Andy Inglis - The Road To Tour Management
23 Mar 2015
April 20th – Andy Inglis returns to deconstruct the live industry, this time focusing on one of the most interesting, pertinent and specialised areas: Tour Management. Whether you want to be a TM, you’re an artist manager assuming TM responsibilities, or indeed are the only member of the band who’s got decent wifi and can liaise with the promoters (!) this one-day course will prepare you for the all the things you hadn’t thought of, and set you straight about all the things you had.
Tutored by Andy Inglis, this course is designed as a much-needed best-practice roadmap for tour management, drawing on Inglis’ two decades of experience in the live sector as tour manager (most recently Savages), artist manager (2014 Mercury Music Prize-nominated East India Youth) and respected co-creator and manager of London venue, The Luminaire.
“I became a tour manager because someone got it into their head I’d be good at it, which isn’t necessarily the best path to success. I mean, I’d probably make a decent shoplifter, but a long stretch in prison wouldn’t suit me. Similarly, long stretches away from home with a bunch of people you didn’t realise you hated until you landed in Moscow might not suit you either, so you may as well come along, listen to me recount a litany of hugely embarrassing and costly mistakes (and how you can avoid them) before deciding if you’re cut out for the job…”
