Thank goodness this season has come to an end. I have had season ticket's for four years, and this is the worst yet. Not sure I'll renew next year.
This is a great venue that doesn't get used near enough. It sit's empty more than it's used.

I also thought Blues Traveler and even Tony Orlando put on good shows, albeit quite different. BB King, it was nice to see a Legend like him close up.

I also thought the spring series was good, the show I thought would be the best (the GA Satelites) was the worst.

I'm on my 3rd year of tickets, and I frankly don't see how to beat it for $29 per ticket, throw in free parking, and the fact it is a 1/2 mile from my house. Where else can you drive a golf cart to a concert?

I'm sure they could get bigger name talent, but the tickets wouldn't be as cheap.

Dawg - You hit it right on the head. The Fred selects talent based on a number of factors that include size of the venue, ability to sell tickets, affordability, whether they are touring in the general area, and or appealing to the majority of the population. Lets face it the Eagles, Buffett or similar acts will never come to Fred due to simple economics. The Fred is an awesome experience for the money and has plenty of variety. I have been going there for 15 years in my golf cart. Rock on!

I agree with you! I don’t understand the thought process when selecting the performers; the Fayetteville location is in the same boat. It’s a shame we still have to travel to North Atlanta to see the good performers.

Yeah, bring him. Then we can all read the complaints that the tix was $200. And then read how no one bought tix.
The same would go for a Whole Paycheck or a Trader Joe's. Harry (of Harry's in a Hurry) had his own problems, which probably had more to do w/ the store's downfall, BUT, I still didn't see any big time crowds.
There was a full scale Harry's in (gasp) Clayton Co, before the fall of civilization as we know it and it closed.
In Newnan the local butcher shop behind Loco's & near the Snake'n Shake closed. How may of you have gone to the Seafood store @ the Chevron on Robinson? What was that food store over by Arnie's liquors next to Mucklow's Jewelry?
Talk's CHEEEP.
