The Vanns’ manager Tom Larkin and booking agent Adam Montgomery interviewed each other recently about booking a tour during the global pandemic.

Having the candid chat for TIO, Larkin (Tiny Triumphs) and Montgomery (Fourtone) delved into the harsh realities the Wollongong band and their team faced amid COVID-19.

The four-piece’s ‘Red Light’ tour, in celebration of of the infectious indie-rock anthem single of the same name, has been rescheduled three times.

“I said to the band, ‘Look I don’t think these opportunities are going to play out overseas but we can get home and get on with the tour’… and then everything just shrunk and shrunk and shrunk,” said Tom Larkin in the interview.

Check out the full chat below, which sees the pair cover the logistics of changing dates, venues, selling tickets in a global pandemic, and seeking alternative revenue streams along the way.
