My name is keith , I’m about to start promoting my 1st large concert. Building holds 12,000 ppl and avg ticket will be around 100$ that’s 1.2 mil if I can pack the house. I’m am likes no one u have ever seen, I was born in pensacola and know everyone, I can probably pull in 2500-3000 on my name alone. I’m willing to do all the leg work and out in the streets and make this dream come true. I sell cars for a living and just sold 52 last mo myself alone all retail sells no assistance. That should tell u who I am, and what I can do if I put my mind to it. I have liquid cash and can pull in an investor if ness. I’m thinking March for the concert gives me plenty of time to secure a artist in nov. and promote for 4 mos. I have doubts about doing so much work and the act not showing up, is there protection for me and my efforts? And how do many Arist charge I would like to put down a deposit to secure a large arist like Chris young, Brett young, Chris stableton etc etc then pay more towards the contract once ticket sells start comin in to free up my cash… can someone please break down what I need to know about achieving high levels of success on this show? I’m going allllllll in. Thx
Hi Keith, congrats on starting to promote your first large concert. As far as an act not showing up, this is what contracts are for which is to hold the artist liable if they don’t show up. Also, you can look at the artists history, to see if they have a history of missing concerts.
As far as the way artists charge. Agents “usually” ask for 50% up front then the back-end (other 50%) on the day of the event.
