Alternative/rock band, Theory of a Deadman, have written a set of helpful Tour Tips that you guys can learn from. You can check them out after the break.
1. Get used to being in tight places with lots of people.
2. Bring headphones (for when those people get really annoying!)
3. Find a hobby, like reading or doing hard drugs, cuz there’s lots of down time.
4. Make designated areas for partiers and non partiers. So you can crank up music or be a nerd and watch the discovery channel in the back lounge
5. Most importantly, have a thick skin. There will be times when you will be a target of humiliation and you gotta be able to take it as much as you give it or you won’t survive.
