Music for old people... I guess that's what sells nowadays.

Hasn't that always been the demographic of audiences, the late teens / 20's will be at festivals and the little un's watching groups like Little Mix

So which of those are the old people?  Huh I think it's to do with rock and pop being mature art forms with artists having longer careers, as evidenced by Rod Stewart and The Spice Girls, or even Massive Attack, and the shift in bulk of disposable income from youngish to oldish as BNM pointed out. And that people in their 40s, 50s or even 60s tend to be in better health and fitness than in previous decades and don't want to stop doing what they've been doing for decades (ie gigging).

My son will probably go to the Muse gig. I might ask him to get me a ticket too - I think I'll be away when they go on sale, and they won't take long to sell.

Is this the end of the Bristol Arena altogether?

Article in today's BBC news...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-46140268

The worrying part being;

Cardiff's and Bristol's councils have been trying to create a venue that would attract major acts and fans from south Wales and the south west of England for a long time.

A scheme next to Temple Meads station was first mooted in 2003, but was scrapped in September, with Bristol's mayor calling the 150m project "too risky"

The first town plan. An idea that had legs.

It would be nice to think that this was a sign of greater co-operation within the Severnside region... Cardiff gets the arena, Bristol gets the airport...

Sir. Does this mean that Ann-Margret's not coming?
