can't wait to see .38 special @ Finley.
here's the deal. R&B has cornered the club market. One of the most powerful promoters in the southeast (if not the country) books acts for T29, & damn near every show put on in the Pavilion (adjacent to Finley) bleeds red ink.
I like the idea of concerts in Finley Stadium,..... 10 years ago.
Bryan, Got you on the club scene; Pavilion statement makes sense, but are you saying T29 is bleeding red ink? Seems they have had a pretty good run so far. I know the players there have some deep pocket availability, but it LOOKS like they have done ok.
As far as the concert venue for Finley being some kind of "new", light bulb moment idea, I laughed when I read that. Concerts were supposed to be a big part of what Finley was going to be about when it was first pitched as a catalyst for the Southside. Anyone who was around when it opened knows after the first Monster Truck event there that ruined the field it doomed use of the facility for any event that required access to the playing surface. Oh, yeah, that and the fact the the folks who were in charge of the so-called PSL seating and stadium management at that point in time didn't have a clue....about anything...trust me...I WAS a PSL holder...it was a joke. I will give the folks running it now a much better grade for their management knowledge. And it doesn't hurt that the Mocs have a decent football team that people will come watch.
