On Music Think Tank Open, contributor Andy Malloy has written a couple of posts about Fan-Driven-Private-Concerts. In the first post, Andy talks about the model. In the second post, he covers justification for the model and the marketplace opportunity.
Fan-Driven-Private-Concerts seems like a great idea to me. Could this be one of the next big things (revenue opportunity) that all artists should be looking at right now?
What works? What's needed? How can the vision be refined? Would you like to have all of the dates on your calendar filled by fans staging private concerts?
Artists considering this model should also be reading Steve Lawson's blog.
