Pollstar is a concert tour industry's leading trade publication that gets its information primarily from the agents, managers and promoters who are producing concerts. Founded in 1981, it essentially purloined the format, including active touring itineraries of popular musical attractions, innovated by Performance Magazine, which pioneered this trade magazine niche out of Ft. Worth, TX starting in 1971. Pollstar, based in Fresno, California, won a war of attrition with Performance, which abruptly ceased publication in 1999. Pollstar presently has an office in London with correspondents in six countries. Pollstar is also a member of the Associated Press (AP). Its services are subscription based, distributed worldwide and include the weekly magazine as well as the online databases. Pollstar also held an award ceremony annually to honor artists and professionals in the concert industry.
