Publicity Tour is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that is given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by rock band Love Fist from the V-Rock Recording Studio in Downtown, Vice City.


Tommy Vercetti, after getting Mitch Baker to provide security for the gig, heads back to the recording studio to tell Kent Paul of the news. However, Jezz Torrent tells Vercetti that the psycho survied Vercetti's attempts to kill him and was looking for them again. The band asks Vercetti to accompany them to their concert, which is only a hundred yards down the road in their limousine. Upon entering the vehicle, Percy finds a tape in the car and ask Vercetti to put it into the casette player. The tape is actually a message from The Psycho, who informs them that there is a bomb in the vehicle, which will detonate if the limo is driven at slow speeds.

Tommy drives the vehicle around Vice City at high speeds while the band members deactivate the bomb. After the bomb is defused, Vercetti then drives them to their concert in Downtown, where he accompanies the band on the stage shortly before their preformance.


The target is for the player to drive the limousine around the city at a certin speed while the band defuses the bomb. If the vehicle loses speed, then the bomb will explode, resulting in failure of the mission and death of the player.



The reward for completing Publicity Tour is $8,000. The Love Fist limousine will start spawning in front of the recording studio (PC version only).


  • In the original PlayStation 2 version of the game, the Love Fist Limo doesn't start spawning after completing this mission. However, in later versions, it does.
  • The mission is based in the 1994 movie Speed, where police detective Jack Traven tries to deactivate a bomb that will blow up if the bus goes less than 50 mph. Similar missions exist in the games Mafia and the Joe's Adventures DLC for Mafia II, namely "Speed Explosive Truck" and "Bomb Under the Seat", respectively. Both missions also involve driving a vehicle to a destination, while under the threat of a car bomb exploding if the vehicle goes too slow.
