Yeah, but who the fuck wants to see Lionel Ritchie in 2008? You think people are going to shell out 75 bucks to hear the theme from White Nights?
When I was living with my parents after Katrina, Lionel Ritchie came to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. My mom loves Lionel, but the cheapest tickets were $150. We didn't get tix, but that shit sold out!
So, yeah, apparently LOTS of people are willing to shell out $150 to see Lionel. I saw him at Jazzfest a few years ago. He played ALL the hits and Ray Nagin was dancing at the side of the stage the whole time. Oh, what a feeling!
