Tour Manager Duties

Watch and learn as we take you through the in's and out's of being a tour manager. Allstar Weekend hired the best TM in the biz ...youtube.com
Cole Lynch's insight:

This shows the life of a real Tour Manager. He's on point from eveything to using to bath room to The Tour Binder. A great sign of an organized Tour Manager. I think this a great look at the good or normal things that good Tour Managers do and go through on Tour. Also he's pretty funny "Ejected from Tour" LOL.

This video shows behind the scenes of a Tour Manager. A tour manager manages transportation, scheduling, and all other financial needs of an Artist’s time on the road.  Not all managers have to be uptight and serious. He has a sense of humor, is straight forward, organized, and most importantly gets his job done. He excels at keeping his artists pleased and ready for the performance.

Kanye West's Yeezus tour features 27-song setlist, giant mountain ... | Tour Manager: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly  'Touring The World' | Scoop.it
Kanye West kicked off his Yeezus world tour in Seattle on Saturday night. According to reports on Twitter and Kanye To The, he played a 27-song, two-hour set.
Cole Lynch's insight:

Kanye is pulling out all the stops on his tour. That means as the Tour Manager you've probably gone to the moon and back to pull this two hour, 27 song set-list national tour off. Keeping this show on the road is a job for a vet Tour Manager. As the Tour Manager dealing with a artist with a great budget and an even greater vision can maybe sometimes be extremely taxing but the pay-off is grander.

Cole Lynch's insight:

Sometimes you can be in the middle of a tour with multi acts and the two acts get into it. Depending on how both parties play out will depend on you continuing your project and getting paid in some cases. This is an example of personal and business mixing. Not good, but glad they worked it out.

Cole Lynch's insight:

You wouldn't think you can work for a dead guy but in the Music Business, You Really Can! This is the 'weird' or 'unorthodox' side of the Touring world. Putting your energy into someone's passion and live, even if that someone has passed. Freaky.

Well this is quite Mysterious how the death of a legend can bring more money in than when he is alive. After the passing of Michael Jackson he has grown a debt of over 500 million dollars from overspending. However he somehow pays it all off; But how he isn't even alive?!?! Michael Jackson's "This is it" has become a international sensation across the entire world and has touched many hearts. Through his work he has left his mark on the world, that he is Indeed, The King of Pop.

Justin Bieber Accused Of Punching DJ Michael Woods' Tour Manager | Tour Manager: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly  'Touring The World' | Scoop.it
Justin Bieber has been accused of punching DJ Michael Woods' tour manager Alex Madden. Justin was at a club in South Korea and he reportedly started.
Cole Lynch's insight:

CON: Sometimes life on the road can get rough and sometimes the artist take their frustration out the nearest person. Sometimes that's the Tour Manager. Try to stay away from situations like this. When you see them bubbling, navigate the other way. Always.
