The City Manager said that when the City took over the Expo that the Management Group that has done a terrible Job would be fired.
Instead the City extended their Contract and the Expo has become worse than ever. The whole place is a joke now with lousy service and cancelled Concerts.
Great Job City of Pikeville.
well never fear, the beatles will save the day!!!
lmfao!!
the beatles impersonators...that is the big plan to save the expo and save face.
i seen huey lewis is coming to ashland.

it isnt that country doesnt sell, but its the country acts like rodney atkins or brantely gilbert or some of those that have been there several times already.
i would bet if jason aldean or zac brown or some bigger, more well known acts were to come to the expo, that ticket sales would be pretty decent.

Just because you don't see a lot of music venues there doesn't mean it isn't being used.

what is it being used for, storage???
i heard the court house was about to run out of room storing all the files they have on all the corrupt cops and lawyers, so i bet thats what the expo is being used for now.
that and the secret underground tunnels.
did you know that under the ground they have tunnels to the courthouse and the new one as well and they have full bar and strip club.
vip rooms too.

Now the area in front of the place is being utilized. The Main Street programs brings in different venues twice a month and it brings in a respectable crowd. The EXPO staff cooks, runs the bar and sells some stuff so at least that is some usage. Could have done the same thing with a parking lot but no matter, maybe do the Main Street Live late fall through winter inside, charge a small cover and sell some beer and food. Just a suggestion, try it and see if it works. The summer Main Street is free but in a recreation challenged place like Pikeville you might be able to charge a small cover in the winter!

I think the Expo Center has so far done what it was built to do... It's had a few decent concerts over the years, but I have to agree with most people when I say that whoever is managing the artists that are booked has a very biased taste in country music.

It was a very risky thing to do in such a small town, and of course it's going to have its economic down times, but I think it was and continues to be a key building in the future development of Pikeville.
