A sell out
Have you got your $70 ticket to the SN Fan Awards at its new Dollywood location yet? Yeah, me neither (h/t, KD). But act fast. Karen Peck Gooch and Charlie Waller are predicting a sell out. Actually, 70 bucks ain’t a bad deal for parking, lunch, the awards show and Dollywood admission, assuming that flies your kite. You’d probably pay close to that for admission to NQC on the awards-show night, KFEC parking, dinner and overpriced snacks at Freedom Hall. Of course the Dollywood theme park attractions vs the post-show evening concerts at NQC is kinda apples and oranges as value-added comparisons go. But no matter, … there’s gotta be some sticker shock in bundling more or less the same costs into a single ticket. So I guess we shall see.
If I were a more enterprising blogger, I might suggest an interesting experiment in blogsourcing: like, say, having everyone email their favorite SN-Fan-Award nominated artist(s) and ask them if they’re going to the show or not and then report back on the results in comments. The answer probably depends on whether record labels or the SN/SGMA are comping or partially underwriting/discounting nominated artists’ tickets, I guess.
Incidentally, anybody know about how many seats are available in the Dollywood space where the awards show will be held?Email this Post
