What Did I Learn?
• When preparing for an event of this caliber, always prepare for the worst while planning nothing less thank the best.• Things will happen, but as an artist manager it is best that you cover every corner and crevice of the event.• Ensure that every step of planning is followed up on and notated correctly.• Knowing and understanding the beneﬁts of a “Tour Team/Crew” and making it work to your and the artist’s advantage.• Most of all learning to have fun while conducting business at the same time.
