A concert tour is basically a tour in which an individual or group of musicians perform at different venues, towns or countries. The venues are selected based on the type of music that the band wants to perform. They also need to be venues that can accommodate their instruments and other equipment. Music fans usually travel to the venue to see the performance. Most concerts are planned by well-known music groups or individuals who want to popularize a singer or instrument.
A concert tour normally spans a certain geographical area over a given period of time. Sometimes the tour will just cover a town or two, while other times the tour may encompass several countries. Usually, tour organizers pick the venues beforehand and let people know the date and time period for the tour. They give enough notice to the public so that there is enough of a lead-time to organize all the necessary arrangements for the concert and other events.
Touring with professional musicians offers the best deals because the organizers are making their own money from the tour. Other touring companies make their money through advertisements. In a nutshell, there are usually a fee for each venue for a concert tour and a charge for a guided tour. Both the prices vary depending on the company. There are even some companies that offer to do both tours and guided tours together to maximize their client’s revenues.
