Winter Garden, FL, January 21, 2020 — Following a recent announcement to the global music touring industry, “Beat The Street” will be debuting a line of double deck Van Hool motorcoaches for use as 16/14 bunk crew and band buses in America. Beat The Street, a European based specialty music tour bus provider, has built a global reputation for serving the touring music industry which is now expanding to the US market. “American clients have been asking us for many years to run our buses in the States”, said Joerg Philipp, Managing Director and owner of Beat The Street. “Double-deckers are not yet used in the States for touring, but their additional capacity is well known to those U.S. tour managers who use them with us in Europe and the U.K.” The Beat The Street U.S. team, headed by Tim King, who recently relocated from the UK to set up a new U.S. office, has already secured several key tours for 2020.  The first new Van Hool-double decker buses will be available to view at Beat The Street’s official launch on January 29th, 2020 in Nashville, TN.

ABC Companies will be supplying and supporting Beat The Street for the North American market Van Hool fleet.  “The world class reputation Beat The Street has with its clients is a result of the same values ABC has built with its own customer base. Partnering with an organization like Beat The Street is a natural evolution into another North American market for ABC and Van Hool”, said Roman Cornell, President and Chief Commercial Officer, ABC Companies. “We look forward to building on the existing relationship between Van Hool and Beat The Street in Europe while bringing resources and expertise to assist their growth into the U.S. music touring industry”, continued Cornell.

The distinctive Beat The Street Van Hool double-decker coaches will soon be seen travelling the country transporting many of today’s most popular artists to towns and cities throughout America.
