Festival / Tour Tickets
Festival/Tour Concert Tickets
Not many people realize this, but the radio and the record store are not driving the band’s financial survival. No, groups of every genre male their living endearing themselves to fans on tour and at music festivals (which is becoming an increasingly popular mode to reach the all-important tipping point).
This is not to denigrate the act of purchasing the albums or to suggest musicians are playing to sell out. Rather, they are playing because they love to perform and love to entertain a room full of fans, whether that room is a side stage at a summer music festival or an arena while on tour. So, yes technically everyone wants to sell out tour tickets and music festival tickets, but only to enjoy the moment when the experience becomes a symbiotic experience of joy, ego, and ear-gasms.
