London is some way behind, apparently.
A survey by Boston Consulting Group, finds that the music industry contributes $21 billion to New York’s economy, accounting for 60,000 jobs, and a $5 billion wage bill.
More tickets are sold to live music in New York City – 5.4 million in 2015 – than anywhere else. London sold 4.2 million, Los Angeles 1.7 million.
