It is not my cup of tea but I guess it is better than watching the same rugby or football team each week. The difference being that the people in the band stay the same, most of the time, whilst with sport we are watching a brand.
Ray’s site has masses of detail and is difficult for people with old eyes to read. Most of the people leavings comments on the BBC site are male. I guess it must be tribal! They all appreciate social network sites for keeping them up to date on the latest trends and gigs.
But soon we will be seeing one of the wonderful sights of the year – happy female shoppers with all the lovely bags and the biggest and brightest smiles anywhere. Much bigger than at any sports match of gig and they are gently glowing! You need to read Ray’s blog to understand the joy of still jumping down at the front of the stage and getting very hot and excited.
I wonder if there is much difference between the business plan resource used by people who promote gigs and sports matches?
