Concerts on weeknights

Is it just my imagination, or are an increasing number of concerts for established acts in the big cities taking place on weeknights – “school” nights to be precise, Sunday to Thursday? It’s like the promoters know they can fill a venue in Melbourne, any day of the week, so they go for the weeknights. And they save the weekend night slots they aren’t sure they could fill during the week — lesser-known acts, and performances in smaller towns.

I’m not complaining about a specific concert… it’s just that it seems like there’s been a few recently scheduled on inconvenient nights. Oh well.

Want to know something weird? Even in Canada, I’ve noticed that :O Because two good Canadian acts, that I’d love my friends to see -> both on weeknights, when they know they’ll sell out anyhow. Sarah McLachlan, last week, and Avril Lavigne in a couple of weeks. Other acts as well as you said. Conspiracy theories LOL……

Yeah! I mean, it used to be the thing to go to a concert on a Saturday night, and then they were moved to Friday, and now most of my faves have been doing them on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
