Look out for Michael Rice and the track Do You Love Me At All. It’s a big piano ballad, a melody and lyric that could come out of the mouth of Lewis Capaldi or Duncan Laurence.

He first made waves with a track that went viral on social media, and was spotted and invited to audition for a new BBC singing show ‘All Together Now’.

I purchased a ticket for hundreds of dollars and I don’t plan on going to the show. There are too many restrictions, variables, and unknowns.

I’m not alone. Many fans who dropped money on tickets aren’t showing up. No-shows at concerts are near 20%, while the UK is nearing 40%.

No shows hurt venues, promoters, and artists because they sell less merchandise and alcohol and they tend to overstaff. Veteran acts have been hit the hardest with significant no-show rates.

The once thriving UK live scene has turned into a ghost town. Artists have resorted to massive guests just to get people to show up

“You always had people that didn’t turn up,” said artist manager Graeme Stewart. “It was around 5% normally, but you’re getting as much as 40% no-shows for some gigs now. It’s an enormous problem, and it’s happening for anything that’s ticketed.”

In an era where artist are surrendering their masters and publishing, we now have Bruce Springsteen giving up his master recording and publishing rights to Sony for a price of $500 million.

Sony now owns all of his 20 studio albums, as well as Born To Run, The River and Born In The USA.

Springsteen’s music generated about $15m in revenue last year. Rob Stringer, CEO of Sony Music, said the company spent $1.4 billion in acquisitions in the previous six months.

Springsteen has been with Columbia Records since the beginning of his career and has long controlled the rights to his recordings.

Legendary songwriter Diane Warren says: “It’s something I would never do (selling songs). If they’re paying you 20 times what your catalog is worth, I could see why people would do it, especially if they need the money. I don’t need the money. “This is my soul and my soul wouldn’t be for sale at any price.”
