Youtubers are the new artists

In Norway there’s a tradition of big artists releasing their new album and then touring the country, going from shopping mall to shopping mall. Big lines pile up with screaming kids and parents waiting to be entertained.

Security would have to escort the artists backstage, on to the stage and keep the crowd under control while the artists signed their albums after the show.


I see the same thing these days, only the artists have almost disappeared. Now it’s popular gamers or bloggers from YouTube that are creating big lines of screaming fans. Security is even tighter than when a best-selling artist is visiting and the lines are even longer to get an autograph.

Interesting how things change, yet so much stays the same.
