Charting The Scene

June 23, 1996|Steve Hochman

Which summer concert tour is generating the most interest? According to the people looking for information on the World Wide Web site run by concert business trade magazine Pollstar, it's Alanis Morissette's.

Her itinerary has by far been the one downloaded the most from the site for the past two months.

That kind of information could be useful to agents and promoters planning concert activity, Pollstar's staff believes. So they're going to start publishing a chart next month featuring the Top 20 in terms of interest.

"It's just another indicator of what people want to see," says Pollstar Editor in Chief Gary Bongiovanni. "Right now there are about 750,000 hits [visits] to our site per week, with hundreds of thousands each month requesting tour itineraries."
