ADD TO CONTACTS

When the pandemic finally ends and tours begin again in earnest, the issues surrounding diversity in the music biz will still be with us. In hopes of developing a more inclusive climate on the live side, Shawn Gee and Live Nation Urban are assembling a Black Tour Directory for rollout before the end of 2020. This resource will gather contact and other info regarding black professionals and black-owned companies as a resource to artists, managers, producers, promoters, venues and other interested parties.

Typically, the lack of diversity in tour staffs has been blamed on the difficulty of locating personnel of color; the BTD aims to eliminate this excuse with a font of professional data—and to connect qualified industry peeps with a host of new opportunities in all areas and genres.

The Directory is currently being populated but its curators need your help. If you have a business or other name to refer, visit @livenationurban on Instagram and clink the link in the bio to register, or just go here.
