Economic Recovery Hits the Tour Scene

This summer’s concert boom marks the first turnaround since the 2008 economic crash. According to Pollstar, North American concert sales were up 5.8% over 2014; Life Nation’s sales (through July) were up 7%; and AEG Live reported 26% gains at the box office. For the past few years promoters have struggled to find the right mix of price/artist for top acts though there have been higher box offices sales since 2013.
