This set of Tour Tips is written by rock band, Woe, Is Me. You can check them out after the break!

1. Be prepared to fix your vehicle. Putting 10,000+ miles on your van/bus in one month while towing a trailer is very hard on it. Make sure you run a long lasting synthetic oil (we use Amsoil which last 15,000 mi. between changes). Bring basic tools to change a flat tire, change oil, change spark plugs, crimp wires, etc. Also bring spare fluids if your vehicle has a leak of any kind, and then restock after you get paid.
2. If you think a girl is underage, SHE PROBABLY IS. It doesn’t matter how you do it, but somehow you need to find out the girl’s age before you two lock away in the bus, or behind a dumpster….
3. Make sure you have a tour manager. The responsibilities that a TM carries can be more than overwhelming for a band to handle on top of everything else they have to worry about. If this is not possible, put the band member with the most “business” experience in charge of these decisions. (Preferably the member that parties the least!)
4. Make friends with the headlining band. Since they have the most control over the tour, be sure to make friends with them right off the bat. If they’re popular enough, it will definitely help your band to be close with them as well. It’s not what you know, but who you know!
5. Make sure you have a band bank account and deposit most or all of your earnings as often as you can. It is not uncommon for bands to get robbed, broken into, etc so you don’t want to be carrying a lot of cash on you all the time. Above all else, LOCK your van/bus every time you leave it. The lots lizards can be sneaky!
