The Death Of Arena Rock

Those giant arena-size rock concerts – did they ever make sense? Now they seem like dinosaurs from another age. “One pictures thousands of minions working in warehouses on computer run sets, and one wonders why. The technology involved is both mind boggling and useless – unless some other use can be found for giant human gerbil-balls, in much the same manner that cell phones came of astronautry. Arena rock seems cheesy now even at its best, but one reason for the obsolescence is simply that it outpriced itself.”
