Hit the road! 4 tours in 2018 to take your brand the distance

When popular musical acts take their talents on the road, the sense of excitement among a very loyal and committed fan base is palpable. Using that enthusiasm and the characteristics of a months-long tour can give brands a unique chance to extend their exposure through the use of marketing partnerships.

Just in the past year we’ve seen partnerships between bands and brands like OneRepublic & Honda, The Rolling Stones & Icelandic Glacial, Blake Shelton & Nissan, Ellie Goulding & CORE Hydration and many more.

Read on to find out four tours coming up in the next year that could unlock your brand’s partnership potential:
