- June 3 / Edmonton, Alberta / Rogers Palace
- June 4 / Saskatoon, Saskatchewan / Sasktel Centre
Before heading out, the trio sat down with Nash Country Daily to play a game of superlatives. We dug deep to find out which Midland member is most likely to break a girl’s heart, be late to an event or get into a fist fight.
Check out their answers and get to know Mark Wystrach, Jess Carson and Cameron Duddy of Midland, just a little bit better.
1. Who is most likely to be late wherever you go?
Mark: I was actually drinking water, but I was going to say me.
2. Who is most likely to star in a reality show?
Cameron: You know what, can I say that it would be fascinating to see Jess in a reality show. It would be because he is such an interesting, colorful human being. What I really want to see is hidden camera stuff on what Jess does when he thinks no one is looking. This is the stuff that I think about when I am home without Jess. It’s pretty weird.
Mark: Jess could do American Pickers. I mean Jess could be a legitimate antiquer.
3. Who is most likely to cry at a sad movie?
Mark: God, that has got to be a tie between me and Cameron.
Cameron: Me and Mark like to cry a lot.
Mark: He was crying the other day. It’s okay to cry kids. It’s okay.
4. Who is most likely to break a girl’s heart?
Cameron: Probably Mark.
Mark: Just because I am clumsy with these big hands. You know, I don’t mean to break them.
Cameron: No, he doesn’t mean to. He’s still single. You know what I mean? So for all you ladies out there …
Mark: Ironically, I’m the guy that usually gets my heart broken.
5. Who is most likely to get into a fist fight?
Mark: I’ve got a broken … I’ve got a boxer’s fracture from when we got in a fight after a show, but I’ve never picked a fight in my life. When I kind of hit maturity and was playing football and what not, my twin brother and I had to come home and bounce at the family honky-tonk at the Stake Out in Arizona. Sure enough every single night, a big fight would break out and we’d have to jump in there. There would be cowboys swinging, you know, broken Coor’s Light bottle.
Cameron: Meanwhile, the ladies in the corner—That’s where me and Jess come in. Let these guys fight.
Mark: We’re all lovers, man. We’re not fighters. The thing about Midland is that we’re a band of brothers and if you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us.
6. Who is the biggest flirt?
Cameron: Man, it just depends on any given night.
Mark: It just depends on how much Jess or Cameron have had to drink.
7. Who is most likely to attend a Brittney Spears or Justin Bieber concert?
Mark: Oh, that’s Cameron for sure.
Cameron: Yeah I would probably go. I love production. So, I think they have such huge productions on those shows, I’m always fascinated.
Jess: Cameron’s wife, Harper, would drag him to that.
8. Who is most likely to crack jokes at inappropriate times?
Mark: We’re all pointing at Cameron.
Jess: Definitely Cameron.
Cameron: Me? Are you serious? Interesting.
9. Who is most likely to fall asleep at a party?
Cameron: That is definitely not me. That’s Mark. He’s usually the last guy to close it down.
Jess: Cameron parties hard and then he hits a wall. But he usually leaves.Sometimes he doesn’t leave. There was one time he didn’t leave (laughs).
