This new set of Tour Tips was written by the rock band, Caravan of Thieves. You can check out their tips for being on the road, after the break.
1.Try to find time to exercise. Get out and go for a hike on a day off. On long drive days, always get out of the bus or van and walk, jump, or run around EVERY time it stops.
2. Eat healthy. It’s easy to have pizza regularly, try to limit that. Avoid going to fast food chains. Eat green and real (local) food whenever possible.
3. If there is a day that you don’t have to get up and out early make sure the alarm/wake up call is NOT set by previous guest.
4. Be flexible and don’t sweat the small stuff. There will almost always be something that doesn’t go according to plan, whether it’s on the gig or in your travel/accommodations. If you can roll with it, then you will have a much more pleasant experience.
5. Aside from what you wear on stage, bring a variety of clothes and shoes for all climates, but not too much since space is limited.
