The type of show with a million moving parts (sometimes literally), the stadium tour requires an extensive team of highly trained professionals working behind the scenes to convert arenas into dazzling sensorial experiences in just a few hours, night after night. Along with opening acts, who are vying for the hearts and ears of an excited audience, as well as headliners, for whom expectations are through the roof, everyone is giving it — in “arena speak” — 110 percent.

The indie show is impressive in its own way, with a more intimate vibe and few accompanying audiovisual effects. Often with local acts as openers and a skeleton crew at best of roadies and technicians, there’s often not much more than the basics to transport. In true indie fashion, bands will often opt to chauffeur themselves, typically in what you might call a “vintage” tour van. And we’ve all seen it on social media at one time or another: a pic of a broken-down vehicle with a sad post about a cancelled show. By choosing a reliable tour bus rental from Bus.com, you’re ensuring that the only breakdowns on your tour are of the musical variety.

Live performances are an integral part of a career in comedy. As funny as our fave comedians are in movies and television, nothing compares to catching the live show. Fans clamor for tickets, hoping to bear witness to unscripted moments, new material, and old classics told in a new way. That said, comedians and comedy troupes are faced with the unpredictability of a new audience night after night, and, well, we think that’s enough uncertainty for one tour. Bus.com takes our clients’ needs and schedules seriously — the only downside of opting for a charter bus rental over air travel is that they might have fewer things to joke about.
Watching little faces light up when they see their favorite characters come to life on stage is a career highlight for many a children’s entertainer. This is why so many choose to hit the road and give their littlest fans what is often their first taste of live entertainment.

This high expenditure of energy often requires a hefty dose of downtime between shows. Bus.com’s customizable tour bus rentals offer a secluded space while on the road for performers to recharge their batteries, so they can face curtain-up refreshed and ready to rock young minds.
