Fan experiences are increasing in popularity. Eager fans are paying big bucks to meet their favorite musicians through services like BandPage. But what about long term “experiences”?

Some fans are willing to spend more than $6,000 to be buried among Celia Cruz, Miles Davis, and Duke Ellington. The demand is so great that the Bronx’s Woodlawn Cemetery  (the final resting place of these musicians) is expanding to meet demand.

2,275 burial plots are being added near Celia Cruz’s grave and the “Jazz Corner”, where many iconic Jazz musicians are buried.

Hopefully the cemetery’s future occupants will enjoy their $6,000 grave for year to come.
