Is there a band you’d like to see reform? Would you like to see a major band play for a select audience? Then owngig.com might be the site for you. You say who you would like to see and how much you’re willing to pay and if there are enough people interested owngig will attempt to make it happen.
I know some bands have used this approach, but if owngig.com can link their site into existing social networking communities such as Last.FM, Facebook, and MySpace, they could be on to a real money spinner.
Somehow I don’t think there’s enough money in the world to change Robert Plant’s mind and join the rest of Led Zeppelin on tour. (I’ll be posting Lotusphere related Plant story later today)
