The Streets to take ‘borrowed’ fans on the road?

If you lend Mike Skinner something, he might let you on the tourbus

The Streets are considering taking fans on the road with them when they tour in October.

Mainman Mike Skinner floated the idea on his MySpace blog of picking fans up in one town and taking them to the next show.

“Not sure whether it will come off, but the idea is for people to bring items with them to ‘borrow’ to us (I’m aware of the error in this verb usage but my new album isn’t called ‘Everything Is Lent’),” he wrote.

“Our favourite items will be borrowed along with their owners and taken to the following show,” he added. “So, if you lend us something in Stockholm we would bring you to Copenhagen. I’m not sure this has ever been done. The logistics could be very logistical. Either way this tour is gonna he (sic) overboom. Expect the unexpected…”
