fees cannot be written into this rider and must be stated in the original contract.
E. SPONSOR agrees to have all tickets consecutively numbered. Unless ARTIST is

before doors open. ARTIST reserves the right to monitor all ticket sales. If contract is

Every effort will be made to obtain the best possible fares within the confines of ARTIST’S
schedule. SPONSOR will also be billed for baggage fees in addition to airfare. (See I. B
Page 2)
All hotel reservations for ARTIST and band will be made by ARTIST’S Road Manager.
ARTIST and band will need FOUR (4) hotel rooms (4 duel queen rooms) at a Marriott or
Hilton hotel. SPONSOR will be asked to arrange payment directly with hotel by faxing a
credit card authorization to hotel as soon as reservations are completed, or prepay hotel
fees in the travel reimbursement. Credit card authorizations must be confirmed with
ARTIST’s Road Manager. Depending on ARTIST’S flight schedule, hotel may be booked
near the venue or airport, whichever will best accommodate the ARTIST’S travel needs.
Please be assured that everything will be done to get the best possible rate! If you have a
special rate at a specific hotel, this info must be given to artist road manager before
contract is signed. Because of travel schedules we cannot guarantee we will be able to

required to unexpectedly stay overnight while in route to the event, SPONSOR will be
responsible for all charges for interim lodging,food, and transportation expenses. ARTIST

Manager prior to the event. SPONSOR is responsible for meals for ARTIST and band as
soon as travel is initiated and until it is completed. We have found this to be necessary as
airlines no longer provide meals during flights. We have also found that flexibility in meal
planning works best due to different time zones and inability to predict when the band will
be hungry. For those reasons, we ask that meals not be catered at the church or venue.
SPONSOR will notify ARTIST’S Road Manager of which option they prefer. We offer hosts
these options (Options may be combined):
1. SPONSOR may opt for a meal buyout at the following per diem rate:
Total Daily Per Diem $55 Per Person times seven band members. Total daily Per Diem
