Panel Discussion

Tour Strategy Panel: Artists in Motion and the People Who Move Them

Like the ideal road van, the best tour professionals are high-mileage and self-starters. They’ve seen everything that can go wrong on the road, and they’ve felt the satisfaction of seeing everything go right. This panel of top tour agents/managers/marketers, venue programmers and, yes, artists, has strategized every kind of road trip, delivering the goods to clubs across the continent and to stadium shows – with all the minutiae and scheduling, ticket pricing and production that goes with it. Is it more effective to be an opening act at a stadium/arena or the headliner at a club? How is social media best used to generate awareness on the road ahead? How about publicity? For answers to those questions and more, park yourself here.
