John Martin

Tour Manager

If they’ve made music, John’s probably managed their tour…..from the Clash to Mark Ronson via Yoko Ono and INXS, you’ll get to hear the stories from the road, and what makes a great tour manager in 2023. The long days and strict budgets, is it really like being The Mum or Dad of the band? Let’s find out!


“John Martin proved himself as an outstanding Tour Manager, handling all aspects of the organization of the tour with great expertise. He also fulfilled the role of Tour Accountant, handling banking and disbursing a great deal of money during the length of the tour.

“His attention to detail and scrupulous accounting was excellent. He would be an asset to the smooth running of any tour, dealing with problems and people in a calm and professional manner. I could not recommend him highly enough as a Tour Manager.”

Irving Azoff

“I’ve had the privilege of working with John Martin with Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon on several occasions and I’ve always been very impressed with his abilities and the skill with which he carries out his duties. I’ve worked with several Tour Managers over the course of my career, but John Martin is far superior to most. His technical skills are exceptional, his work ethic is stellar, and he is also a genuine pleasure to have on our team. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend his services to any other organization.”

David Newgarden, Manage This! / Chimera Music

“John Martin is an excellent and highly experienced Tour Manager. His over 30 years’ of experience and calm, professional demeanor when faced with the various challenges of tour management, are evidenced every time he has been in my employ. I recommend him highly as a valuable asset to any artist or management who chooses to employ him.”
