I'm not jumping down your throat at all. Just stating facts.
However, per the quote I omitted...
2009 - 58 shows, 997,158 tickets sold (17,192 per show)
2010 - 57 shows, 1,052,312 tickets sold (18,461 per show)
2011 - Caravans
2012 - 41 shows, 757,629 tickets sold (18,478 per show)
2013 - 47 shows, 712,088 tickets sold (15,150 per show)
2014 - Through 22 shows, 397,255 tickets sold (18,057 per show)
A jump of roughly 3,000 tickets per show is more than a "slight boost" (just as the 3,000 ticket drop between 2012 and 2013 was a huge decline). A difference of a few hundred tickets per show is pretty much on par with what they were averaging between 2009 and 2012 (not including the Caravans). Interestingly enough, the post I copied these stats from was another response from me to you on the same topic.
And I'm not trying to single you out, but sales stats are inarguable facts.
