Strength, Knowledge, and Information, with Malchijah Bailey

Veteran Risk Management and Security Specialist Malchijah Bailey has built a sterling reputation working with artists of all genres at the highest level. During his 25 years in business, Bailey has taken a wealth of experiences as a Road Manager, Tour Manager and One Man Tour de Force handling Personal and Venue Security on stadium tours, gaining intimate knowledge of the different audiences that come see his clients, resulting in a security mindset that prioritizes people and relationships. In our discussion with Bailey we talk about how backstage will need to evolve when we return to the road, the best way to create and preserve the right tour vibe, and learn tricks of the trade that have made him a source of knowledge and inspiration.
