Make Sure You Give A Phone Number When Putting Press On The Guest List

Lady-GaGa-Telephone.jpgWe all know that it is a good idea to put local press on the guest list for a show, but there is a quick way to make this press person your enemy instead of your friend. Often times venues these days will be hard-asses about the guest list and if there is the slightest transcription flaw in someone’s name on the list they will not allow them in a show. If you have a standard email you send out to people who you put on the guest list, make sure you also put the cell phone of the tour manager and/or responsible band member so that if something goes wrong you do not have a member of the press who drove for an hour to your show to not be let in.
