…I’m seriously just going to say “fuck it” and redirect this blog to Bob Lefsetz’. I keep meaning to link to a few of his articles, but he puts up awesome ones pretty much at the rate of one per day. If you’re interested in the music industry and where it’s going, you really need to be reading his stuff.
But here’s an idea that’s really interesting to me: Season concert passes. (I know, that’s not QUITE the point of the post, but I found it a fascinating idea.) If the Gorge sold them, I’d buy one. As it is, I’m almost as turned off by the hassle of having to fight for tickets or buy them off auction sites as I am by the price. If I could by one ticket in March for every show I wanted to see between then and October, I’d be willing to pay pretty handsomely for it.
What do you folks think: could venues have a successful season ticket business? I imagine it’d depend on the venue; are there any venues for which you, personally, would by a season pass?
