Get Touring was the brainchild of a former major label artist and his tour manager who grew tired of seeing hard earned money flow from the North East due to a lack of resources and experienced personnel.
Our staff have over 10 years of experience working within the industry as FOH, tour manager, driver, backline tech and merchandiser. As a pair we can cover all of these roles, so if your looking for a more affordable way of touring with a ‘full crew’ then get in touch. We have extensive touring experience, working on tours and festivals all over the UK, Europe, America and Japan. Previous clients including Detroit Social Club, Beth Jeans Houghton, Lulu James, Ocean Colour Scene, Frankie and The Heartstrings, Monarchy, James Bay, Smoove and Turrell, The Futureheads and Little Comets.
We have a constantly updated list of other North East based personnel and can source production managers, lighting designers, crew and any other personnel requirements your tour or gig may require. If your looking to head off on your own but want to make sure that everything runs smoothly on your tour, then we also offer a pre-tour planning, logistics and budgeting service.
We offer backline hire on a dry hire basis or with a significant discount when hired on a tour alongside our personnel. We can supply anything from a single guitar amp or instrument for a days recording to full backline hire for a UK and European tour.
Our hire stock is based on equipment that we know can survive the rigors of the road whilst offering you excellent value for money. All stock is regularly serviced by our technician and tested before and after every hire. We aim to cater for those on a budget as well as those looking for something of higher quality and if you require specific equipment that we don’t have listed, get in touch, as our hire stock is always increasing and we will be able to source and supply this for you.
Looking for a splitter van? We recommend ‘Band Van Man’ based in the North East who have a fleet of high quality, 9 seater splitter vans, available with a driver or for dry hire for any driver over 25. Registered as modified vehicles and with fully comprehensive insurance specific for use within the entertainment industry, these vans are covered in the UK and throughout Europe. They are also London congestion charge exempt.
Why pay London prices to tour the rest of the UK? Our costs and wages reflect the low cost of living in the North East of England and we pass these savings direct to you.
