Tour Manager

Chris Adamson worked as an engineer’s apprentice where he saved up enough money to purchase a van. This van led him to carve a strong friendship with guitarist Mark Ronson (who later went on to play with David Bowie) and Chris developed a knack for helping out local bands. After finding some success and passion for working alongside some talented musicians, Chris quit his job and with the help of another friend and audio engineer, Dinky Dawson, Chris was connected with Fleetwood Mac. Besides Fleetwood Mac, Chris also worked with groups such as The Byrds, Pink Floyd, and Steely Dan to name just a few. At the 2019 NAMM Show, Chris was honored with the Parnelli Lifetime Achievement Award for his successful body of work.
