From my understand Allen Jackson wasn't charging as a performer. There are still costs to put the concert on. I am sure those that live in Mineral will have first come basis for the tickets. Like the report said, that aspect is still being hashed out.

"And some will have a price tag"...can we say false advertising?? Free concert is a free concert in my book.

The performer and Capitol Records got a lot of PR out of the "nationwide contest", let them cover all costs associated with the concert. Give residents first dibs on the tickets.

The free tickets should go to the residents who suffered any loss from the earthquake, and the kids that suffered this tragic event, any left over should then be first come first serve basis, that is the reason Alan Jackson is coming to the mineral area. Where were you when the world stop turning that hot August day:)

I love Alan Jackson and would love to go see the concert but that show in Mineral is bound to be cluster muck, unfortunately.

That's a lot of money, instead of someone singing a song.... Give it ALL to the school... It's not about what people WANT, it's about what we NEED...

The free tickets should go to black people to encourage them to listen to good country music instead of that foul mouthed disgusting noise they listen to.

No one ever said he tickets would be free.
A free concert means the performer will play for free.
The promoter/producer is covering some of the cost the county will have to cover what he doesn't.
A concert has cost involved, electricity,security,the roadies.....etc have to be paid.
A star of Alan Jackson's caliber usually runs about 75,000 dollars for a 90 minute show. the cost right now for the concert is around 200,000 dollars minus the performers fee.
The estimated revenue the show will produce for local business' is around one million dollars.

What part of ''free concert'' do you not understand. If it's not free then don't say it.

Lets look at free.
Free education but parents pay for the books, teachers, schools and everything else through taxes.
Buy one get one free but you can't buy just one for half price.
Free Concert means the performer performs for free, not that tickets will be free, the supporting people for the concert have to be paid.
Remember, nothing is ever free.

My neighbor just threw a free party. Didn't cost me anything.

I recently attended a free concert at UVA. My taxes, in part, paid for the construction of the concert hall and it's continuing operation.

I've been to dozens of free performances, in all types of venues, amateur and professional performers.

My taxes pay for the high school parking lot (horrible choice by the way, but the asphalt doesn't cost the performer anything) where they will set up.

There wasn't an asterisk in all the hype leading up to this 'free show', so the performer and/or it's promoter should pick up all costs associated with it.
