PSA TGP formed to provide Covid-19 Working Procedures Guidance for touring

The PSA Tour Production Group has been formed by professionals from throughout the global concert touring industry in order to provide a unified response on live music events in regard to Covid-19. The group is a new arm of UK trade body the Production Services Group, which works with artists of all levels. Its formation centres around the touring community getting back to work safely and supporting its survival in a pre-vaccine Covid-19 era.

Take That’s touring productions operate under the helm of production manager, Chris Vaughan. “We have brought together the leading experts in live music concert touring to agree on how tours should be run whilst the threat of Covid-19 remains with us,” he commented. “Production and tour managers are responsible for the operational, logistical, financial, creative and technical delivery of concerts around the world and, as such, we are proposing a series of guidelines that can be practically and realistically implemented.”

The group acknowledges that tour-specific guidelines will become the norm in order for live production professionals to work and interact safely and offers workable solutions that scale in accordance with current, regionalised threat levels. Sam Smith’s production manager, Wob Roberts, added: “Covid-19 is an unwelcome addition to the rider yet there’s no better group of people to find the solution than those that deliver shows for a living. More than a document, this is intended to be a responsive set of protocols that efficiently move with a changing environment.”

The Covid-19 Working Procedures Guidance outlines how touring productions – which include one-off shows, festivals and live events of any size that require moving personnel and equipment to a new destination – can better align with suppliers, venues and promoters through consistency and consultation to assist risk management relating to Covid-19 transmission.

Based around a hierarchy of control – including elimination, substitution, engineering controls, administration and PPE – and a responsive threat scale, the guidance details different levels of design, schedule and control measures appropriate to conditions. These measures include social distancing, health declarations and monitoring, hygiene and cleaning, and mitigation. The procedures aim to offer unity and hope; a collective voice of peer support and best practice.
