CJ,
To define "support" would be a tough one. Several concerts have been tried in the past with not much luck. The Great Divide and Head East, to name a couple. To do a major concert there are many things to consider, the largest issue is money. Who is going to be responsible for the make it break it bottom line, who will be the one to invest 20-100k and be able to loose it in the event of a disaster. Then we move on to the liability insurance, then sound and lighting contractors, riders, ticket cost, promotion, trussing, OSHA regulations, permits, minimum capacity riders...I could go on and on. I'm not trying to be negative, as we were going to have David Allen Coe and Rodney Carrington at one time, and KC and the Sunshine Band another time, but one or more of these issues squashed the idea. Putting on a concert is a major league trip to a vegas slot machine with your life savings in the business world, but on the other hand a smaller name band very well could be a possibility.
Good idea, see if you can spark some interest!
