An odd confluence of circumstances surrounding farewell tours for legendary musicians is making for a lucrative industry.
In recent years, some of music’s biggest names like Elton John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Kiss have decided to hit the road for the last time to bid farewell to millions of screaming fans.
The winning combination of baby-boomers looking to relive their youth one last time and the younger generation wanting to see the legendary performers before it’s too late is making old rockers very rich.
In 2018 the concert box office raked in $5.65 million.
No wonder it’s hard for these superstars to leave the stage and their millions of adoring fans behind for good, so expect the same people to keep retiring over the decades.
