    Mumford & Sons Coming to my Hometown

    They are coming to Troy, Ohio for a two day concert at the end of August as part of the "Gentlemen of the Road" four city event. Just wondering if anyone at Redszone was going to make the trip here?

    This is probably going to end up being the biggest event ever to happen for my town. We only have a population of 25,000 people and the city is expecting over 35,000 fans to come in for the weekend, generating an estimated $12.6 million in revenue for the region. It's going to be epic.

    If anyone has any questions about the area, just ask. I know all of the local watering holes and restaurants.

    Similarly, if anyone needs recommendations, let me know. I grew up mere minutes from the venue.

    Sadly, I couldn't land tickets - they sold out quickly.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Wow, that's awesome. I've been waiting for them to come by here. I hope to be there. They're my #1 choice of bands I want to see live.

    I will be there. Saw them last year in Columbus. They put on a great show. Since it's close enough to Cincy, it's an easy drive up and back each day.

    Just looked at ticket prices. Holy smokes! For 2 tickets, it's nearly $600. I'll just continue listening to their cd's.

    I've seen Mumford & Sons twice (at nowhere near $600, I might add) and both shows were phenomenal. Troy, OH is in for a treat.

    The face of the tickets are $109, which is a great deal IMO because that includes the Friday night concert, and the all-day Saturday concert. The camping experience will be a lot of fun because they are turning the entire river levee into a campground, which is near the stadium where the concert is.

    It sounds like the entire downtown area is going to become a big festival also and there will be additional events going on besides the concert itself.

    Troy did a lot of work to make this happen, it's going to be a great weekend.

    Maybe I am crazy, but live music almost always disappoints.

    Depends on who you see, the venue you go to, and the crowd around you.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    The venue and crowd really don't matter for me. I want to hear music. Sure, I guess some venues with TERRIBLE sound systems could be an issue. But really, I just want to listen to the music and listening to live music often disappoints. Maybe I just expect to much.

    In my experience, the venue/crowd factor is at least as important as who takes the stage. But then, I consider a concert to be about more than just the music entering my ears...

    Yeah, I get that. I just don't view/hear music that way. Music for me is all audio.

    With the music I listen to, I usually love the live version much more than I do studio album versions...

    Live music better. Bumperstickers should be issued.

    I've been to at least 500 concerts. Very few have disappointed me
