Big Time Rush had a huge concert tour planned this year. Since it's their second, and the summer has finally arrived Griffin thought this would be the perfect time for another tour. The boys are excited for two reasons, it's the summer, and they get a break from school and get to travel around the U.S. First starting in L.A. then to Seattle, going on to Denver and many more cities around the U.S. They decided to hang in their new tour bus while they wait for someone to come get them for their sound check and rehearsal.
Carlos heads straight to the mini fridge and grabs a soda. "This is going to be an awesome summer." He says excitedly before jumping onto the counter.
"And what possibly for?" James asks teasingly.
"Are you kidding me? We're going on tour and going to be surrounded by millions of screaming girls."
Logan laughs. "Carlos, he was joking." Logan remarks looking up from the new physics book he bought.
"Oh." Carlos says sheepishly. "Why aren't you guys excited?"
"We are," Kendall says from his spot on the couch. "We have one day before the concert tomorrow night and we just want to relax before then. Because most of our days after that is going to be hectic with interviews, sound checks, meet and greets, and then the actual concert. The only down time we'll have is when we're sleeping, maybe half a day between concerts, James birthday and when the concert is over."
Carlos nods in slow understanding. He's just used to have so much energy that he forgets sometimes the other guys needs rest.
"Shouldn't we be getting to the rehearsal?" James asks looking down at his watch.
Logan looks at his watch also. "You're right. Tonight we have to make sure we have everything. Carlos, that means if you want to wait til the last minute and pack then you have to do it tomorrow morning. " He marks his page on the book and stands up.
"Yeah, Logan, we know." Kendall says placing his guitar against the couch.
The guys make their way off the bus and into the Music box where Gusatvo was yelling at some of the stage hands and Kelly was trying to smooth things over.
"How hard is it to put up some stupid lights?" Gustavo yells.
Kelly hits him on his arm and steps in front of him before giving a smile to the workers. "You guys can take an hour break?" The workers happily oblige and stalk away.
"Gustavo yelling at the workers? Check." James said checking off a spot on his notebook.
"Dogs get on stage and start rehearsing now."
The boys quickly get on stage as Kelly hands each of them a microphone before heading to the sound board where Gustavo was already waiting.
They went through most of the set list and rehearsal with no problems. They were finishing up the "City is Ours" which is their closer for the concert. As the song comes to an end, Kendall, James, Logan and Carlos stop as the song ends, they all pose next to each other.
"Watch out!" Kelly yells.
The boys head shoot up and see one of the fallen lights heading towards them fast. They all jump out the way in different directions. Everyone winces at the sound of the light shattering to the floor.
"I told those idiot lightening people about the lights not being right." Gustavo says. "Dogs go home and start packing. I want you packed and ready to do the sound check at 4."
The boys not needing to be told twice or even argue with him, head out. Just as the door closes behind them, Griffin walks in with a letter in his hands.
"Griffin now's not the best time. One of the lights almost crushed the boys and it needs to be fixed."
"Gustavo, you need to read this." Griffin hands the letter to his bodyguard, who hands it to Gustavo.
Gustavo reads it out loud. "Big Time Rush is Big Time DEAD! You will be destroyed." Gustavo glances at Griffin. "Who would write this?"
"I don't know. I'm seriously considering not going through with the concert. I don't want to put their lives in danger."
"Wouldn't they be in more danger if we cancelled the concert and left them to be sitting ducks?" Kelly said to Griffin.
"Isn't there a way for them to still do the concert and keep them safe? Freight train is a big guy but it's still going to be difficult with only him." Gustavo asks taking off his glasses showing concern for his "dogs" safety.
"I know a way that might work but the concert for Los Angeles might have to be cancelled and pushed to the last day of the tour. And we might have to change the bus a little. I'll let you know a plan in two hours." Griffin nods to Gustavo then to his bodyguard and walks out of the Music Box to his limo.
As soon as he gets inside the limo, he pulls out his cell phone and dials a number of an old friend. It rings twice before the person answers.
"Elliot, I know this call isn't where I usually see if you want to get together for a meeting. I just got a death threat on one of my bands and I need at least four of your best to help protect the boys and find out who's behind this."
Griffin listens quietly to his friend's response as he tells him that he needs to send a profile on each band member, manager, assistant, and every person traveling with the tour in two hours. He will have his best briefed and sent to Griffin's office by tomorrow night. Griffin thanks him before hanging up. He proceeds to call his best engineers to redo the tour bus and add four extra beds and an extra bathroom.
He hopes they can handle this before something really bad happens.
