“There is a real generational shift with regards to concerts,” Mike Jones wrote. “The older generation who go to these concerts grew up in an age where the concert experience was a part of life.” He worries that the live music business is missing the bigger picture. If teens and twenty-somethings are priced out of the experience early on, they won’t establish concert-ticket buying habits. Then, as they grow older and gain a disposable income, they won’t go and buy a ticket.

A very real, very valid concern.
