Backstage Stories

Backstage Stories

Glamorous or a grind - take your pick. Life on the road as part of a concert tour crew can be either or both. From the intensity of loading in and loading out, setting up and tearing down, to the anxious, white line drudgery of highway travel in the middle of the night to get to the next city on time, it’s a roller coaster ride of sacrifice and reward. Backstage Stories: Crew Are People Too is dedicated to the unsung ranks who toil in the shadows of the live entertainment industry. Without their passion and dedication, there would be no show. These are their stories - from backstage, from the road, and from the heart.
