On big-budget tours, the role of tour manager is a lot more formal. There may be a team of people in place running the tour, and the tour manager's job and responsibilities become more defined. For instance, if there is a full road crew in place, the tour manager makes sure they are doing their job and are where they're supposed to be when they're supposed to be there. But, on well-financed concert tours, they don't have to look after the gear themselves. These tour managers act more as supervisors to the team working for the band.
