Default Re: Touring for no money

The whole ad just rings of exploitation for mine.......one off tour....very little info.....guaranteed to get bumped as soon as it's over......all for no pay?!?!? Playing for 'exposure only'.....no guarantee of that either.

If it's your own act I think it's fair to play for the love of it......to be brought in as a hired gun and get nothing out of it.....to me just smells of 'rip off'. Perhaps I'm just too cynical.....but I doubt even at 20, this would have appealed to me.

Now if there was the prospect of a full time gig out of it......a whole 'nother story.
