As of early last week, all tickets for Rock ‘N Roll Revival XIX — which opens this Friday night — were sold out. That’s six shows seating around 1,000 people at $12/ticket, grossing over $70,000. That doesn’t include merchandise, concessions, flowers, or another of the other things that people will buy. Not too shabby for […]
