They Can't All Be Bon Jovi

Who doesn't love a good summer concert? Every year you can count on your favorite band/artist taking it out on the road for the big summer festival or extended tour that takes them from Tokyo to Tulsa. Normally bands load up on the summer dates and cash in the big $$$$$$. Not this summer. Seems that more than a few concert goers have decided to stay home and watch Dancing With the Stars reruns instead.

I bet you will have more than a few students in your class that are really into music. Share this article early on in the new semester (school is right around the corner everyone!). Use it to introduce some basic economic principles.
