Some artists have begun to take out their own insurance because of their past good records, thus obtaining lower rates if they have not had problems with equipment or, more importantly, audiences. This is no small sum. On a per-show basis, the fee can run $2000 to $15,000 for liability insurance on a concert. If the promoter does not have to pay this, he has more money to put into the physical production. In summary, the promoter wants clarity, reasonable requirements, and up-to-date riders. Too often the rider spends more time on additional frills than on services required to put on a good show.

Confidence is half the battle. Second, it helps you get your act together.
