The Tour: A Mental Checklist and a Sanity Check

It’s the most challenging responsibility for any band, but especially for up-and-comers – more so than ever now that touring has replaced recording as your major revenue source. That cross-country drive could put you on the map, but it could also put you and your mates on non-speaking terms. There’s multitasking and micromanaging to do, merch to sell and equipment to move. And then there’s geography – the second largest country in the world provides some daunting roadblocks. In this session, some of the top tour planners and veteran road warriors run you through a complete checklist of what you’ll be facing on tour, and how to prepare for it, mentally and physically.
