Cutting down cost! For traveling and lodging the band can cut out at least one hotel room by asking fans to let them crash at their place. That can cut out around $1,900 for the thirteen nights. Artists per diems should be cut down from $25.00 to $15.00. Instead of paying for cabs the band could invest in a car2go membership or purchase a van and trailer to help them and their equipment get from Point A to Point B. As far as renting equipment goes the band should try and get endorsements and network with people who will let them borrow equipment too. It wasn’t stated in the tour budget plan how much the tickets were going for, but they can raise the price $3–5 to gain more from the tour.
