“The girls give me a hard time for how long it takes me to put on my makeup,” Tate admits. “We have about an hour after soundcheck and our dinner break each night to get ready. We put on our ‘faces’ and fishnets downstairs in the dressing room, and then head up to the stage in our robes to stretch. All the rest of the changes happen upstairs with the help of our amazing costuming team.”
