I am going over tour stuff. I do not want to go out for 1 and a half months straight. I have no idea what venues pay a band like me these days. I am investigating. I hope i can draw from 150 to 200 people per show at about 20 bucks a head. This would be ok with me if it all pans out. I do not know what the reality is. I know that I want to play the big cities, and some shows along the way. I never want to get on a plane again. I will have to drive every where. Trying to figure out the set list. Trying to figure out the venues, weather I should get a booking agent who will take 20% of the money :( or book it all myself. Trying to figure out if I want to use todd’s VAN or something bigger I can stand up in while driving to stretch and play ps3 on the tv while someone is driving.. Got to get it all worked out.
VAC wants to play in Austin TX, NY, LA, PORTLAND, SEATTLE, SAN FRAN, CANADA, ATLANTA, ARIZONA, VEGAS. Not sure about chicago, detroit, philly, kansas, nashville, and the rest. I’m not sure about any of it or how to break the legs up and how to manage it all.
Please leave comments helping me. What venues to play, what turnout will be like, who the good promoters are. Please leave this information in the comments.
