Count It All: The Actual, Hard Costs of Touring | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Touring is expensive. My band Enation has at times lost thousands of dollars doing it all the wrong ways. I have talked with other musicians who have had the same problems: working months to get on the road only to be met with a lot of debt at the end of the tour. You’ve probably made some amazing memories and had a lot of fun… but if touring becomes a consistent financial drain then chances are you won’t be able to sustain it.
