European Tour

I was extremely fortunate to be able to join the European leg of the Abacab tour for 12 shows as a rookie, eager to listen and learn from my favourite band. I remain grateful to this day.

World Tour

I was further blessed to be given the opportunity to join the band for the whole of the Three Sides Live tour starting at the American production rehearsals, eventually culminating at the Peter Gabriel reunion show. Life changing!

Peter Gabriel
& WOMAD Festivals

After a decade in corporate travel, next came Peter Gabriel’s tour, private and Womad requirements. There were many incredible festivals and shows, lasting the next 10 years!

Alanis Morissette
World Tour Travel

A true highlight was landing this unknown artist and taking the tour from 200 people at the first show to over 150,000 in 9 months as Jagged Little Pill took the world by storm!

George Michael
Tour & Personal Travel

A secret tour I was working on for him was cancelled following the LA incident in April. I’d known Yog since jamming at school together and I continued to arrange his travel until 2005 which included the Parkinson and Oprah TV shows.

Artist & Tour Management

My first time as both manager and tour manager, we toured Europe for 3 months with Saga, supported Fish on tour and took the Sweden Rock Festival by storm among many other triumphs! I continued booking and managing the band until 2008.

Driving Adventures
Travel & Media Management

In addition to the flight, hotel, and travel management on 40+ tours to date around the world, I also provide all social media & content management. We pioneered California Cruising and have provided sports car tours for car clubs and magazines.

Sound Of Contact
Artist & Tour Management

I was asked to tour manage the band after being re-introduced to Simon Collins (who I’d first met whilst with Genesis at his 6th Birthday party!) I went on to manage the band and Simon personally and we had two incredible years working together with two European tours, two Cruises and North American TV and concerts tours.

Stadium Tour Transport

With a new venture, an early client was Sigala who was just breaking as a DJ / Producer / Writer. Over the next year I provided transport and travel logistics for his stadium tour.

Big Big Train
Bookings & Tour Manager

I was approached in 2013 and 2018 to tour manage the band, but due to my other tour work, it wasn't possible until February 2020.

Sadly, over the next two years, due to the pandemic and then David Longdon’s tragic death, many tours I put together for the band were subsequently postponed or cancelled.

However, in 2022, we finally left the station with a series of highly acclaimed shows and as we enter 2023, I am delighted to have been asked to now also handle the band's event and show bookings.

Big Big Train together with Music Tour Services are back on track and lots more is to come!….

"I have had the pleasure of working with Graham Collins on many levels from Tour Manager, driver and personal PA through to my band as Artist Manager. He is without doubt one of the hardest working and honest to good men that I've ever worked with and I vouch for him as a person that you can rely and depend upon, both in business and personally." Simon Collins
Recording Artist / Producer / Musician / Composer
"With an 11-member line-up featuring a combination of musicians from the rock, folk and classical worlds, Big Big Train is not an easy challenge for any Tour Manager! We were looking for someone that could handle all of the complexities that surround our tours, and I am pleased to say that we found that person in Graham Collins from Music Tour Services. He made everything feel easy and relaxed for the band on our 2022 The Journey Continues tour and look forward to working with Graham on all our future shows." Gregory Spawton
Big Big Train
"“Graham Collins is the consummate music industry professional, and we simply could not have got Big Big Train back on the road without him. Since becoming Big Big Train’s Tour Manager several years ago and more recently taking on booking responsibilities and a wider role for the band, I’ve witnessed Graham’s extraordinary expertise first hand having worked closely with him. In addition to his amazing organisational skills and attention to detail, he has seemingly unlimited stamina, reassuring calmness under pressure and unstinting commitment to the bands and management teams with whom he works. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” Nick Shilton
Kingmaker Management
"I have covered tens of thousands of miles driving the UK, Europe and America over the last 17 years with Graham from Music Tour Services. Safety and focus are paramount in this business and with Music Tour Services, you really are with the professionals." Darren Talor
