Some opening acts learn how to headline by standing backstage and watching. FRANKIE BALLARD learned by sitting in the audience. He says, quote, “I learn a lot about what I don’t like about going to shows.
“So when I’m [headlining] a concert I can try to eliminate some of that stuff.” One thing he really doesn’t like is when it takes 30 minutes in between acts. Quote, “I’m like, ‘All right, man, let’s go!’ That’s the kind of stuff that bothers me.”
