In this Tour Tips segment, the pop-duo, Tryon, gives you their advice for being on tour. You can check out their tips and their newest single, “Come Kiss Me”, after the break.
1. STAY HYDRATED
It took me a long time to really get into a habit of staying well hydrated on the road. Most people don’t realize the toll shows every night take on your body, and how much water you lose when you’re exerting that much energy. I try to drink a Pedialyte a day in addition to drinking the appropriate amount of water.
2. PROTEIN BARS
Traveling every day means there won’t be a lot of healthy food options in between cities. I make sure that before I leave for tour I stock up on as many protein bars as I can carry to eat on on the bus. Quest bars are my personal favorite.
3. STEAM INHALERS
As a singer, taking care of my voice is obviously the most important part of my daily routine. Along with staying hydrated, I travel with a personal steam inhaler that I use every day before and after shows. When you travel as much as we do, weather can be all over the place so the air can be super dry one day or the heat could be on in the hotel, so having a steam inhaler really helps keep my voice ready for whatever.
4. CLOTHES FOR DIFFERENT WEATHER
I’m currently on a tour that started in Nashville, and right now I’m in Detroit. When I left Nashville it was 70 degrees… it’s currently 25 degrees here in Detroit. Traveling with summer and winter clothes is an absolute must if you wanna stay comfortable on tour. You cannot outsmart the weather so you might as well be prepared.
5. KNOW WHEN TO GO TO BED
For me, FOMO is a real thing… it’s really hard to make yourself go to bed when you’re in a new city and there’s new friends all around, but adequate rest is a must if you’re going to sustain peak performance on the road. You’re always going to have late nights and early mornings but finding time to rest is one of the most important things you can do.
