  • Changes In The Music Industry

    For musicians, it's the best of times and it's the worst of times. Streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify are booming, helping the long-suffering music industry grow for the first time in decades. But these new services make very little money for artists, with ephemeral streams paying out only a fraction of the revenue...

    nowadays try and find a cheap seat to any concert, I don't know how the kid in HS/college can swing it. back in the day, record labels would send their artist out on tour to support the record and concert revenue was only gravy, record sales are what that bought in the big bux. I've got a box full of old ticket stubs from shows i attended from the late 70s through the 80s. most are stamped between $20 and $50, without exception all were loge or floor seats and many were in the first 20 rows - these were for top rock acts of the day.

      The vast majority of concerts with expensive tickets do not feature artists high school (or even college) kids are interested in hearing. The younger musicians tend to have much more affordable access to their concerts.

      Reminds of that scene in La La Land - have to go on tour to support the record.... then go on tour again for the record... it's a vicious cycle for today's musicians, and for that matter, yesteryear's musicians... Unless you're Willie Nelson who lives on tour.

        What has the influence been of Las Vegas and Branson and their semi permanent shows. I know when Circe du Soleil were traveling Big Tops (like their circus namesakes) which would visit for a few days and move on. Now there are a bunch of permanent shows in custom built theaters on the strip casino/hotels.

          Cirque still tours every year or two besides the permanent Las Vegas shows.

        Selfishly, it's been great for us here across the Pacific. We never got the big acts. Now they come with regularity to South East Asia. Now if we could only get the class Jazz acts to travel past Tokyo......

          For Fagen, I see it as payback or karma for all the years in the 1980s when Steely Dan refused to tour.

            I've see Fagan and Becker in Toronto maybe 2x in the last 4 years here in Toronto. Becker spent a lot of time sitting- he had a hard life. The supporting cast was excellent and the show was certainly enjoyable.
