“Touring” encompasses all sorts of forays to bring your music to different locales and different audiences. Some band are only recording entities and rarely tour at all (see Fifty Ways to Tour Without Getting in the Van). Some groups prefer NOT to tour and focus on hometown shows, special events in their city and house concerts.
There are many kinds of touring. Over the next few days we’ll be talking about Weekend Touring, Select Touring, Wild Abandon Touring, Touring as a Job, Flex Touring, Regional Touring, National Touring and International Touring.
