booking a tour in america

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by punkbassistfc, Mar 3, 2008.

  1. Hey guys, my band is looking at touring the states early to mid next year. We where looking at doing a a bit of the east coast, then going back later in the year and doing bits of the west coast. Does anybody have any tips on how to go about booking a tour like this? Is it the best to just find other bands to play with etc?

    If you have any contacts of local promoters or booking agencies i will be forever greatful.

    Thank you:hyper:

    coming from Australia, i would definitely try emailing record labels, bands and their booking agents because right now is the time they are working on summer packages. they could help you rent a van/split a van/shuttle bus with one of their bands and make sure you get taken care of (gas, food per diems etc) even print you a batch of shirts and stuff so you don't have to deal with customs.
