Planning a music tour can be a hectic process particularly if it is in a different country. The logistics are many and challenging for many music tour managers and coordinators. Sometimes, the music stars or the band may be directly involved in planning especially those in early stages of their career. Transports during the tour are one of the logistics people must look at with keenness to avoid any delays or disappointment. During the the big reunion 2013, one of the success factors was attributed to having enough vehicles to handle transportation.
Common vehicles used during a music tour
A grand arrival in limousines takes the celebrities a notch higher in reputation and fame. This is is a common occurrence for these stars to get limousine transfers from their hotels to the venue of the show. Some of these luxury cars may be hired as part of the show expenses or through sponsorship by some transport companies for marketing purposes. The managers and coordinators are usually in charge of organizing this stylish arrival, especially for famous music stars.
Coaches and buses
Nothing could be more convenient than a luxury coach transporting a group of band members and their support team. Apart from just giving transport, this is also a way of bringing the team together and do some final preparations either on logistics or adjust some issues that are challenging to the tour. Buses are good to cruise along the coast music tour and even do hotel transfer if the group is staying together.
Vans may not be convenient to transport the celebrities but one of the best in handling the equipment. With their covered cabins, people will not know what is being transported. While doing some busy music tours, the event may require more than one van to avoid late preparations and transport of the necessary equipment. Some transport companies do have reliable vans for hire on daily charges or a complete package. They also offer their experienced and flexible drivers to be with you all the way.
As much as it may be tricky for some music starts to use their personal vehicles, some tours may be convenient to do so. The upcoming musicians who are not on tight schedules or have a few shows to perform can use their vehicles to save on cost. If possible, one can let other people drive then in order to focus and have an easy time. Some of these cars can double up as equipment vans if their spaces allow.
The music tour organizers should always make sure transport is well taken care of by all means to avoid paralyzing operations. Other modes of transport like rail, water, and air are also used when need be.
