    You don't even need a four-person band. You can do it by yourself. If you have all the instruments from RB or GH, just plug them all in and have them join a session of "Band Tour". Like was said before, it unlocks before a song is played, so then you can stop the song, unplug all your instruments and put them back in the corner. :-p

    Literally one of the easiest "band" achievements ever.

    OzzysShadyDiscoThere is no online multiplayer for this, you have to do it locally!

    SashamorningRB came with a USB splitter. Otherwise you can use wireless instruments.

    While the achievement is easy in theory... you still need ALL four instruments connected to YOUR console to get it. Why you ask?

    This game does NOT feature Xbox LIVE multiplayer.

    For compatible instruments that you can use with this game, look no further than the RockBand.com website:
    http://www.rockband.com/compatibility

    The following games include bundled instruments that are compatible:
    Rock Band
    Rock Band 2
    The Beatles: Rock Band
    Guitar Hero II
    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
    Guitar Hero: Aerosmith
    Guitar Hero: World Tour
    Guitar Hero 5
    Band Hero
    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
    Lips


    Below is a list of instruments that are believed to be fully compatible with Rock Band and All Track Packs (including AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack).

    NOTE: You will need to have 2-3 AA batteries for each wireless instrument, depending on the instruments used (6-8 AA batteries total). Some instruments in the list below will require 3 AA batteries!


    Guitar/Bass (you will need any 2 of these; most are wireless unless noted):
    Rock Band 2 Fender Stratocaster
    Rock Band Fender Stratocaster (wired)
    Mad Catz Fender Telecaster
    Mad Catz Fender Precision Bass
    The Beatles: Rock Band Hofner Bass
    The Beatles: Rock Band Gretsch Duo-Jet
    The Beatles: Rock Band RickenBacker 325
    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock guitar
    Guitar Hero 5 guitar
    Band Hero guitar
    Guitar Hero: World Tour guitar
    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Gibson Les Paul
    Guitar Hero II Gibson X-Plorer (wired)


    Drums (you'll need 1 from this list; most are wireless unless noted):
    Rock Band 2 drums
    Rock Band drums (wired)
    The Beatles: Rock Band Ludwig drums
    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock drums
    Guitar Hero: World Tour drums
    Band Hero drums
    Rock Revolution drums
    ION drums (wired)
    MadCatz Rock Band 3 Midi PRO-Adapter for Xbox 360 in "D" mode setting (wired)


    Microphones (you'll need 1 from this list; most are wired unless noted):
    Any USB microphone*
    Rock Band 2 microphone*
    Rock Band microphone*
    The Beatles: Rock Band microphone*
    Guitar Hero: World Tour microphone*
    Band Hero microphone*
    PDP microphone*
    Xbox 360 Wireless Microphone (bundled with Lips)*
    Xbox 360 Rock Band M.I.C. (Microphone with Integrated Controller)

    * A standard Xbox 360 controller is also required to play vocals, unless you are using the wired Xbox 360 Rock Band M.I.C.


    Assuming that you have 2 guitar controllers (guitar/bass), drums, and microphone with standard Xbox 360 controller (vocals)...

    Connect all controllers, including the microphone.

    The instrument you prefer to play does NOT matter as you will not even need to play a song.

    You can sign-in extra Gamertags as well and they too will also get the achievement.


    From the main menu, choose:

    MULTIPLAYER -> BAND QUICKPLAY

    Press the green fret button on both guitar controllers (guitar/bass).
    Press cn_A (OR tap the green pad) on the drums.
    Press cn_A on the standard Xbox 360 controller (vocals).

    Press cn_A (guitar: green fret button/drums: green pad) on the controller that is the band "leader" (noted above the instrument icon).

    Achievement unlocks at the setlist screen.


    Feel free to leave the stage because you were only ABOUT TO ROCK. In other words, disconnect all controllers, go for a different achievement, play a different game... whatever you want. You're done.

    And by the way... tell the crowd that you are going solo from this point on as the rest of the achievements in this game do NOT require a full band. Good luck!

    PiCkLE SQU1DGood solution. I still need to get another guitar and maybe another drum set for Thrasher in one of the other Rock Band games. +1
