New renters and visitors every year buy the tickets

Maybe the tickets sell because a captive audience with no choice. Give them a choice and the same old shows probably wouldn’t sell.
It worked in Branson.

I think that's why all my previous wives left me.
Same old show, year after year!

I'd be interested in suggestions as to what kind of acts people would like to see, either at The Savanna Center or The Sharon. Also, let's be reasonable, Billy Joel, Elton John or Bruce Springsteen are just a ways out of the budget.

I'll throw out a few:

Jackson Browne
Jethro Tull
Boz Scaggs
Seals and Crofts
Frankie Vali

Your Turn.
How about some jazz. Manhatten Transfer!

That would have to be quite literally a revival and would probably even make the front page of The Happy News.

There are 128,000 people in the Villages and the Savanna Center holds about 950 and the Sharon a little over 1000 How many shows would it take for everyone who wanted to see a group to be able to. If the group is good the shows sell out if they didn't they would not keep having them back.

I remember a few years ago that Willie Nelson was scheduled at $250 per ticket. He canceled because he had the "flu" and appeared at Silver Springs State Park for a general admission of $35. We went to see him for $35 but I wouldn't for $250 no matter how much I like him.
