Do you understand that for every person who might be excited by Kanye on the bill there may be someone who does not go to Roo because he is on the bill?
Do you understand that making up facts doesn't make your argument stronger? The inclusion of Kanye as a Headliner is not going to reduce the number of patrons at the festival. There will still be 80,000+ festival-goers.

When you say there may be, is not a fact. So I am not making up facts. I asked questions, and I agree there will be 80,000 plus. The "there will still be 80,000" reads as a fact. Now, that being a fact. Why do you book Kanye, knowing there could be a problem?
OK Kanye was the best act at Cochella and Capps was there, maybe he is the best act at every fest and Capps is there. I never said he was not great. I asked do you belive he would increase ticket sales?
Yes. He has 18 Grammys. Every album is platinum. He's one of the most successful artists in the digital age and he's only getting bigger.
and if you were in charge would you want to have to explain to the crowd if he does not show up or shows up extremely late again?
No I wouldn't want to have to do that. Point is, he is much more of a professional and in a better place than he was in '08. It's not like we got some sort of explanation the first time either; he was late; we moved on with our lives.
Why do you book Kanye, knowing there could be a problem?
There could be a problem with any artist no matter who you book. People were saying there would be a problem with Danzig this past year. Other artists too.
The reason you book Kanye is because he is super popular and puts on a great show. The Roo 2008 is one of a handful of problematic shows while a majority of his live concert output has been very positive.
