with the prices they charge for admission to events, theres no reason for the civic center to be in the shape that it is in

Tickets are $47.50 and $32.50 plus service charges, with front row VIP seats available for $250.

Kenny Rogers will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at the Asheville Civic Center to benefit the New Life Center, whose mission is to build a multipurpose chapel for prisoners at the Buncombe Correctional Center.

Now someone please tell me if they would pay that price to sit in the civic center?

And then have Kenny Rogers go home and tell everyone what a piece of crap our civic center is>

Are you listening Bellamy?

How do you think he is going to pay for that new face?

Well, I don't know his retirement plans, hope this ain't it.
I'll assume he is filling seats elsewhere.

He's become a home designer and builder in Atlanta, where he bought a 7 acre homesite, and then leveled all the trees...the neighborhood is really pissed off with Kenny...I think maybe that last facelift affected his brain...eyes pulled too tight...

Thanks for the inside scoop. That is so cruel. He
best not consider moving here. His home in Atlanta
will slide if it rains anymore.

The surgery affected his brain due to the anethesia!

Maybe Asheville can take out bonds, go into big debit, build, issue stocks, and crap its pants just like in 1929.
Notice how Asheville was a ghost town until the debit was paid, 1983,4,5?

They need to donate the money for a new Electric Chair at Raleigh Central. Now that would be a worthy cause.

I would donate to that cause, but only if they were really going to use it.

All you rednecks are just mad that the tickets are out of your budget, you know you love Kenny Rogers ( i mean you make the kids put on their suday best clothes when you visit the resturant)........

I'm sure the cops can just rob some minorites they pull over for the money to see Kenny..........

Watch who you call redneck. You cannot spell,
and possibly cannot read on a 12 grade level.

The folks around here just do not think Kenny is worth the price.

And since this is not your town, SHUT UP.

Who you kidding....most minorites don't have any money. Well that is unless the goverment gave them some but as soon as they get that they will just buy crack or 40oz beer.
How about defining minorities. Since Asheville has
had numerous ethnic groups move here, you are assuming that "generalizing" is just fine.

Well you are incorrect.

Or an upgraded gas chamber. And some real folks
to do the lethal injections.

But the criminals will start screaming that it is cruel and unusual punishment. Along with their wimpy lawyer.
