Case 1-75 CONTINUING PROBLEM: FRONT ROW ENTERTAINMENT

Cam and Anna met during their freshman year of college as they were standing in line to buy tickets to a concert. While waiting in line, the two shared various aspects of their lives) Cam, whose father was an executive at a major record label. was raised in New York Some of his favorite memories were meeting popular musical artists-from the Rolling Stones to the Black Eyed Peas-as he accompanied his father on business trips. Anna. on the other hand. was born and raised in a small. rural town in southern Georgia. Her fondest childhood memories involved singing with her family. who often performed at county fairs and other small events, Even though they had different backgrounds, they felt an instant bond through their shared passion for music. Over the next couple of years, this friendship strengthened as they attended numerous concerts and other events together.

While on a road trip to see a new hand during their senior year, Cam and Anna started discussing their future career plans. Both had an entrepreneurial spirit and were seeking a way to combine their majors in business with their passion for music. Cam had recently overheard his father discussing how many artists were unhappy with the current concert promoters. Anna had heard similar complaints from her cousin. whose band recently had their first top 25 hit. When Cam suggested that he and Anna form a concert promotion business. they both knew they had found the perfect careers.

Typically. this includes booking the venue, pricing the tour. advertising the tour. and negotiating other services from local vendors. In general. the barriers to entry in the concert promotion industry are relatively low. with one of the more important items being forming a relationship with the various artists. Through their industry contacts (Cam’s father. Anna’s cousin]. they felt that they could develop a client list relatively easily. A second major barrier would be to obtain the up-front cash necessary to promote the tour properly.
