Where my fans come from (2017), and how it reflects on gigs • INGO VOGELMANN
As you might know, I do some analysis from time to time. Here’s the Top 10 of where my fans come from, and a few comments from myself to it: 1 Germany — Actually surprising. 2 Hungary — Not surprising at all, just played 5 gigs in 1 week there. Hungarians have and incredible connection to the music I love (and do). 3 United States of America — Very surprising, in a way. Getting gigs in the US is really difficult (for me). Promoters aren’t willing to take risks and pay decently. Probably the country is also just geographically too big to get folks attending a gig with a dude like me, although I had great gigs in L.A. and Philadelphia already. 4 Argentina — Comparable to the people in Hungary, just 18 hours more flight, and 1000 € more flight costs, so I get relatively many booking requests that unfortunately seldom work out. But, believe it or not, we’re working on a (realistic) mini tour right now, as we speak. If all goes well I’m touring Argentina in July 2017. 🙂 5 United Kingdom — Been booked there once in my life. But hey: also in talks for a gig in London right now as well. If all goes well: July 2017! 6 Turkey — Oh my… I receive hundreds of booking requests from Turkey every year, and it NEVER worked out. Musically Turks have the same affection for my stuff as the Hungarians and Argentinians do, but for some reason we can’t work out gigs. I don’t get it. MANY requests, no outcome. What a pity. :-/ I hope this changes ASAP. 7 Greece — See above (Turkey).…
