The Essentials You Need for Touring in 2023

Are you ready to hit the road in 2023? To make your gig or tour stand out from the others, it's important to have a stage presence and merch that are both unique and memorable. The correct setting may lend an air of professionalism, individuality, and aesthetic that will impress anyone catching your tour. And don’t forget, setting is everything. It’s one thing to perfect your songs musically, but you’ll also want to consider the experience you create while on tour.

Add Visual Depth with Backdrops & Scrims

A backdrop is your chance to show off visual elements of your band. It could be album art, the branding of the tour package or anything that will impress people watching you on stage. Fortunately, there are many different sizes and styles of backdrops available, making it easy to find one that fits your needs and tour. From 10x10 all the way up to 30x20, there's a size for every gig. Whether you’re looking for something small enough to fit a club stage or something larger for an outdoor show, Tour Essentials has you covered. Not only do these backdrops come in several sizes and styles, but they are also made of high quality materials that are designed to last through numerous events tours. You’ll create memorable visuals your fans will love.

In addition to a backdrop or stage banner, you may also want to add a couple of scrims to the stage. Also available in numerous sizes to fit a variety of venues, stage scrims can add even more depth to your stage presence.

You Need Merch

Any touring band needs to sell merch to thrive on the road. We provide everything a touring band needs to advertise themselves and their music including custom-printed hoodies, t-shirts, stickers and more. Bands can give supporters fully-printed lanyards during events and concerts, which lend themselves to a VIP experience. These lanyards will promote your brand long after the tour, whether you print your logo, song lyrics, artwork, or something else.

Providing fans with a way to take home a piece of the tour can be a powerful marketing tool as well. It can help create buzz around the band and attract new fans. Plus, band shirts and hoodies have a lasting value. How many of us still have an old punk rock hoodie in the closet? Print plenty of merch and keep your band financially healthy on the road.

Merch Tables & Popup Tents

Put the finishing touches on your tour experience with a fully branded merch table or popup tent (for outdoor fests). Although subtle, these options give you yet another way to show off artwork for your latest record or the aesthetic of the tour package.
