Austin Is The Most Popular City for concerts According To Eventbrite

untitled

I seldom write about television and the reason is simple enough: I work in the television busiess and half my life I spend up to my ears in Nielsen, demos, impressions and CPPs. By the time I am done for the day it is no longer how I want to relax.

Just two days ago I was working on a schedule for a funeral company in Austin, looking for Women 55 +, and was shocked to discover there weren’t very many. Maybe 5% of the market tops. The median age of people who live there is 30 years of age, and that explains why Austin  is the # 1 market for live concerts, according to Eventbrite (the place I bought my Governors Ball tickets, I might add) as reported by Hypebot…

Most Event-Going Cities in US:

Eventbrite analyzed hundreds of thousands of tickets sold to events of all types in America’s 25 largest cities in 2014, which surfaced America’s most outgoing cities.

  1. New York City, NY
  2. San Francisco, CA
  3. Austin, TX
  4. Los Angeles, CA
  5. Chicago, IL
  6. Houston, TX
  7. Boston, MA
  8. Dallas, TX
  9. Philadelphia, PA
  10. San Diego, CA

OK, so I guess the reason is: youngsters go to concerts, while old folks like me are two old and tired. I hope  that clears it up for yall and see you at the Ariana Grande gig and I’d leave it at that except, eventbrite is’t Ticketmaster and my feeling is it is more of a boutique ticket broker, catering to hipsters and not that big time venues we have here so take another look: Austin a bigger Country market than Nashville and Houston?
