Which Acts Would Make Your Kids Rush the Stage?

Top Musical Performers Young Audiences Want to See

The changing economics of the music business have made live performances a primary focus for many recording artists and brands that want to associate with them

While the list of top-grossing concert tours includes many acts targeting baby boomers and their seemingly huge appetite for nostalgia, we wanted to see what opportunities exist for acts appealing to the younger crowd.  Using
E-Score Music’s “Extendibility” measurements, we looked at which live performances are the most sought-after by persons 13-24.
