Finnish folk metallers Turisas invite you once again to stand up and fight with them once again. Never too long from British soil, this band have always been able to pull a crowd, and entering the venue, I can see that this was going to be no exception. As usual the room is awash with red and black stripes painted like battle lines across faces, proudly proclaiming their allegiance for the night.

Gloryhammer

 

On the penultimate night of their eight date UK tour, the wonder that is Gloryhammer hits London town. Coming from the mind that brought you Alestorm let’s face it this was never going to be a serious sounding band; it’s too much fun for that. With a debut album based around the story of the invasion of Dundee by an evil wizard (Christopher Bowes) with his army of undead unicorns, Angus McFife must find three objects to help him defeat the evil that is Zargothrax.

“A witty and inspiring power punch.” – Chuck Billy, Testament

One for the Road: How to Be a Music Tour Manager is the first and only book on music tour management. As the music business continues to go through many dramatic changes, music groups are quickly discovering that in order to build and sustain a successful career they must stay on the road and do as many shows possible each year. Because of this, skilled tour managers for music groups are now needed more than ever.

In One for the Road: How to Be a Music Tour Manager, author Mark Workman shows you how to become a tour manager for a music group in any genre of music; how to organize a music tour the right way; how to effectively complete one; and how to build your career as a music tour manager into a successful one. Written with an acerbic wit and brutal honesty, Mark Workman pulls no punches in telling you what it’s really like to tour the world with a famous music group.

One for the Road: How to Be a Music Tour Manager includes an insightful foreword written by Testament lead guitarist, Alex Skolnick.

Mark Workman has been a successful tour manager and lighting designer in the music business since 1983. His list of past and present clients includes Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Testament, Machine Head, Danzig, Mudvayne, Dio, Queens of the Stone Age, Devildriver, Soulfly, Sepultura and many others.

As a lighting designer, Mark Workman has designed high-impact lighting performances for many music tours, including the infamous Clash of the Titans (Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament, Alice In Chains, & Suicidal Tendencies) in 1990/1991 and American Carnage 2010 (Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax & Testament), as well as for many music videos and live DVDs such as Machine Head’s Elegies DVD filmed at Brixton Academy in London, Megadeth’s Rust In Peace Live DVD shot at the Hollywood Palladium, and Testament’s Dark Roots of Thrash Live DVD shot at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY.
