Show promotions are tricky. We speak from experience. Just earlier this month, for example, The Daily Item drew a crowd nearly the size of Bucknell's concert, with fans buying $6 and $8 tickets. All performers showed up, went the distance, voiced no complaints about lighting or sound, could be seen and heard from the deepest seats and even smelled in the first few rows.
It has been decades, knock wood, with no Lupe Fiasco-size problems yet with donkey basketball.
