Episode 7. Discussion – To Tour or Not to Tour

On this episode of lo-fidelity, we discuss a decision every artist has to make: whether to tour or not to tour. Amongst the myriad of ways artists make this decision, we specifically address different categories of answers: artists who never tour, bands who quit touring for good but continue writing and recording music, bands past their prime that continue to tour (or paying a price for nostalgia), with an added bonus of a discussion on the recent phenomenon of album-anniversary tours. There are plenty of examples to learn from, but don’t forget you can always discuss your own stories and examples with us!

On this episode of lo-fidelity, we will be discussing the role artists play in political discourse. We will be listening to examples of artists who have written or performed protest songs, or politically-charged music, discuss the work of artists who participate in activism, and spend a little time mentioning those who have careers as politicians. Let us know if you can think of any examples where a song was a primary motivator for change in policy!
