So, a topic came up at work
(*I started it*)
Situation: A band/performer (not a group of performers, not a tour, etc) announces a stadium concert. There's a catch, though. It's that night, less than 18 hours from the time of announcement. I was using Neyland Stadium as the arena (capacity: 107,455 IIRC).
My question is this: What band/performer, with that little of warning, could completely sell out Neyland Stadium?? Oh, and they have to have all their members alive (no using dead people, we all know that Elvis, The Beatles, Hendrix, or Michael Jackson could do it).
My choice, and really the only band that I could see pulling it off, would be AC/DC. I know Bon died in 1980, but Brian's been the lead singer for 32 years, he counts. A friend of mine mentioned Zeppelin, but I dunno if Plant and Page's egos would fit in Neyland together, plus, John Bonham's dead.
So.....what band/performer could sell out Neyland Stadium in less than 18 hours, on extreme short notice??
