It's Rise Against (not to be pedantic, just pointing that out).  And, compared to the other schlock, this is pretty good booking.

Thanks, I fixed it. Using Opera Mobile today for testing and struggling with editing. I was trying to import a graphic as well but that was fubar.

So, we still lost John legend to St Augustine. Not looking good so far. Mediocre lineup.

"Losing" shows to St. Augustine is hardly the point, it's the same market. The point is to attract more shows to the metro area, and hopefully, shows that otherwise wouldn't play here. Not that this show necessarily wouldn't have come here regardless of the amphitheater, but it's the first one that's outside the sphere of shows that were safe bets for coming. More of this, please.

Must say I continue to be surprised that Ponte Vedra Concert Hall is still grabbing shows like Beach House, Drive By Truckers and Future Islands to play in a building with no seats in the middle of nowhere. Serious props to their booking team.

Ponte Vedra Concert Hall is fucking awesome and I wish more bands would play there.  Nothing lamer than a seated concert.

Meh. They do book more than their fair share of good acts for Jax and it's an innovative re-use of a building that would be hard to find another use for. But it's in a terrible location, the sound is no good, and there's one thing lamer than a seated concert: folding chairs.

PV Concert Hall offers both seated and GA configurations.  I have been to assigned seating concerts (Steep Canyon Rangers, Josh Ritter), seated comedy shows and GA concerts there.

did we?

If you consider John Legend booking a May 14th show at the St. Augustine Amphitheater - two weeks before Daily's Place opens Memorial Day weekend and likely before final construction is even completed on our new facility - to be "losing" him to St. Augustine, then yes. We definitely lost John Legend.

Lets wait to see if they bring in any Latin, or R & B acts before we ring that bell of divers shows. If the Landing or any such place announces a concert, you can almost bet your house it will be country or southern rock. Diversity is lacking. I don't see much change in this lineup yet.

Wow. Just because you dislike his style, doesn't mean he f'ing awful. I'm sure he has an appeal to some, otherwise he wouldn't be selling records the way he does. It's attitudes like this (MMR and Adam) which contribute to a larger divide between people. Whatever happened to disagreeing civilly? It's much more difficult to have restraint and it only serves to fan the flames of insensitivity towards others when we take things so personally. But attacking and bullying someone is easy, just ask our current president.

Alright, the day has finally come for the first test of the amphitheater's viability. Tickets go on sale tomorrow for several concerts. The venue is being built, they convinces a bunch of acts to come, and now we'll see how the public reacts.

Daily's Place may have a leg up on the St. Augustine Amphitheater as a venue, but slow ticket sales may be a big factor on who books where come next concert season.

How is saying that John Legend is fucking awful anything other than a personal opinion? How does his video having over one bilion views mean I can't agree that he's fucking awful?

I also can't stand the Beastie Boys. And I've never enjoyed the taste of fish. Surely those aren't false statements, just because both are very popular?

I'm really sorry if I have "bullied" anyone.

On a somewhat-related note - it looks like Adeel Dazeeb is playing in St Augustine, so you missed out on that one, too.

I bet 400M of those views are from people who watched it to see a scantily clad Chrissy Teegan. 

For context, Charlie Bit My Finger has 850M. Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) has 1.2B. Gangnam Style has almost 3B views.

I'm sure the experience is different depending on where your seat is, but if you are on the right side, second level, the sound is awful.  Way too much bass, not enough midrange.  Can't understand lyrics.  In general, too much volume for the space.

I had some family go there recently and they complained that it was really hot / there was little to no circulation. Can anyone speak to this? I'd imagine if the next phase includes the covered pedestrian section on the downtown side of the venue like the renderings it would block more sunlight / cool down those seats during the evening in the summer.

It wasnt the sun so much as the lack of air movement after 7pm. The bathrooms have no air at all and going in during an intermission, you come out looking like you dribbled on yourself when its actually the sweat.

Its really simple, put in slient blowers under the first deck that creates air movement over the main floor. Thats it.

As far as the bathrooms go, I was told that was being addressed.

As for the sound, it all looks very temporary at the moment. I wouldnt be surprised if the current arrangement get revised when the concerts stop in November.

On the sound, there are many variables that can impact sound quality at an outdoor venue. Humidity, number of people present, type of music involved, even the wind blowing can change outdoor acoustics.

I was also at 3EB and noticed that the opening act was very 'trebly' and crackly, SSPU's sound was spot on, and 3EB was just overpowering all the way around.

So when I went to the Incubus show I was already paying more attention, but I thought the sound for all 3 acts at that show was really good.

I would lean toward each individual board guy being the reason that the sound was good or not.  And to Spuwho's point, I don't know how much different the outside conditions would make things from an afternoon soundcheck (if they're even doing those) to the evening concert.

AC in the bathrooms or fans at the very least sounds pretty obvious. Glad to hear that being addressed.

As for circulation in the venue do you think those massive warehouse ceiling fans would work? Seems like this is something that can be overlooked in the first year, but needs to be addressed quickly. A lot of these acts draw older audiences and they don't put up with the heat as much as the Rockville crowd

Afternoon soundcheck.....no one in the seats.  Less sound absorption.

Evening concert......seats are full. Different sound involved.

Correct on the sound guy/girl and their level of expertise. It takes more than to simply know the songs and the settings, you have to learn to adjust to your conditions.

Also, if the knob man likes to run his system "hot" and its also hot outside, you can get sound variations in speakers, especially if the magnets/fluid gets superhot.  I assume the amp rack is in a temp controlled room backstage.

I did several tours of the US as a sound engineer and studied acoustics.  I also managed a few outdoor stages in my life and have seen many bonehead engineers make some poor choices. But I was fortunate to see and learn from some of the better traveling engineers of the time.  Yes, I know Project Maximus, yet one more thing in my life.

With the capacity the digital mixing world brings, it allows for some great tools at hand, but one still has to understand how sound works.

I saw a photo on Daily's Place twitter (see June 27th entry) of the flex field and they have the large fans hanging from the ceiling.  I would guess only a matter of time before they do the same in the amphitheater.

PRI (contract house production in charge of PA systems) currently offers different sound packages. So I'm pretty sure it'll differ from band to band and how many people they are expecting to be in attendance. It most definitely involves whoever happens to be behind the board for a given band as well.

Saw Post Modern Jukebox and Straight No Chaser last night. It was a fantastic concert and the sound where I was (section 205) was great. The new area where you can walk out to the field in the stadium is really cool too. Only complaint is the price of concessions. It appears that they are locked into the NFL game prices for some reason. I can't imagine that they actually think that $9 for a miller light and $13 for a J'ville Lager are the profit maximizing prices. I saw very few people with drinks out of the several thousand people there. Outside of a Symphony performance, I've never been to an event where alcohol was served and so few people are drinking. I guess they just expect everyone to pregame at Intuition?

^The last time I was at Daily's Place, I went into the Daily's convenience store they built downstairs and ordered two Blue Moon drafts.

$26.

I laughed out loud when she told me the price before shamefully handing over my card when I realized it wasn't a joke.

Good observation too, by the way. I didn't see many people drinking either. Hopefully they have an economist on staff, as pricing that high above equilibrium is likely resulting in a significant deadweight loss for the venue. Drop the price a few dollars and see what happens to drink sales.

I am not sure the exact prices, but that doesn't seem like much more than what they charge at the Arena next door.

Coming from someone that was routinely paying $9 for Yuengling tall boys at JU basketball games for many years, I can confirm that the alcohol pricing between Dailys Place and Veterans Memorial Arena is in line (they are also both run by SMG/Savor). Also paid close to $70 for four doubles of Jack Daniels at Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chili Peppers inside the Arena, and paid about the same at Derek Trucks inside Dailys Place.


As far as sound quality, after having been to four concerts at Dailys Place so far, the only place I would not recommend is right up against the wall where the 'Dailys Place' sign is. The bass just bounces off that wall. Lower middle, 200 level on the right side and the Terrace Suite area in the center of the 300 level all had great sound.  Frankly, I think the sound quality at Dailys Place is better than the Arena. Been to quite a few concerts at the Arena where the sound seemed to be bouncing off the ceiling or concrete risers and could become quite 'tingy'.


As NRW pointed out, the sound is also pretty good in the Dailys Place parking lot... and I can anticipate attending a tailgate concert at some point this year with my 8.99 six pack of I-10 :)

The flex field is really nice.

And it's going to look REALLY nice on gamedays with the hangar doors wide open.

Per Lamping, the reason that Daily's Place opens in the rear to the flex field is so that occasional general admission concerts can be held in the flex field area using the stage from Daily's Place.

My understanding is that the alcohol vendors only get half of what the customer pays.  COJ and/or Jags get the other half.  Drinkers are paying an extra share of the concessions revenue.
I haven't been to a show at Daily's yet but I'm excited to see Ian Anderson and his latest iteration of Jethro Tull in November.

Of course. And it's a captive market - so people will pay it.

The Jags have stated repeatedly that they plan to hold major concerts at Daily's Place on the Saturday before every Jags home game. Interesting that we're just a little over two weeks out from the first home game, and nothing has been announced. All of the dates are wide open.

How could you NOT see these claims for these pre-game concerts were mostly horseshit? The odds of a venue attracting 7 acts just as the height of the summer outdoor venue touring season is winding down to fill a multi-thousand seated high-priced venue and asked to adjust their already packed schedules to play on one of 7 specific Saturdays are akin to a single ticket winning a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot.

Or be prepared for bands like Grandpa's Cough Medicine and The Band Be Easy amping up your Saturday night Jags pep rallies, fine bands to be sure,  but there will certainly be whiners out there complaining that Mark Lamping sold Jaguar fans false Trumpian-like promises.

This Saturday will be a first ever collaboration between the Jaguars and the Jacksonville Symphony as they present Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone IN Concert.  An over sized screen will be above the orchestra as the movie plays and the orchestra preforms the soundtrack live.  Music by John Williams, perhaps the second most successful orchestral composer of the last 50 years ( I think he's worth around $500 million).

This event is a little pricey ($50 ?) but should be amazing, providing the weather co-operates. 

Daily's Place. One performance only Saturday at 7:30 pm.

Tickets available through  Ticket Master I believe.

I think that is something you will see in 2018. It was never realistic to think that they could bring in acts when the facility wasn't ready until May. Most tours are booked months in advance.

You could chalk up the lack of upcoming acts to the slowing down of the outdoor venue season but it does not explain how Daily's Place lost out on acts like Widespread Panic, Jack Johnson, Sammy Hagar, Roger Daltrey, Lindsey Stirling, Avett Brothers, and <gasp> Jacksonville's own Lynyrd Skynyrd, to little 'ol St. Augustine Amphitheater. We'll see what acts they can draw come Spring 2018 but so far St. Aug Amph got an early lead on that front already.

^^THIS!^^ With all the grumblings about the necessity of the city of Jax helping a billionaire that has the money build an amphitheater it's so refreshing to see the venue give one of our most beloved musical institutions such exposure. They can book  all the fancy big-name draws they can for all I care. Just leave room for more events like this one.

Providing the venue?   This place is unique and there was nothing like it before, by that I mean a state of the art outdoor covered  venue.

I hope lots of you will be there to see what is possible when the NFL partners with the cities largest not for profit Cultural Arts Organization

to provide an event for all Jacksonville to enjoy.

Not sure who is booking shows there but everyone else promoting concerts in Jax is pretty busy. Florida Theater keeps announcing new stuff and the Symphony has their entire line up booked a year in advance.

I'm personally hoping the Symphony will return to Daily's Place with a monster classical double header of Carl Orff's "CARMINA BURANA"

And BEETHOVEN'S NINTH SYMPHONY.  This would be a first ever for the Symphony, but makes sense as each piece employ's a full chorus 

and several vocal soloists.

I don't think the humidity would bother it, but you can't keep it out of the tank for too long - no matter how moist the air, a fish still can't breathe in it!

I do have a 'second bass',  a modern instrument.  My nice one is about 200 years old (guesstimate) and it can handle it for a while.

But it does swell up as it drinks in the moisture and is a bit harder to play.  The new one does the same I just lower the strings (adjustable bridge) if needed.  I definitely avoid long term exposure to any extremes in temp or humidity for both.

Once traveled from Tampa to Minneapolis (in December) on tour and it literally caused a massive crack right up the middle of that instrument (going into the sudden extremes of single digit humidity....). I was in shock for a while............

For Harry Potter it was actually pretty pleasant at Daily's,  so would want to schedule this show prior to April if possible.

Just doing a rough count, between now and late Spring, it looks like there are 40+ shows booked at the Florida Theatre, 16 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, ~10 at Veterans Memorial, ~40 at the Ponte Vedra Music Hall, and one show at Daily's Place.

Place is brand new, and the city invested $45 million in it, can't comprehend why there are no dates booked for the next five months.

I feel like this is a question someone needs to be asking Bold Events.

I don't understand how a place like this can have a single Friday or Saturday go by without a booking. Did they hire an outside firm to get their initial lineup and now they are floundering?

Bold Events uses Live Nation as their preferred booking partner.

Looks like Live Nation's roster is pretty weak nationwide between now and April. Shakira and Pink appear to be the only major touring acts in their lineup during that window.

I'd hope they'd be working with some additional partners as well to mitigate against five-month droughts.

Washed Out and Animal Collective played at Mavericks which was awesome!
I'm not familiar with how these lineups are created but I wish people would bring in trendier bands.

I'm glad ODEZA and Of Montreal are coming to Jax!

St. Augustine Amphitheater has Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, and the National playing there this spring....

Just an FYI for people that are in the music booking biz around Jax and may read this. Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta in May has a great lineup and tons of acts that would be great to bring down here. That is how St. Auggie got The National. Every music venue in Jax should get one of their biggest acts of the year this weekend. But guess what? The Florida Theater booked 82 year old Herb Alpert that Friday. Classic Florida Theater. Same venue that ignored me when I tried to bring Tame Impala there a few years back.

Is there a radio station in Jax that plays their music so I could get a sample? 

i.e. ....... "XXYYXX, Cut Copy, Chromesparks, Grizzly Bear and Giraffage"

Household names among indie rock fans and a lot of younger people. No local radio station I know of would play any of that besides UNF’s Spinnaker Radio (http://radio.unfspinnaker.com), and that’s low power FM. Just pull them up on Spotify or YouTube if you’re interested.

The issue is there are whole categories of music that would be successful that Jax venues continue to skip out on. PVCH and St Augie Amphitheater get more variety, but they’re not great (and they’re way the hell out there). It’s frustrating that the vast majority of shows booked at Dad Rock Live have been bands from the previous century.

Absolutely nothing stopping Tacachale and his friends from presenting concerts at the Moran Theater at the Times Union. Seats 3000.

If there is a market for it as he claims then there will be someone who they can partner with to present all the acts he describes.

Or call SMG straight up and put a proposal in front of them.  Moran is available a couple hundred nights per year last time I checked.

St Augustine amphitheater seats how many?  Unity Plaza?  Can you do a for profit event there?

Would Moran support indie rock acts? I don't just mean technically, but from an idealistic perspective? Moran's upcoming events are Disney's The Lion King, the Symphony Orchestra, Dancing with the Stars, and Steve Martin. Is SMG going to allow some indie rock band to share a stage with those guys?

St. Augustine I could imagine working, but it's so far away from DT, It's almost not the same market.

Unity I would ask about actual technical support. It's outdoors, with no cover at all. Is there any parking or public transportation point that could support the (hopeful) crowds? Are there dining options close enough to keep people nearby or occupied before and after the show? It wouldn't be impossible, but it'd be necessary to consider.

What I don't understand is, there are so, so many abandoned and unoccupied buildings in the core and close to it, that just need someone to be willing to make it a space for indie, and get people into that space.

"Those that can, DO, those who can't, bitch."

I keep saying, it'd be great if there was a way everyone could put some money in/invest, and just take action to make something happen downtown.

Downtown Jacksonville has sufficient venues to accommodate your more successful indie type acts, though I hesitate to even call a lot of the larger bands like War on Drugs, LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Tame Impala, Modest Mouse, etc "indie acts" in the traditional sense. These bands are all over Fallon, Colbert, SNL, satellite radio, Spotify, your local bars and restaurant playlists, and so on. They play huge venues all over the country, and to hundreds of thousands of people at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, etc.

Between The Florida Theater, Moran, and Daily's, DT Jax should be able to accomodate the larger acts. It's true that there isn't a 1,000-1,200 person venue to accomodate your mid-tier acts (Orange Peel in Asheville is a great example), but that doesn't mean that the other venues should not be booking acts in their realm. The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville is a great model for the Florida Theater and/or Moran Theater to follow. It is a historic theater with 2,300 seats-400 more than FT and 600 less than Moran. They mix in country, bluesy-alt country, comedy, and also get a decent amount of indie/rock bands. This spring they have Dan Auerbach (Black Keys), Noel Gallagahers Band, MGMT, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, David Byrne, Jimmy Eat World, and Fleet Foxes. Demand is so high that Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, and Decemberists are playing 2 nights. None are earth shattering acts, but in comparison to the Florida Theaters current legit bookings of zero, impressive.

The Florida Theater is a beautiful historic venue, located accross the street from one of (if not) Jax's best bars, in close walking distance to hotels, dining, and other bars. Most cities in America would love to have it. There is absolutely no reason that it should be doing this poorly with it's bookings. There is also no excuse for Jax to be getting beaten so badly by SJC (Ampitheater/PV Music Hall) with its combination of venues.

For those saying "do something", I don't live in Jax anymore and have other career ambitions than opening a music venue. What are you doing?

The fact that St. Augustine Amphitheater (4000 seats) does schedule larger shows of this type is proof that it would be successful at Daily's Place (5500 seats), if the management would step out of its box. The fact that Ponte Vedra Concert Hall (capacity 900), a box with no seats in the middle of nowhere, routinely gets indie shows of its size range, proves that it would work in Downtown Jacksonville, including in the venues we already have. And the fact that both SAA and PVCH are run by the local gov means there's no excuse for the city-run venues like Daily's Place and Florida Theater.

Part of the pitch for Daily's Place was that it would let us book shows that don't typically stop in this market due to a lack of appropriate venues (especially venues that aren't 45 miles from Downtown like St. Augustine Amphitheater). But pretty much all we've gotten are safe bet nostalgia shows that were coming to Jax venues already.

Nailed it^

Here's a big problem with the Florida Theater. Its Board of Directors is almost fully comprised of corporate partners. I've sat on several non-profit boards, and it is very common for corporate partners to be empty chairs. While I'm sure that many of them are music lovers and cultured people, I'd also venture to guess that many aren't, or are older people that think Air Supply/Foreigner type bookings are good. How are there not more people from the cultural/creative community in Jax on the board?

Thank you.  And, therein lies the problem.  Anyone who listens to Alt Nation on Sirius/XM or a channel like iHeart Eclectic could rattle off 25 bands such as these that they would love to see playing in Jax in a smaller than arena venue. be it a 5000 seat Daily's Place or a 2000 seat theater.  One of the things we wanted in picking our destination for retirement was the city had to be large enough to have a lot of great cultural things, such as concerts.  We have been largely disappointed at the lack of shows so far.

It's been said on other threads regarding Jacksonville as a whole, but this is where NOT having a large, well-known university nearby really hurts us.  Culturally, we appear to be far behind where we could/should be.

Because we don't have local radio here that plays music.  We have tons of Religion stations that are local.  The rest are owned by national companies.  Most of our radio doesn't even have local DJs.  So because of that all of our radio is on the pop spectrum... billboard chart stuff, and Indie/College radio doesn't fit that bucket. 

I do think if there were a college station here it would do pretty well, because even though the majority of people like the tops of the charts.  There are enough people here that a single Indie/College station would do well, just not as well as a standard Cox or Clear Channel formula that we have tons of.   

Point being, indie stations aren't as profitable.  In Seattle there are several and they have been around forever.  But they aren't necessarily profitable.  I know that 1 is funded by the university and 1 is funded by donations.  It sure would be nice if we had one though.

I asked the question earlier, kinda tongue-in-cheek, but seriously, people really listen to FM radio for their music?  I mean, to me, that's the equivalent of people that have nothing but over-the-air TV at their house.  How many people actually do that?  Maybe 10%?  People pay for cable, satellite, smart services like roku and the rest because they want more (much more) than OTA television can bring them.  Why would something as important as music be any different?  And, you hit the nail on the head with corporate ownership of radio.  I actually taught a mini-unit on media to my middle school students for the past three years and that was one of the things that we discussed, how their music identity was being shaped for them by someone living far away that decided for them what they should be listening to.

Either way, I am sure the percentage of people who listen to alt rock in Jax are significantly higher than the representation we are seeing in booked concerts down here.

"None of them are indie bands anymore - they're all on major record labels."  But they get no airtime on local radio?  Why not?

Talk to the guys and gals at Clear Channel or whatever its name is now (and the handful of other companies that own pretty much all of the radio stations in the USA).

Probably old news but Fleet Foxes playing St Aug Amph Mar 2......


"None of them are indie bands anymore - they're all on major record labels."  But they get no airtime on local radio?  Why not?



Also Timmy B says: " One of the things we wanted in picking our destination for retirement was the city had to be large enough to have a lot of great cultural things, such as concerts.  We have been largely disappointed at the lack of shows so far.

It's been said on other threads regarding Jacksonville as a whole, but this is where NOT having a large, well-known university nearby really hurts us.  Culturally, we appear to be far behind where we could/should be."

I suggest you go see the Jacksonville Symphony.  We do about 100 concerts a year and have something for almost every taste.  I think it is safe to say it provides world class symphonic entertainment (LIVE MUSIC) in Downtown Jacksonville for a reasonable price. Indie Rock, no. But good nonetheless!
A David Bowie Tribute is coming up pretty soon. Also a show with hip hop artist Wyclef Jean at Daily's Place. That should float your boat.  You can find it at:   JaxSymphony.org

Sounds like a winner, MM.  I guarantee you we will take in that Bowie show as long as it happens when we are in town.  (We have a couple of months out of town to visit family/friends up north.)  Thanks for the heads-up!  :)

I asked the question earlier, kinda tongue-in-cheek, but seriously, people really listen to FM radio for their music?  I mean, to me, that's the equivalent of people that have nothing but over-the-air TV at their house.  How many people actually do that? 

I think many people do out of laziness. If your drive is going to be under 10 minutes, taking out your phone and hooking it up, selecting music and then driving is more effort than it's worth to get a song or two in.

Having said that, I find it amazing that people can stand to listen FM, Bluetooth, and XM; the sound quality is incredibly poor. If I'm stuck with those options I'll ususally just put on a podcast.

My dad would listen to Jones College while we were sailing, an elbow on the tiller, a scotch in his hand, and the portable FM secured with an elastic cord.
I rediscovered the now internet only station during a visit a few years ago.
The home of "Beautiful Music" (their label) has kind of an ambient vibe, beyond easy listening, the experience is like doing the breast stroke slowly in a lap pool filled with cough syrup and faint memories.

Why would you need your phone to listen to sat rad?  I've had it in every vehicle I've owned since 2003, first as an add-on, then in the head unit itself.  Sound quality?  I'm in a car, half the time in a convertible with the top down.  I'll take quality selection of music and zero commercials and inane talk over a little degradation in sound, any day.

Sorry to say but count me as one.  I often spend 2-5 hours a day performing with a full symphony so I actually get an incredible "fix" right there.  And yes I cut the cord to cable about 7 years ago and use OTA. Since I have a Smart TV I also have wi fi and therefore YouTube plus Amazon on my TV.  Considering my daily schedule and the fact I have 2 kids (11 and 14) I cannot justify the monthly cable bill. I think I've saved at least $6800 in cable bills (12 months x 7 years x $80), or at least it was $80 a month when I quit paying.  Most of my friends pay way more than that (in some cases up to $200 monthly).  And I am in front of a TV maybe 1 or 2 hours per day, on average. 

Listen to a lot of CD's in my car and at home.....  I'm definitely behind my brother in law who is introducing me to streaming and Apple's I Tunes...

I agree.  But they are still ramping up.  Also, outdoor amphitheaters as a general rule don't have shows in the winter.  The artists won't play because the weather is too unpredictable (even in sunny Florida) and its a pain to have to cancel shows, or play in a storm.

People listen to the radio in the car, in Jax and most other cities. I don't think that has much to do with the failure of Daily's Place to book acts from the current century. It has everything to do with the management playing it safe and focusing its attention on a particular age group/demographic.

This thread makes me sound more anti-dad rock than I am. I don't mind these shows playing at Daily's Place or anywhere else in NE Florida. They were coming to St. Augustine Amphitheater and other venues long before they came to Daily's. What I mind is this city-owned venue almost exclusively booking acts of this type to the exclusion of anything else.

Given the modest size of Daily's Place, it seems like there shouldn't be any problem booking and selling shows from a variety of artists. I agree that the issue probably lies more with the bookers and less with the potential of the venue.

Fucking sad how underutilized this facility is.

After looking at the Daily's Place offerings so far for the early festival concert season my reaction is not so much sad as not surprised. Given the solid bookings they had last year it's safe to say that for it's inaugural year Bold Events laid out a ton of incentives and waived a bunch of fees to get artists here. Given the expense of playing at such a nice new facility a lot of these acts need to be sure they come close to selling out all these premium priced seats to play there. Another thing possibly hurting the amphitheater's desirability is it's lack of lawn seating. Even though those fans are subjected to sitting on wet patchy muddy grass with obstructive sightlines of the stage and subpar sound, the fact that these tickets cost substantially less than your typical arena (or Daily's Place) cheap seats help attract thousands more fans and their families each night to not only enjoy these acts but also the chance to sell them premium priced merchandise, an increasingly important revenue source for these tours.

And I haven't yet mentioned the 500 pound gorilla in the room significantly contributing to Daily's Place woes - The St. Augustine Amphitheater.

The discussion on their effect on Daily's Place I will leave for another post...

Here's an experiment, and potential article topic. Over the last year, what acts that have played in venues of this approximate size (say 2-6k) in the Southeast have we missed at Daily's Place? What bands have played at other local venues (including St. Augustine Amphitheater), and which ones have passed the market entirely? Focus on the 21st century, please.

Here are a few I can think of, across genres (and disregarding quality)

Acts that came to other local venues:

Drive By Truckers (April 2017, PVCH)
Nathaniel Rateliff (April 2017
Beach House (May 2017, PVCH)
Travis Scott (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
Bastille (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
John Legend (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
The Head and the Heart (May 2017, Florida Theater)
J. Cole (June 2017, Mavericks)
Future Islands (June 2017, PVCH)
Jason Isbell (July 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
JJ Grey and Mofro (February 28, 2018, St. Augustine Amphitheater) (Yes, they're from the 90s, but they're also *from* Jacksonville.
Fleet Foxes (March 2, 2018 St. Augustine Amphitheater)
Broken Social Scene (April 1, 2018 PVCH)
Dr. Dog (April 15, 2018, PVCH)

Some that skipped the market entirely, but played in similar venues elsewhere in the Southeast:

Arcade Fire (September 2017 in Miami, Tampa and Atlanta; will also be at Okeechobee)
LCD Soundsystem (October 2017 in Atlanta and Miami)
Grizzly Bear (November 2017 in Atlanta)
St. Vincent (February 17, 2018 in Atlanta; also playing in Asheville)
Sylvan Esso (playing at Okeechobee in March; will also stop in Atlanta and New Orleans)
Mat Kearney (various stops in the Southeast in March)

Daily's Place doesn't have any woes. They've sold out dozens of concerts already. They're just "playing the hits" as it were.

As far as St. Augustine goes, Daily's Place should be putting a hurting on St. Augustine Amphitheater, not the other way around. SAA is on Anastasia Island, not even terribly convenient from St. Augustine, and about as far as you can get from the rest of the metro area. And the parking sucks. By contrast, Daily's Place is pretty much perfectly located, easily accessibly from anywhere in the metro. It has plenty of parking and is newer and nicer. And yet SAA Amphitheater books shows Daily's Place hasn't gotten.

I wonder how operating costs for Daily's Place compare to St. Augustine Amphitheater?

Daily's Place is a bigger, newer venue, with more security and staffing needs (multiple restaurants, a built-in convenience store, etc.), 1,500 more seats, club-level sections, a massive LED roof to light, no parking revenue, etc. Then, you've got Bold Events, Live Nation, and I assume the City of Jacksonville all taking a cut of the gate.

I wonder if the break-even threshold for Daily's Place is high enough above St. Augustine Amphitheater that anything less than a near sellout at $50+ a ticket isn't financially viable.

I've literally got no idea, but I'd be curious to know what type of gate Daily's Place needs to justify opening the doors and powering the place up.

The year is young, I do hope we see more diversity in 2018.

It seats up to 900 so it's more in the category of Florida Theater than Daily's Place. I know at least Beach House sold out there. They probably wouldn't sell out Daily's Place, if that's what you're asking.

^Oh, for sure.

I think larger indie-ish bands like Modest Mouse, or the National, or Death Cab, or Chvrches, or Haim could pack the place.

And if it's successful, expand the indie net.

Anything to break the Dad Rock-Country-Christian-Dad Rock-Country-Christian cycle.

Do love the Wyclef/Symphony concept though.

Here are a few I can think of, across genres (and disregarding quality)

Acts that came to other local venues:

Drive By Truckers (April 2017, PVCH)
Nathaniel Rateliff (April 2017
Beach House (May 2017, PVCH)
Travis Scott (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
Bastille (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
John Legend (May 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
The Head and the Heart (May 2017, Florida Theater)
J. Cole (June 2017, Mavericks)
Future Islands (June 2017, PVCH)
Jason Isbell (July 2017, St. Augustine Amphitheater)
JJ Grey and Mofro (February 28, 2018, St. Augustine Amphitheater) (Yes, they're from the 90s, but they're also *from* Jacksonville.
Fleet Foxes (March 2, 2018 St. Augustine Amphitheater)
Broken Social Scene (April 1, 2018 PVCH)
Dr. Dog (April 15, 2018, PVCH)

Some that skipped the market entirely, but played in similar venues elsewhere in the Southeast:

Arcade Fire (September 2017 in Miami, Tampa and Atlanta; will also be at Okeechobee)
LCD Soundsystem (October 2017 in Atlanta and Miami)
Grizzly Bear (November 2017 in Atlanta)
St. Vincent (February 17, 2018 in Atlanta; also playing in Asheville)
Sylvan Esso (playing at Okeechobee in March; will also stop in Atlanta and New Orleans)
Mat Kearney (various stops in the Southeast in March)

in 2017 the At. Augustine Amphitheater also got Avett Brothers, Bon Iver, Jack Johnson/Bahamas, STS9, Wolf Parade/Deer Tick, Widespread Panic, Modest Mouse, Paul Simon, Weezer, and Willie Nelson

Ponte Vedra Music Hall has also recently had:

The Zombies, The Might Be Giants, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Toad The Wet Sprocket, Portugal The Man, Kurt Vile, and Foals


This will ruffle some feathers, but St. Johns County is the music capital of Northeast Florida until Daily's Place and the Florida Theater get it together.

From TimmyB:
"I asked the question earlier, kinda tongue-in-cheek, but seriously, people really listen to FM radio for their music?  I mean, to me, that's the equivalent of people that have nothing but over-the-air TV at their house.  How many people actually do that? "

Sorry to say but count me as one.  I often spend 2-5 hours a day performing with a full symphony so I actually get an incredible "fix" right there.  And yes I cut the cord to cable about 7 years ago and use OTA. Since I have a Smart TV I also have wi fi and therefore YouTube plus Amazon on my TV.  Considering my daily schedule and the fact I have 2 kids (11 and 14) I cannot justify the monthly cable bill. I think I've saved at least $6800 in cable bills (12 months x 7 years x $80), or at least it was $80 a month when I quit paying.  Most of my friends pay way more than that (in some cases up to $200 monthly).  And I am in front of a TV maybe 1 or 2 hours per day, on average. 

Listen to a lot of CD's in my car and at home.....  I'm definitely behind my brother in law who is introducing me to streaming and Apple's I Tunes...

But, you basically are saying the same thing as I am, you are just doing it in a MUCH more financially responsible way.  You are viewing FAR more than just OTA; you're using your smart tv to pull in content from everywhere.  As for music, options like iHeart Radio, Pandora, etc. have expanded our choices even further than sat rad, but they are much more problematic.  You usually have to go through your phone, which is the biggest downer for me.

I am tempted to do the same with cable (actually, uVerse) but the amount of different movie channels my wife watches make that difficult.  However, the great discounts that I get from being an ATT Unlimited customer for wireless have made it much less painful than it was only a year or so ago.

My kids are 32 and 30, now so I do have a little more disposable income than I did when they were bleeding me dry living at home!   ;) ;) ;)  I'm still looking forward to hearing you play but (sadly) it probably won't be until next season.

People listen to the radio in the car, in Jax and most other cities. I don't think that has much to do with the failure of Daily's Place to book acts from the current century. It has everything to do with the management playing it safe and focusing its attention on a particular age group/demographic.

This thread makes me sound more anti-dad rock than I am. I don't mind these shows playing at Daily's Place or anywhere else in NE Florida. They were coming to St. Augustine Amphitheater and other venues long before they came to Daily's. What I mind is this city-owned venue almost exclusively booking acts of this type to the exclusion of anything else.

Don't get me wrong, T.  I'm on the same page as you.  I just saw Steely Dan and Steve Winwood 18 months ago, the Eagles right before that, Skynyrd before that, etc.  I value ALL good music.  I (like you) want to see the newer bands as well.

As a sidenote, I got incredibly lucky last month.  We are going to England for three weeks in April and I scored two tickets to Bastille at the Royal Albert Hall, simply because there are no paper tickets for this event and someone had to give theirs up.  (They are not allowed to resell them.)  I just happened to be online checking when these two seats came open!!!

Sports complex plan includes tall digital sign downtown

A new plan to allow tall, bright ad signage in downtown Jacksonville’s sports and entertainment complex is headed to a final City Council decision next week.

City Hall would control messages on the new digital sign, which the city would spend about $535,000 building on a 45-foot pole southwest of Daily’s Place amphitheater off Gator Bowl Boulevard.

Council Finance Committee members approved legislation Tuesday allowing the sign, but grumbled after being told that three others envisioned in a 2015 development partnership with Jaguars owner Shad Khan apparently won’t be built.

“My guess is our $45 million is gone,” said Councilman John Crescimbeni said, a reference to money the city put into construction by Khan’s organization of the amphitheater and practice facility.

Marquee-style digital boards had been planned for that project, which was completed last year without the signs. City sports and entertainment officer Dave Herrell told Crescimbeni the Jaguars spent more than the city on the project, which had been budgeted for $90 million, he said, but had some cost overruns.

The 27-by-12-foot sign envisioned in the new legislation — written to change the city’s sign laws, not to fund the project — would be about half the size of many billboards. The sign’s dimensions and placement still need approval by the city’s Downtown Development Review Board.

While not huge by signage standards, it would be a bright presence in the downtown skyline, and Herrell told council members this week the sign would remain turned on around the clock.

The bill allowing the new sign says it can be used only to promote “upcoming uses of or events to be held in” Everbank Field, Daily’s Place, Metropolitan Park, the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena or the baseball grounds.

The bill approved Tuesday is different from the version the Mayor’s Office filed, and was passed after council members said explanations of the first version were uncomfortably vague.

“The word ‘intent’ keeps being kicked around,” Councilman Danny Becton cautioned, saying he wanted more ironclad language.

The sign can include “a reference to a promoter or sponsor of such events,” the latest version of the ordinance (2017-804) says, but it isn’t supposed to be used for pure advertising. That means a Ford logo would be allowed if Ford sponsors a monster truck event, city lawyer John Sawyer told the committee, but a sign advertising a big sale on F-150s would not be.

The bill is schedule for a vote by the full council next week.

Fucking sad how underutilized this facility is.

After looking at the Daily's Place offerings so far for the early festival concert season my reaction is not so much sad as not surprised. Given the solid bookings they had last year it's safe to say that for it's inaugural year Bold Events laid out a ton of incentives and waived a bunch of fees to get artists here. Given the expense of playing at such a nice new facility a lot of these acts need to be sure they come close to selling out all these premium priced seats to play there. Another thing possibly hurting the amphitheater's desirability is it's lack of lawn seating. Even though those fans are subjected to sitting on wet patchy muddy grass with obstructive sightlines of the stage and subpar sound, the fact that these tickets cost substantially less than your typical arena (or Daily's Place) cheap seats help attract thousands more fans and their families each night to not only enjoy these acts but also the chance to sell them premium priced merchandise, an increasingly important revenue source for these tours.

And I haven't yet mentioned the 500 pound gorilla in the room significantly contributing to Daily's Place woes - The St. Augustine Amphitheater.

The discussion on their effect on Daily's Place I will leave for another post...

Daily's Place doesn't have any woes. They've sold out dozens of concerts already. They're just "playing the hits" as it were.

As far as St. Augustine goes, Daily's Place should be putting a hurting on St. Augustine Amphitheater, not the other way around. SAA is on Anastasia Island, not even terribly convenient from St. Augustine, and about as far as you can get from the rest of the metro area. And the parking sucks. By contrast, Daily's Place is pretty much perfectly located, easily accessibly from anywhere in the metro. It has plenty of parking and is newer and nicer. And yet SAA Amphitheater books shows Daily's Place hasn't gotten.

So what's the secret to the St. Augustine amphitheater's success? Now I have no experience in running venues and booking acts nor have I worked in the business of planning nor operating of tours but I'm pretty sure it boils down to the staff of SA Amp having a great relationship with a lot of these touring companies and promoters over the years. When they first started trying to get big-name acts a decade ago they had their struggles but over time amphitheater management and act bookers became more familiar with these tour operators and more capable of negotiating deals and ultimately doing a better job to sell the place.

Now performers will always be treated like kings and queens by the venue staff but what gets overlooked in what venues they perform at are how the touring staff are treated. Is the management and staff good to work with? Are they attentive to their needs? Are they good at dealing with problems that come up? And can they ultimately put on the show the tour envisions with minimal hassles?

On top of that there is also the feedback from fans that attended the concert. Artists and their management getting fan messages about how they enthusiastically traveled for hours to get to this particular venue, how it was a great getaway for them, and that they'll plan a vacation to this town if they come back along with these performers and staff's relationships with the venue are likely considered when another tour around this part of the country is planned. With all these positive responses eventually the rest of the concert industry takes a closer look at SA Amp ultimately performing there and so on. The fact that so many acts have come back to St. Augustine year after year and new acts keep coming is a testament to that. 

Being a new venue in a sea of dozens of similar ones, not yet establishing the relationships with show promoters SA Amp has, and  the inability as of yet to gain that positive reputation in the touring community are some of the hurdles Daily's Place seems to be facing this year. Although it's still early and there are lots of tours yet to book dates for this summer, Daily's Place may end up being the fall-back venue in case SA Amp lacks slots, at least for now.

The key for them is being flexible and have creative programming. The big acts will come but can't be relied on too heavily so at least having Daily's Place help serve and support the community can lead to the community to keep supporting Daily's Place.

You answered your own question pretty much. 

I have worked in the entertainment industry for years, and still do.  A new venue takes a long time to get a reputation (good or bad) and artists need to basically be coerced to come to a venue they have never been before, either financially or through personal connections. 

Once an artist plays a venue and likes it, they are sure to return.  And once you get enough of those, you get follow on booking from them and similar artists.  Same with the promoters/managers etc.  Plus up and coming artists might say, hey, Modest Mouse plays there every year, we have a similar fanbase, I want to also.  But all this takes time. 

Daily's Place is unknown and under the radar to most artists, agents and promoters.  That takes time to change, and once it does, we will see a lot more of the newer acts and a lot more shows in general. 

One of the reasons you are seeing all this so called "dad rock" is because they are trying to cover the country in 3 months playing nearly every night, with some promoter running the show.  That promoter spends a lot of time negotiating a deal.  Getting Dave Matthews in will surely sell the place out so a new venue will be more willing to pay top dollar to get them to play.  Some of these smaller, newer acts are often handling the tour themselves or with a "buddy", non-professional manager who probably has never heard of Daily's place.

Another issue last year is a lot of the bands already signed on to do St. Augustine, they aren't going to play here too.

All that said, I think this amphitheater will do well.  It will just take a little while to get there, as it did for St. Augustine, and just about every theater. 

I remember a Widespread Panic show at the Gorge in Washington State that had about 15 people there; it was a great show, but very sad.  Now that place sells out pretty much every show.  People travel far and wide to go there.

Yeah, I would say the advantage of St. Augustine Amphitheater is the head start. When they came around they were the only venue of that size in the metro area, and now that Jax finally got its act together, it's already well established among touring acts (including acts that formerly played in Jax venues). That doesn't mean Daily's Place shouldn't make the effort - they've been around for nearly a year at this point, it's time to step up. There are plenty of shows out there that neither venue gets currently.

PVCH is harder to explain, except that there aren't very many similar venues in the metro area, and those that are haven't focused on booking these kinds of shows.

^Oh, for sure.

I think larger indie-ish bands like Modest Mouse, or the National, or Death Cab, or Chvrches, or Haim could pack the place.

And if it's successful, expand the indie net.

Anything to break the Dad Rock-Country-Christian-Dad Rock-Country-Christian cycle.

Do love the Wyclef/Symphony concept though.

The National is coming to the ST Johns Amph in May... already have tickets.. would have preferred Daily's Place but this show was a late add so i will take it.

Daily's Place has great sightlines, and modern amenities, but it's also pretty soulless.

Just kind of a stark, concrete bowl in the middle of a parking lot.

I'm not quite sure what it is, but it's still missing something to give it a little bit of character.

For anyone who is interested, super talented singer Storm Large will be performing with the Jacksonville Symphony in a couple of weeks at Jacoby Symphony Hall inside the Times Union PAC. March 2, 3 and 4 .

 "Crazy Arc of Love"  A steady diet of romantic love songs... with a twist.

Storm can do pretty much anything vocally so this should be a great date night choice for those of you tired of 'Dad rock'!

I haven't been to Daily's Place, but St. Augustine Amphitheater is also a big concrete bowl surrounded by a parking lot. The trees on the periphery help the ambiance, but all the housing developments and 10 pm curfew do not. I think the real difference is that the cachet that comes with St. Augustine stank is much difference than Jax Stadium District stank.

Yes, indeed. And for all those lamenting Jacksonville's lack of "noteworthy" acts please take a deep breath and give some more time for the city to get some momentum on having deep diverse musical acts. I still remember how back in the early 80's how Orlando was often mocked as BORE-lando due to the lack of quality concerts it could get. Only when they made significant improvements to their performing arts venues and built a world-class arena did they start attracting shows that would normally flock to Tampa, Jacksonville, and even Daytona Beach. 2 great quality outdoor venues in the region duking it out is a GOOD problem for North Florida to have especially when you compare that to the big bad Orlando metro area which technically has none.

I don't disagree (I love the place, but I would have loved whatever they built); I suspect that "missing something" factor changes somewhat when Duval Live! gets built.

I brought it up on this thread or another too, and the answer I got Steve was, "yes".

My issue was that the different groups on the same night sounded.... differently.   The highs were almost 'screechy' and IMO should have been EQd out.  Silversun Pickups sounded great.

The sound can be mixed and eq'd to an extent. What they can't fix with room correcting parametric eq is the massive amount hard surfaces (including the huge wall to the left of the stage) and the reflections that they create. The best thing that can be done without adding a hugely expensive amount of sound dampening is to fill the seats and keep the volume level lower. As with most amphitheaters, the sound will never be great, but it can be passable. I think that's fine for most types of music as long as the mixing is done well enough. People aren't expecting it to sound like Jacoby hall.

HA. Well said.  The best sound men start with everything on ZERO and move the volume tab up slowly and with a hierarchy appropriate to the music.

I have played on both stages and my experience was interesting.  When Jacksonville Symphony first read through the Harry Potter score (in preparation for our show at Daily's Place) on stage at Jacoby Hall it was absolutely astounding, thrilling!!  Once we got to Daily's Place the "magic" was gone, although most people I spoke with ( including several musicians) said it was too loud but clear.  As we performed the score with the movie it was "boomy", you could hear the reverberation in the room. Not enough to throw you off, but annoying nonetheless.

Taking Back Sunday and Coheed and Cambria on July 8th. YES.

Instead of seeing Coheed and Cambria, why not take shitty drugs, play dungeons & dragons and watch Lord of the Rings and Star Trek simultaneously? Pretty much the same thing.

We're not 18 anymore, so no need for taking shitty drugs - we can afford the good ones.

I hope you meant Shatner Star Trek and not this rebooted shit, otherwise I don't think I could respect any more of your opinions on what's cool or not anymore.  ;D

I love Steely Dan and am considering going just because who knows when I'll get another opportunity? Becker's dead and Fagen isn't going to live forever. I don't care about the Doobie Brothers, though.

EDIT: I'd probably be one of the few under-40 people there, too! What an event.

We saw them in June of 2016 up in Michigan.  Absolutely fabulous show.  It was SO disheartening to see Becker at the end of his time because the one time that Fagen turned the mic over to him, he went on an incomprehensible 3-minute monologue, talking about the old days (I think!).  It was uncomfortable, to say the least.  He really stayed way off to the side, playing bass.  Fagen was in the spotlight 98% of the time, and the travelling musicians (both instrumentalists and vocalists) were top notch.

As for the Doobies, I saw them at least seven times in the 70's and 80's.  They always put on a great show and the two main original songwriters and vocalists (Johnson and Simmons) have been with the group forever, so at least you will be seeing an authentic show, not some group of guys who travel under the name because the record label owns it.

Have fun!

But is it Steely Dan withouth Becker? I mean, they were basically a duo. I've no idea who's in the rest of the band these days, of course.

There are purists who would argue otherwise, but really, as far as the Steely Dan live experience goes, the focus is generally on Donald Fagen. Walter Becker would play his bass, occasionally he'd switch to guitar, and every show he'd sing a couple of songs. Aside from that last part, he tended to stay out of the spotlight. Now, if it had been Fagen who died and Becker who lived, and if Becker had decided to soldier on with the Steely Dan name, I'd have little-to-no interest in going.

I don't say the above to denigrate Becker's place in the band's body of work—he was just as much a driving creative force as Fagen was behind those Dan albums I love—but as far the live show goes, eh....

They were really never a duo, at least in the popular sense.  They were more of a couple of guys that always wanted the best musicians for a certain song, and would change the pieces until it sounded exactly like what they wanted.  If you look at the Aja album, for example, it is an amazing collection of jazz, featuring Steve Gadd, Wayne Shorter, Larry Carlton, Joe Sample, Lee Ritenour, and a few minor names in rock like Micheal McDonald and Timothy B. Schmit.  The only thing that remained pretty constant was their songwriting and their perfectionism.

Fair enough. I consider anything pre-(and post) Michael McDonald to not be 'real' Steely Dan.

Well, after the first few albums, it was just the two of them and whoever they brought into the studio. Which is kind of what I meant - Steely Dan really is/was the two guys. But yeah, Fagen was the more important of the two.

Kind of like Simon and Garfunkel. It's really Simon...with a smattering of Garfunkel when the notes were too high for Paul to reach.

Power and beauty in these two amazing pieces.  Worth hearing the pianist, he's fantastic.

He's playing with Wylde and co., not Sabbath.

SHALL. WE. PLAY. A. GAME? It's called outdoor venue Summer 2018 bookings. Now that the prime touring season is upon us I thought it would be fun to see how the regions 2 main outdoor musical venues compare so far. This only includes big-time musical or comedy events scheduled from now until the end of September and keep in mind a lot of late summer tours have yet to be booked (for instance Lynyrd Skynyrd has shows in Tampa And West Palm but there is no way in fuck they will not come back to North Florida given this tour they say will be their last). So here are the totals so far:

Daily's Place:   16
St. Augustine Amphitheater: 25

and for further comparisons...

Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheater:  24
Coral Sky Amphitheater:  24

Yes, since Ryan Murphy took over, the SAA has been on a meteoric rise.  It's a great venue despite the drive and their efforts with the Ponte Vedra Music hall are a nice complement to the Amphitheatre.   

Please, please Bold City; Pay attention to what they have done over the past 5 yrs and do your best to emulate it.  It would make Daily's place a exponentially better asset to downtown.

Orrrrrr have the people currently running Daily's Place have a clearer vision of what they want this venue to be besides booking big-time acts. What I see the St. Augustine Amphitheater do well besides attract headlining events is having the flexibility to do things that serve the community at large. For example they have a smaller more intimate stage that book local artists and less well known acts. They're also home to non musical events like record shows, farmers markets, night markets, fundraisers, and more. Because of this involvement with the community you don't hear a ton of complaints from residents in the area like parking, traffic, noise, or calls for them limiting the number of events (i.e. Seawalk Pavilion and St. Francis Field).

Daily's Place is definitely an asset for the City of Jax but it can take some years for this facility to truly become a gem and I hope it does, and this may sound heretical on this here message board, but the main difference between these 2 venues is one is run with a primary focus on adding value to the area while the other is run more focussed on adding value to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

I'd check your facts.

We can talk artist quality all day long, but when it comes to pure business, Daily's Place significantly outperformed both St. Augustine Amphitheater and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall combined in 2017.

And this was with Daily's Place only opening in May vs. a full year at both other venues.

St. Augustine Amphitheater + Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Total concerts: 182
Tickets sold: 182,000
Ticket revenue: $10.1 million

Daily's Place:
Total concerts: 32
Tickets sold: 165,000
Ticket revenue: $12.2 million

Source: http://www.jacksonville.com/news/20180406/dailys-place-more-concerts-amp-diverse-events-improved-amenities-for-second-season

Daily's Place wants to hold over 50 concerts this year, and plans to rent out the venue for events like graduations, cheerleading competitions, and conventions.

Key quote: "We complement each other very well. And the more successful entertainment events that are in our communities, it’s great for all of us." - Chad Johnson, Senior VP of Sales & Chief Content Officer, Jags/Bold Events.

Plenty of room for both venues.

I kind of look at Daily's Place as the AMC to St. Augustine's Sun-Ray.

Happy to see EVERYONE doing well.

Parking would definitely be included in ticket revenue, as Daily's Place ticket prices include parking. That said, it's worth pointing out that base ticket prices are around the same for major shows at both Daily's Place and St. Augustine Amphitheater ($49 at both for Styx, for example; $49 for Little Big Town vs. Thomas Rhett, etc.), even though the St. Augustine Amphitheater charges $20 for parking. So it ain't like Daily's Place is tacking on a mandatory $10-20 upcharge for parking. But even if we pretend like they are and adjust the above numbers accordingly, they'd still be crushing both St. Augustine venues combined. Even moreso I'm sure if you factor in concessions, which are plentiful and expensive (particularly beer) at Daily's Place, while quite limited at SAA.

I've got no horse in the race, I really like both venues, but I disagree with the original characterization that St. Augustine is "wiping the floor" with Daily's Place and should "take notes on running a successful venue."

The numbers simply don't back that up.

I need to make sure I get this correct.

When this epic Daily's Place/St Augustine Amphitheater battle is written about in history books, will Shaggy being at this concert not allow for the counting of Sting as a quality show for Daily's Place?

In all seriousness, Shaggy is pretty hot right now.

His collaboration with Sting blew up.

He was all over the Grammys.

He's got a new movie on Netflix.

Nothing makes sense in 2018.

Well, it's not the same, is it?

Sting and Shaggy have an album out. So it's likely the majority of the stuff they play will be off that record. And maybe some covers. It's also likely they will play some of each of their solo work (though if I were a betting man, I'd bet Sting's back catalogue will have more representation).

Sting on his own is likely too big an act to play Daily's Place.

I saw Shaggy in Tampa (he was one of the free concerts for the Super Bowl). He was super-hot at the time and was pretty great, to be fair. I like Shaggy and would probably be more likely to go see him than him with Sting.

I did!  We initially sat in our designated seats for The Offspring, but moved closer when it looked like there was plenty of room.  Unfortunately my group wanted to leave at about 10:50, so I didn't get to see all of 311.  I was a little bummed that security wasn't letting anyone mosh.  Jax can be so stuffy at times.

That seems like a good number to me. I assume they could get close to 50k.

^You'd think, but even at 32,000 tickets sold, the concert is currently in the red.

Break even is probably closer to 45k.

Can't say I understand the economics, but the concert has a $4 million price tag.

Nicest time of the year outside, and there are only three shows scheduled at Daily's Place through the end of the year.

A country show (Brett Eldredge) at the end of the month.

The symphony in mid-November.

Weezer in December.

Meanwhile, St. Augustine has Bob Dylan and Death Cab in the next two weeks.

Yes, but they do have a great new electronic billboard, perfectly viewed from the parking lot it sits in......

Meanwhile at the TU downtown, no functioning marquee (it's the original one, about 30 years old) for almost a year and no plan in place to replace it from what I understand.

Don’t take this to the bank just yet, but I hear The Stones may be playing at The Bank next spring. I don’t believe there are a ton of dates on the tour either, so it would be a big get for Jax.

Saw the Rolling Stones (Steel on Wheels Tour) at the old Gator Bowl with my dad and uncles in 1989. They inflated these big blow-up dolls of two girls in confederate flag bikinis when playing Honky Tonk Women.... the crowd went nuts.  Before the concert we ate a few Russ Does Specials at the Russ Does sandwich shop, while they sat on the tailgate of my uncle's old Ford pickup truck drinking Busch Light and shelling boiled peanuts. The group next to us were all wearing cutoff jean shorts- also drinking Busch Light. That evening encapsulated the kind of Jacksonville I remember growing up in.

If the Stones come back to TIAA Bank Field... I'll definitely be there. Hopefully Russ Does will be serving some steak-in-a-sacks beforehand.

Not only is this a good get but I'd be surprised if this is not a multiple-date show there. A few years ago he sold out Met Life Stadium here.

While it appears Daily's Place is holding it's own as far as events overall for the year I think the St. Augustine Amphitheater has it beat with events but the ultimate tale of the tape will be the final attendance numbers from Pollstar at the end of the year. With both venues  doing well, it's a big win for area concert fans.

Apparently either April 20th or April 24th. Online Miami's show is listed with the same two dates.

4/20 would be an interesting choice as Santana is already confirmed at St Augustine the same day. Seems like they would be competing for similar audiences.

Not sure if anyone noticed at the Jaguars game but Jaxson De Ville and the ROAR were wearing the Stones logo t-shirts early on in the game. Additionally, the had decals on the glass in the pools. 

You have to believe it's coming to TIAA Bank Field.

Speaking of potential shows, Shaky Knees (Atlanta) put out their lineup for next spring. This is one of Jax's best opportunities to grab relevant acts yearly.

Tame Impala are headlining. Last time they played Shaky Knees, Nashville snatched them up at the Ryman and Florida Theater didn't even take a look at them. Daily's Place and St. Auggie better be making a big run at them, as they are arguably one of the best bands of the decade. Beck, Interpol, Tears For Fears, Father John Misty, and Gary Clark Jr. are some other bands playing that local venues should make a run at.

And the winner is....St. Augustine. The Ampitheater snatched up Tame Impala the day after their set at Shaky Knees. They are also headlining Coachella this summer. Arguably one of best shows the Jax area has had in years. A LOT of people (myself included) consider Tame Impala to be the best rock band of the decade.

Some of you may recall me previously posting about offering to help the Florida Theater bring them here a few years ago, even offering to assume all risk with their booking fee, only to be ignored. Vintage Jax.
