Why BandPage is Gonna Be Big

BandPage?  What’s this all about?

Think of it as a merch store on meth and steroids.  Instead of just selling standard music swag, it sells experiences.  From Digital Music News:

George Clinton is selling a meet and greet for $150 a pop at each stop on his tour. Ozzy Osbourne sold a 4 pack of premium tickets and meet and greets for $4,000.  You could watch Third Eye Blind’s soundcheck, get a ticket to the show, have a meet and greet, a t-shirt and signed set list for $200 on their last tour.

You can buy an autographed guitar from Stars for $450 or challenge Jana Kramer in a game of ping pong, hang out at the venue and get a bunch of other swag for $60.

I like it.  Keep reading.
