    Since 2012, I've been replying with the same suggestion every year to no avail. Now, unfortunately, it will never happen as Tom Petty died last year. Keep flying Tom.

    Honestly, they probably get some publicity and sizzle from having a name act. I've been with people who made a point of visiting the concert, so it isn't like it is a loss.

    probably less than you think. A cover band making the biggest coin of their career is going to go all out and give 110% and still won't cost as much as big name who shows up late, plays 1/2 _$$ and leaves early.

    EAA pays $$ZERO for the Monday night concert so there is $$NOTHING to save. Ford sponsors it and they and others fully sponsor other nightly concerts and other entertainment throughout the week. Furthermore, there are sponsors for so many different events, programs, buildings, and just about anything else.

    If EAA could get a sponsor to put their logo on the port-a-potties they would do it. And if they could get sponsors for every expense they actually incur themselves, don't you ever believe that the admission prices would decrease. This is the cash cow and the cow refuses to be milked dry.

    I was there when Reo Speed Wagon performed. Got there early, had a nice spot to sit, good view of the stage with my cooler/camp stool. Then all these people came and stood in front of me, I couldn't see anything but ass. About 10 min. in, I just walked away before I caused a scene !

    Ford's been sponsoring the concerts for many years. They obviously believe they're getting the biggest bang for the buck with marketing benefits accruing.

    They could get Jerry's One Man Band out of retirement. If it's a concert that draws you to Oshkosh, then you are in the wrong place.....
