TOUR EXPERIENCE

By clicking next to the artist names below, you will find just a few examples of services that I have personally provided over four decades in music, travel and transport management.


SIGALA - 2015 - 2016 / TRANSPORTATION

In 2015 I set up a dedicated transport company, Rock Splitters and via his tour manager, Sigala was an early client requiring transportation to various shows and appearances on television, such as Top Of The pops.

Due to his massive success, in 2016 we added additional vehicles to provide further transport for his new band, backing singers and dancers to attend a host of major summer open air festivals and stadium shows.

SIMON COLLINS / SOUND OF CONTACT 2013 - 2015 / ARTIST & TOUR MANAGEMENT

Simon Collins is an established recording artist, producer, first class musician and composer with three solo albums and one band album with Sound Of Contact among his long list of credits. Simon is also the first son of the legendary Phil Collins.

Having known Phil for close to 40 years, I first met Simon when he was just six years old, but little did I know that I would eventually be hired to tour manage his band in Europe some 31 years later.

At the end of the tour, Simon asked me to become his full time personal assistant which in turn evolved into becoming his personal manager.

In my time with Simon I booked and tour managed his band in North America as well as a number of times in Europe, while also putting together a television station performance promotional tour in North America.

In addition, I assisted in maintaining his business and personal financial affairs as well as providing tour transportation.

DRIVING ADVENTURES 2005 - 2019 / TRAVEL, LOGISTICS & MANAGEMENT

Since 2005, I have provided all logistics, travel arrangements and media for the company‘s global sports car tours.

In excess of 50 tours have been planned and taken place in that time which have taken groups around America, Austria, France, Germany, Isle Of Man, Italy, Luxembourg, Scotland, Switzerland and Wales.

PETER GABRIEL & WOMAD 1995 - 2005 / TRAVEL & LOGISTICS

As an international artist, Peter Gabriel needs no introduction, but he is also founder of the global WOMAD organisation that hosts multiple festivals around the world each year.

For ten years I provided travel to both Peter and the festivals independently. The latter involved the movement of around 250 personnel from worldwide points to the festival site which saw events in Australia, England, Gran Canaria, Greece, Portugal, Spain and the most challenging of all, in Venice Italy during the Carnival festivities.

ALANIS MORISSETTE - JAGGED LITTLE PILL TOUR 1995 - 1996 / TRAVEL & LOGISTICS

In 1995 I became aware of an album that was yet to be released that grabbed my attention. So much so, I spent months trying to and eventually locating the tour manager for a fledgling artist.

Having successfully persuaded him that I should handle any European tour and promotional travel arrangements, we first all met three months after the album‘s release at a small 200 capacity venue in London.

Over the course of the next 16 months, Alanis Morissette and her Jagged Little Pill album became a global phenomenon and subsequently, one of the best selling albums of all time.

I provided all European flights, hotels, private aircraft charters and personal travel requirements to Alanis, her band, crew and management often joining them on tour to plan with her management team the next phase of the ever growing tour de force.

GENESIS 1981 - 1986 / ON TOUR EXPERIENCE

Having first met Phil Collins at a Genesis tour warm up concert in 1980, I took myself off to Europe in 1981 to follow the band to see what life on the road was all about.

During a three month period, I assisted the crew in a number of countries with everything from merchandise sales to load in and load out duties.

As a result, straight from school, I found myself heading to North America in 1982 and was with the band from the production rehearsals in Peoria, Illinois in July through to their final show in October reuniting with Peter Gabriel at the Milton Keynes Bowl.

The band and crew tasked me junior duties covering everything from general lighting assistance working with the brand new and revolutionary VL1 and VL2 Vari-Lite systems, drum tech duties through to runner and even assistant to the band.

To this day I am indebted to the band and crew for the opportunity they gave me and which made me DRIVEN To TOUR!
