Release for concert photos


I recently took photos at a concert for a friend at a public venue of her band and a couple of other bands. Do I have to have a release in order to sell/use these outside of just selling them to the bands?

  They may be sold for editorial use in a magazine, newspaper or book for educational usage without a model release. For anything else a release is needed.

The manager or band leader may have the authority to sign for the entire band but if not a release will be needed from each band member. If the photos are taken in your studio a release will be necessary since you have been paid to take the photos.
