Find Out How Artists Like Ed Sheeran, Madonna, and Coldplay Sustain Their Music Career Despite All the Drama
Do you still remember the time when you used to use your pen to backtrack your tape? Or the time when you used to carefully put the CD in the CD player because you didn’t want to scratch it?
It feels like a lifetime since we did those things ever since the music industry has gone digital nowadays. Vinyl, cassette tapes, and even CDs are going instinct. Luckily, we can still experience raw music via concert tours.
Concerts are beneficial for both the artist and the audiences. Fans can finally have a chance to watch their idols live, while the artists bank in fat paychecks. In fact, a huge part of their income comes from tours and live gigs. Plus, they get to experience a variety of cultures in the places they visit.
