There are at least three reasons why someone might pay five or ten or a hundred times more to see a concert than the CD costs (not to mention the value difference: you can listen to the download again and again but the live gig is gone forever):
There are people around you, fellow travelers, magnetic energy, shared joy.
Something might go wrong. The artist is like a tightrope walker, taking big chances and the drama it creates is engrossing.
You might be surprised. Something new and wonderful might happen and it might jar you awake.
And yet, people in the ‘live’ business–restaurants, people doing presentations, building material suppliers–often work hard to avoid getting anywhere near any of the three. That is a shame. Our clients want “LIVE”. They want all you have to offer and they want the best! It creates the most loyalty and the most value! The question is “Are you LIVE”?
