If it is at all possible to OD on concerts, I think I may have accomplished that in 2017. When I tally up the number of concerts I attended in 2017 alone, it outnumbers the total numbers of concerts I attended in the 5 years prior to 2017. It is very possible the reason I attended so many concerts this year is because of the press passes and VIP treatment; but I mean c'mon son, it's VIP.
There are very few artists these days that I sing the praises of. There are very few artists who continue to push the envelope whether artistically or business-wise. Ryan Leslie IS one of those artists. Ryan Leslie is one of the most innovative artists of this millennium and continues to show artists how to prosper without the support of a major label.
