The economy is in sad shape. But don’t tell the music biz.
USA Today says music heavyweights are expecting big returns on summer tours, despite a faltering financial outlook elsewhere.
Maybe folks just need to take a break from their worries.
Expect big-time gigs from Aerosmith, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, U2, the Dave Matthews Band, Elton John & Billy Joel, Green Day, Kenny Chesney, Kings of Leon, Phish and The Dead.
Say what you will, but music does have a tendency to heal. Maybe this is just what we need.
