In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – In this full-length version of an interview recorded in October 2007, Jeff Dorenfeld, Associate Professor of Music Business/Management at Berklee College of Music, discusses many aspects of the concert tour industry — from who the major players are, who makes money off a live date and how merchandise works, to how independent artists can use touring and the resources of the industry to give their careers a boost. He also relates a history of the concert business in the USA in the last forty years, to put the current state of affairs into context.
