member, Suki Waterhouse, who told InStyle that they have contemplated a tour following the success of the series. Waterhouse stated, “I think everyone would love to do that because it would mean we get to all hang out together again. Also, we learned all of the songs, so there’s just nothing stopping us”. With the show shining a spotlight on the music industry of the 70s and with a repertoire of original songs created for the show, there is plenty of material for a live performance.
The idea of bringing fictional bands to life on stage is not uncommon. Shows such as ‘School of Rock’, ‘Rock of Ages’, and ‘Bat Out of Hell’ have all followed the same formula, generating a significant amount of interest and revenue. The idea of bringing ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ to life on stage seems like a no brainer, providing an opportunity for the show’s fans to experience the music that they have fallen in love with on a deeper level.
There are no official plans for ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ to hit the road at present. Nonetheless, the cast all agree that if the opportunity arises, they are ready to take it. Despite the inherent challenges in turning actors into rock stars, the cast of the show should be able to carry off the live performances with aplomb, having trained extensively for their roles in the series. If the idea comes to critical mass, we could be seeing some incredible live shows from Daisy Jones & The Six in the not-too-distant future.
In summary, the cast of the Amazon show, “Daisy Jones & The Six” has hinted that they are discussing the possibility of performing as a real band on the stage. The cast, including Sam Claflin and Suki Waterhouse, are open to the idea and believe that they are well-prepared for a live performance. With original songs already created for the show and the success of the series, the idea of bringing “Daisy Jones & The Six” to life on stage is not uncommon. Due to the challenges of playing rock stars on stage, the cast would need rigorous training to carry out the performances successfully, but if the idea comes to fruition, it could produce some amazing live shows. Until official plans from Amazon or the cast, we will have to wait and see if “Daisy Jones & The Six” takes the stage any time soon.
