Did it actually mention the Kiss concert by name, or was it just a generic
term like "all star concert" or something like that?  The days where the
Kiss concert was an instant sellout are gone...I dont' think it sold out
at all last year, and ticket sales have been sluggish for radio station
"mega concerts" in general for a couple years now.  Wasn't there some
discussion on this board about a year ago on several such concerts being
cancelled due to poor ticket sales?

That having been said, an oldies station seems an odd place to advertise a
concert aimed at an under 30 crowd.
