Bruce, TP, Santana is about it. There are more I'd pay not to see.

I stand corrected. I've seen both Tom petty and Carlos Santana before. Santana is the only one on this list that I would stand in line to buy tickets for. How times have changed.

At this point in their respective careers I would say probably just Santana and Bruce Springsteen and maybe James Taylor. All the others on that list that I like I have seen before, some multiple times and have no desire to see live anymore.

Depending on the venue and price - 8. I'm shocked that Juanes is on the list. I paid to see him and would definately do it again.

2 here. Its hard to believe that Chesney is pulling in almost $2,000,000 a city! That kind of money will keep ya on the road!! TP isn't doing too bad either. This has to include merchindise sold at the shows.

i am at maybe one, santana (only because i hear he is off of the pop deal). all though he is playing locally and i am going to pass.

I've seen Tom Petty at festivals, and not really my gig. I was kind of surpised to not see DMB or Buffet on the list (it wouldn't have changed my vote). I thought they were doing really good. Also these lists typically include the Rolling Stones and other popular classic rock bands, I guess they aren't touring much this year.

5, I think. I"ve paid to see Kenny Chesney before, and honestly I enjoyed the two openers much more than him.

There are 5 for me, and that's IF the price was right and I felt like going... I've seen some of them before.

Kind of wonder, once the ABB/Ratdog or ABB/P&Fs start touring what their "average box office gross per city" will be? I'm guessing at best about $150,000. One thing this chart showing is how off (except for the biggest act) this concert season is turning out to be. You would think with increased ticket prices, that "box office gross" would be much higher. But the fact of the matter is, with ticket prices going up, attendance is starting to drop. A year or two ago to make the top twenty, your average box office gross per city would have had to be around $400 or $500,000.

Here's a little survey we can take:

How many shows are you attending this years, and is it less or more or about the same from the number of shows you attended in previous years?

This year I'll probably see three shows all together (Tom Petty with Steve Winwood, Black Crowes with Grace Potter, and hopefully the Allman Brothers with Phil & Friends), in previous years I would probably be seeing six or eight shows during a Summer concert season.

I would pay reasonable price ... $25 - $50 ... for Santana ....
and maybe James Taylor cuz I never saw him.
Springsteen,T.P., Police,and VanHalen maybe with free
ticket and it didn't interfere with something else I might
wanna do.
The rest I don't think I would see in nearly any circumstance.

Saw the Police 3 times on this tour from the start, Tom Petty twice (with Steve Winwood) well worth the money, haven't missed a Rush tour since 1975 so money is no object and Santana any day of the week. The rest, whatever! As to the number of shows this year, about average (12-15). We just prioritize what ones, where and what the ammenities or the area are and then budget. If we are over we take from other areas, if we are under we stay at nicer hotels eat better etc. If ya love it you will find a way to do it.

planned or have tix for so far:
Gov't Mule
ABB (2)
John Hiatt (2)
Scrapomatic
Dickey Betts (3)
Zappa Plays Zappa

Bruce Hornsby
Farm Aid

So far this year I've seen Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, Lucinda Williams, Sonny Landreth, Steve Winwood, Jaimoe's Jasss Band, Little Richard, Chuck Berry

Juanes is a Columbian Pop/Rocker. I kinda equate him to John Mayer. He writes his own songs, plays guitar fairly well, but still leans toward the pop side. Also an involved humanitarian.

He's HUGE in the Latino community.
