Whilst promoting his new track with Sam Smith, Calvin Harris was promted with a question regarding the comparison between studio and tour life. Apart from his Las Vegas residencies, Calvin Harris has not done any extensive tours in quite some time. Apparently, Calvin’s lack of touring is due to his age, stating on the Boogie & Arlene radio show:
“I’ve done tours before but for me, I think my personal strength is in the studio — It’s what I enjoy the most.”
“But a tour? No way. I can’t do tours any more. I’m too old.”
It’s a surprising reason behind why he has stopped touring, Calvin Harris sits at 34 years old. Age hasn’t stopped other artists, with DJ’s such as Laidback Luke still constantly touring at 41, David Guetta at 50, Armin Van Buuren at 41, Diplo at 39 and countless others older than Calvin.
With his commercial success, there really isn’t a financial need for Calvin Harris to tour. You can listen to his brand new collaboration with Sam Smith embedded below.
