Road Tested

Ultimately a Tour Manager will oversee every one and everything; from the tour budget, venues, dancers, backline and tour crew and musicians, promoters, flights, ground travel & hotel accommodations. This kind of role would really require a person with maturity and experience to ensure the smooth running of a tour, no matter what size. Traveling from country to country and continent to continent needs someone who can keep a cool head and communicate with people from all races, colors and creeds respectfully and consistently day after day.
