“We believe the internet is still failing artists like Indian Wells. It hasn’t yet radically changed the process they go through to go on tour. The industry is essentially the same as it has been since 1990 (with phone calls between agents and promoters being replaced by email). That is why I’m so excited that we are using Detour to bring Indian Wells to London, for his first ever show outside of Italy. Via the community on Detour we raised 23 pledges to buy tickets – 23 people who stepped up and said ‘if you come, I’m in’, which is enough for us and our promoter partner to confirm a show, and bring him to London to the Shacklewell Arms. The show is at a weekend because it has to be around his day job in Italy. Tickets will go onsale 2pm Friday at https://detour-ldn.songkick.com/events.”
This is the future, can’t wait to see it with my eyes.
