There’s no shame in hiring a music tour booking agent, if you can afford it. They have a ton of industry contacts and take a lot of the guesswork out of the process for you. Their advice is usually invaluable, and can help you and your band use your time wisely while avoiding many rookie mistakes.
As an aspiring music group, your goal is to make it big. If you think you’re ready to be the opener for a big artist, don’t be afraid to ask them. Make sure your band is solid, the show is nearby, and send them an efficient email. You’ll never know if you don’t ask!
