Billboard’s Top 25 Tours of 2011…So Far
Musicians, have you followed our previous advice to keep up with goings-ons in the music industry? If so, you probably already read this, if not – listen up! If you want to make a living as a musician in the 21st century, touring is going to be a huge component of that. That was one of the things we took from Drummers Reality Camp 2011; often times touring pays the bills.
According to Billoard, the top 5 touring artists are – U2, Roger Waters, Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, and Usher. What an interesting mix of old and young. Notice that the top two tours were giant spectacles, with the U2 360 tour and Roger Waters with “The Wall”. Another thing we noticed is that there were no independent artists in the top 25, which isn’t unusual.
