I hate major labels as much as the next guy, but their representatives do hold the keys to some pretty big doors. In my experiences, unless you were a MASSIVELY successful band, you probably couldnt get yourself into some markets of the world without help from said labels or individuals.
Hmm, I hadn't thought about that. You raise some good points.

On the other hand, you could see mega-concerts as an artifact of mega-labels. If gigantic record labels (man, even the phrase "record labels" sounds so archaic) ceased to exist, and if people really wanted the experience of world-touring bands, some small-scale entrepreneurs would no doubt find a way to pull it off. A bunch of cavemen could accomplish what the dinosaur used to do.
