Concert Tour Production Management
Author: John Vasey
Description: This text deals with the business of production and sets out guidelines to follow in order to get the show on the road. It provides the basic information required to manage the production for a touring concert from start to finish in the most effective and efficient way possible. Beginning with an introduction to the touring concert, explaining who's who on the road, the author, who has worked on the production of many touring concerts for nearly twenty years, guides the reader through a tour setup using a realistic itinerary that visits different types of venues using the production manager's checklists. He also covers the role of the local promoter's production manager and how to manage a crew. The appendices provide some basic electrical formulae, a performance contract, a technical rider, a production checklist to suit most situations, and several forms to help expedite routine tasks.
