Now Is the Time to Start Planning Your Post-pandemic Tours

Touring bands were decimated in 2020 – and even though shows aren’t allowed right now (for good reason), we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Now, do you want to be the band who scrambles to put together a tour when shows are allowed and safe, or do you want to be the band who has all their plans in place and just needs to book the shows when it’s time?

The latter band has a big leg up in this situation so we think the choice is clear.

Listen now to learn how you and your band can prepare for the return of shows so you aren’t caught sleeping on the job.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why you need to start planning tours now
  • How easing into touring is vital to longevity as a band
  • What questions to ask yourself before planning your tour
  • How to choose which venues to play
  • How tours can change from what you’ve planned
  • Why drafting a plan now is great for booking shows later
  • How to plan for emergencies away from home
  • Why prioritizing your bandmates is important
  • Why now is the time to start growing relationships with promoters and talent buyers
