    Beam stretchers and sky hooks, but they cost even more money than reinforcing the columns!

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    After looking at how terrible of a job the Fargodome management is doing at booking concerts, I don't think we should give them a penny for upgrades. Why would they suddenly be able to book conventions when they can't even book routable concerts off of Minneapolis?

    Check out all the concerts in Sioux Falls. They have more concerts in 2019 than we've had in probably 3 years. I'm starting to question the Fargodome by getting rid of that national management company because they could actually book some real shows.

    Whatever we are doing, it's not at all competitive with Sioux Falls. Heck, Grand Forks gets as many or more shows than we do. Someone needs to get fired.

    Plus Sioux Falls can fit in an entire USHL hockey season, Sioux Falls Storm, and the Summit League Tournament into the schedule as well

    So far I've had to drive to other cities for The Foo Fighters and Metallica because the Fargodome sucks at booking.

    Bluestem, Scheels Arena and the Dome they get plenty of shows

    Also you will notice the dome generally gets the bigger name shows or newer stars

    Pink
    Bruno
    Timberlake
    Shine down
    Ect..

    Concerts are a tough gig still, promoters would rather do multiple shows in larger metros than 100 nights all over.

    You are probably right on that. But the point trying to be made is that Sioux Falls and GF are not larger metro areas either.
