Kevin Schmidt dishes about life on tour with Big Time Rush!
Going on tour with the boys of Big Time Rush sounds like one big party, and according to Kevin Schmidt, it is! Kevin, Kendall Schmidt’s older brother, went on tour with his younger bro and the boys of BTR for one week this summer, and he’s giving Celebuzz the scoop on all of the fun tour shenanigans.
How did the Schmidt brothers, James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson pass time on the tour bus? Plus, who got a new tattoo?
“Going on the Big Time Summer Tour with Kendall and Logan was a big time rush,” Kevin tells Celebuzz. “It was awesome traveling across the U.S. on the tour bus and ending up in Kansas City, a hometown crowd for Kendall and I.”
However, when Kendall and the boys weren’t on stage entertaining their screaming fans, Kevin says they liked to hang out on the tour bus. “When the boys weren’t performing, we watched late night movies on the bus after gigs, laughed a lot, and witnessed the inking of more than a few tattoos! I told Kendall and Logan, ‘I’m here to be the hundred-sixty pound fly on the wall.’ I think I succeeded.”
In July, Kendall got inked with a sugar skull tattoo on his upper arm. The tat represents Mexico’s annual All Soul’s Day, which falls on Nov. 2. Coincidentally, that also happens to be Kendall’s birthday.
