Obama was booked yesterday in the Folly Theater in Kansas City.

Tix at 250 went to about 400 seats of 1100, and the drop (99) only got em to 650.

 

 

Words of wisdom to a would be star:

"You have your whole life to write your first album, and 8 months to write the second."

 

Its over.

I'm surprised they got that many people to pay 99 dollars to listen to the telepromter.

 

If they wanted to fill the theater they should have offered rotten tomatoes at the door.

Freebie crowd.

If you offer 1100 seats for sale, sell 600 tix and withdraw the remaining 500, you are posted as a sellout. You also owe for the withdrawn tickets.

The box office got several hundred tickets back.

The Eagles pulled 8 more dates yesterday.

Rock n roll was soft last year, its very close to crash n burn this year.

View PostI've never been a big fan of sitting Presidents doing these paid fund raiser events. It demeans the office.

 

Oh come on, he's got to get his "shout outs" in.
