Yeah, there's something about tour dates, for it seems that the more you have, the more you want. Once you get the schedule for Murder By Death, you want the routings for Anne Murray and Mariah Carey. It's a never-ending circle of lust, greed, desire, want and envy. In fact, tour dates are often like watching the latest news about Michael Jackson. No matter how much you've seen, you just can't turn away from that next report.
But as we enter this holiday season, we want to take the time to remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves, for throughout the world there are people who can't have all the tour dates they want. They have to choose between having the routing for Arrogant Worms and putting food on their table. They have to decide between getting the latest dates for Shania Twain and clothing their children. For some people, tour schedules have to take a backseat when it comes to necessities like iodized salt and irradiated milk. Yes, for some people the need for tour dates pales when compared to the eternal fight against goiters and rickets.
What can you do? The truth is there isn't much that can be done for those suffering from lack of concert routings. Sure, you can send them the schedule for Fleetwood Mac, or the updates for Curtis Salgado and matchbox twenty, but what about tomorrow? And the next day? Come next week, who will give them the dates for Celine Dion, Elton John and Phil Collins?
That's why we're asking for your help. For a wise man once said, "give someone the schedule for Sting, and he has tour dates for the day. Teach that person how to look up the itineraries for Sheryl Crow, Mannheim Steamroller and Jane's Addiction, and he'll have tour dates the rest of his life." You can be the teacher AND the giver. Ten dollars makes it all possible.
That's right. Give them the gift of Pollstar Premium. They'll have all the tour dates they need, including the routings for George Carlin and Chris Rock, and you'll have the peace of mind knowing that you've changed someone's life for the better. That's what the holidays are all about.
Oh, and you also might want to give them some iodized salt and irradiated milk. You know, just to cover all the bases.
