I considered going to the THE MICRO HEAD 4N’S gig in London this year. I’m a big fan of Zero and Tsukasa who are ex-members of D’espairsRay. (D’espairsRay concert in Sweden 2009). But the London gig has been cancelled…!
Information from Torpedo productions:
“Due to the really low sales of tickets for a few dates of the upcoming tour, we didn’t had any other choice than to cancel the 3 last shows of the tour.
The shows of MILAN, LONDON and PARIS are CANCELLED.
The whole tour could have been cancelled, but we think that it would have been unfair for the numerous fans in the other countries, who would have been penalized.
Plus the band really wants to meet their fans all over the world, so we are counting on you to welcome and support them the best you can.”
Well, now I feel pretty low. Without the support of the fans, a band can’t survive. I should have bought my ticket… Probably it wouldn’t have made any difference, but anyway. 😦
There’s four main actions I can do to support a band I like:
- Inform others about them. Promote them.
- Buy their CDs and DVDs.
- Attend to their concerts.
- Buy merchandize.
Most of these things depends on your economic situation, so they are the tough ones. When it comes to concerts overseas, you even have to regard costs concerning living and travels.
But we can all inform others – for free – on the Internet. Hence I think it’s strange that some companies won’t let their artists’ promotion-videos be available on YouTube and such. A lot of people – maybe a majority – find new music that way. It’s a great tool for promotion.
It’s in the start-up-phase of a band when they need your support the most, so if you like something. Do something about it to keep it. ^^
If you’re a fan – you actually have responsibilities.
I wish all luck to THE MICRO HEAD 4N’S in the future.
