Music Business/Law Tips - "Tour Support"
Artists normally sell more product when they tour and selling product is really all that record labels care about, so sometimes a record label will financially support a tour if an artist is new and not breaking even on the road yet. This is called "tour support". Tour support money can help defray touring related expenses such as gas, food, food, lodging and crew. This would be considered an "advance" that is generally recoupable against the artist's royalties. Ben McLane Esq. benmclane.com
