73-year old Neil Diamond will perform in April. And beside this rock icon, there are others performing in the next year. Pearl Jam, James Taylor, country sensation Hunter Hayes, Fleetwood Mac, and The Who. They're actually performing as part of their 50th anniversary tour.
Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development at the Bradley Center, Paul Jansen, says he's still amazed with all the legacy bands coming to town and performing at his venue. Jansen wouldn't get specific about what kind of money it took to get the big named acts here or even the revenue these musicians would bring to the area. But he did say a majority of what's made in ticket sales goes back to the artist.
We also spoke with the Pabst Theater and was told these shows at the Bradley Center are only a huge positive for the entire arts community. However, the folks at the Bradley center say despite the great name recognition, it's doubtful any of these concerts will be sold out because of all the many music venues to choose from here in town.
