Yankee Stadium is a natural venue for another lesson: You won’t succeed all the time. Even Ruth, Gehrig, and DiMaggio failed most of time when they stepped to the plate. Finding the right path in life, more often than not, involves some missteps.
I figure it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy; if I make a successful arena rock record, I’ll wind up playing arenas! I wouldn’t mind being back in that kind of venue because of the kinds of things you can do with production. You can make your shows more interesting, which would be fun to do.

It’s like freedom of speech – they can’t tell you not to do it. When no one will put you on at a club or venue, you can go to the street, just start singing, and get a lot of good feedback from people as they walk by.

When we play an outdoor venue, you’ll see whole families – boys, girls, men and women – from kids to grandparents who somehow heard the music… Think about how hard it is for artists who can never get a gig at an all-ages gig. Who goes to hear music in bars? People who can get into bars; people who drink.
Live comedy is fantastic. It’s when live comedy is transcribed and reported and critiqued outside of the venue without context that things become complicated.

The weird thing about the subway is no one looks at each other. So I play the O2 in London. It’s a 20,000 capacity venue, and then I’ll take the subway to my gig, and everyone’s going to my gig, and no one looks at you. If anyone does, they say, ‘Hey, you look exactly like James Blunt, only smaller.’
With stand-up, I can have an idea, go down the street to a comedy club and work on it, flesh it out, book a venue, people will come, then film it. I do all that myself; I never have to answer to anybody.

Vegas is definitely a new challenge, but I wanted to be able to put on a different type of show.

I’ve played in some pretty weird settings; busking puts you in all kinds of situations. I can tell you the most depressing gig I’ve played was in the North of England. At that time, I was playing with a band. We drove 7 or 8 hours to Carlisle to play a 600 – 700 capacity venue – 9 people showed up.

A small venue is so much more intimate and loose. You can actually be more spontaneous, I feel.
Research the venue and location before outfit shopping, as it helps set the mood and style focus: a traditional wedding in the countryside offers a different set of sartorial rules to a tropical, beach vibe, for instance.
