How to Tour 101- Be Nice




*Be nice to your road crew. Most techs, crew chiefs, loaders and support personnel would change places with you, the performer, in a heart beat. Treat them with kindness, courtesy and respect. In each one is a dream deferred.

Support crew are essential to touring artists. Drivers, loaders, sound and light engineers, merchandisers, all create a conducive environment for the performer. Always treat your techs and crew with caring kindness. If they’re grumpy it’s because while you were sleeping, they were fighting traffic or loading in your amps.  Techs and crew deserve respect. We could not rock without them.
