Can you be a famous singer without doing concerts?

Would it be possible to become a famous singer while refusing to do concerts?

    I suppose that's possible.  But, I would think that a singer would want to take advantage of every available venue to showcase their talent and grow their fan base.

    Unless the singer owns their own recording label, concerts is where the performers make the majority of their money. It isn't by selling records. Nearly all that money goes to the record company.

    That's like becoming President without campaigning. The biggest problem with your premise is that now that selling recorded music is so difficult, with all the free access to billions of songs by competitors and other genres, that the average starting singer or musician can only make bigger money with a live performance.

    No, it's not possible but I suspect it's nothing for you to be concerned about.

    I suppose you could but there aren't many famous singers who don't do concerts. Singers actually make their money from concerts. Record companies make money from recordings. Most artist don't receive that much from recordings.

    The problem is that records, tapes, and CDs are pretty much dead. Everything is streamed or stolen. Most of the money is made in concerts.

    Kate Bush has only toured one time (1979) in almost 40 years of being a recording artist.
