Few musicians gain widespread recognition just playing their local pub/club circuit anymore. It's touring that wins new fans, sells more records and CDs, and opens the door to record company and management interest.
This book aims to give you all the information you need to survive life on the road, including detailed advice on how to cope with everything from van breakdowns, lost passports, and gear crushed in transit, to surviving terrible sound systems, and dealing with immigration officers who don't like musicians (none of them do!).
Most musicians want to gig and reap the benefits from gigging without being bogged down by all the other less fun stuff. That's why this book makes sure you get to the info you need without having to wade through reams of irrelevant text. It offers you a step by step guide to steer you quickly and easily through the trickier elements of touring such as contracts, insurance and visa applications.
Many successful artists and musicians have travelled this same road before. In this book you will learn about some of their experiences and adventures, and benefit from their own invaluable personal survival tips.
