I'm not trying to hate on MS but that's ummmmmm pretty crappy. They're spending a lot of money for really nothing special. Really sloppy marketing effort.

CeeLo Green was just down here in New Orleans for Jazzfest. Crowd was less than par for a supposed headliner if that's any indication.

Are you kidding me, my wife decided to pass by at 7:15pm and we were told anyone can see the concert as no wristbands were needed... maybe 500 people showed up. It was poorly advertised.
