In the book, Atkins shares his insider information on everything a band needs to do in order to find success on the road. Additional outside sources -- like Henry Rollins and Zim Zum, Marilyn Manson's former guitarist -- also give their advice on touring. 'Tour: Smart' has received high praises among critics and readers alike.
Atkins has now transferred his wisdom from the pages of his book to an instructional DVD. In the film, you and your band can learn everything from how to route a well-budgeted tour to screen-printing your own T-shirts. Atkins sums up his philosophies best when he says, "You can build a Great Wall of China, you can succeed on your own -- you don't need a label."
