Last night my good friend Nev Copland gave me a very expensive ticket to the Eagles at Mt Smart. A highlight was when the crowd chimed in on Hotel California and seemed to know every word of it.
The ticket prices were insane. I had no idea that the showbiz world had managed to schmoooze so much hard earned bread out of ardent punters. Would you pay 700 plus for a ticket? Even a cheap seat was close to 150.
The Eagles are no doubt gifted musicians but their management is pure genius in being able to persuade 70 thousand people to pay HUNDREDS each for a ticket 6 months in advance.
What a gravy train! All costs returned and a MASSIVE profit IN ADVANCE. Two nights could return close to 20 million excluding merchandise and sponsorships etc. It’s nuts.
It don’t take Einstein to work out that there is something overshadowing music here.
I think I will apply for a job like that. Let you know how I get on.
Anyone got the chords to Hotel California? I understand there is plenty of room there. Book me in please.
Want to say a big thanks to Jonathan G for making videos of my songs. If you have time have a look at his work. Here they are below.
