Behind the Scenes Live Music Tour

Music tour

Your backstage pass into the Austin music scene…

Ever wondered what makes music-obsessed Austin tick? Go behind the scenes and uncover some the icons that have given our city its deserved reputation as the “Live Music Capital of the World”. We start with a home-style southern lunch at none other than Threadgill’s, where we’ll eat in their memorabilia-soaked dining room and learn about the great artists who’ve played at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Next we’ll visit the Moody Theater, home to ACL Live, for a private tour of this incredible super-modern venue. Our tour will be led by Scott Newton, the acclaimed 40-year staff photographer, who’ll share anecdotes and experiences from his decades snapping the stars. Our tour then wraps up with a show at one of Austin’s best-known live music venues. This tour provides a VIP look into the Austin music scene!

This tour is done on a private basis only and pricing depends on group size.
