ABOUT MASTER TOUR
From Beyoncé to Jim Gaffigan, many of the world’s top talent and tour managers have been using Master Tour for years. With over 3 million events, 150,000+ users, and 250+ trusted management partners, Master Tour has become the music industry’s essential touring tool. As former touring managers, Master Tour wanted to find a more effective way to handle all of the logistics of planning a tour. In 2000, they started the Production Consultants Guild. Shortly after, they released the Master Tour Database and pioneered data-driven applications in the touring industry.
In 2009, they changed their name to Eventric. Since then, they have invented Live Access – a friends and family ticketing solution unlike any other – and redesigned the Master Tour Database with top touring managers from around the world. Now known as Master Tour 3, they are helping clients run their live events more efficiently than ever.
