Las Vegas shooting

Daily blog: From a San Fransisco newspaper: "The Las Vegas concert shooting that killed dozens and injured hundreds Sunday weighed heavily on the minds of concert and festival organizers heading into an event-packed week in the Bay Area and spurred some ambivalence among those who long planned to attend the myriad festivities." Do you think the recent event will affect attendance at the outdoor concerts planned for Golden Gate Park? What are some things event organizers could do to reassure people who may be changing their mind about attending the festival?

Safety is a major key when deciding on where to go or what you're doing. If I had been planning on going to a concert and something like this happened then I definitely would not be going. If I did decide to go I would be paranoid the whole time I was there and I wouldn't be able to enjoy the concert. I think that this event will affect attendance at outdoor concerts because many people will have fear of it happening again. Event organizers could have more security teams there or build a something like a pavilion. They also could have many buildings around for safety purposes.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.
