Wow, Spectra seems to be doing a pretty good job so far. I'm also surprised to see BTS performing there, as they could have likely gone to AT&T and sold out that arena.

I've always preferred open air stadium concerts.

I just hope that Spectra is able to provide a fan experience that makes it a worthy competitor. I know the Cotton Bowl isn't AT&T stadium but if fans feel like they are having fun it doesn't matter if Jerry Jones's private Art collection is on the wall.

They need to take the Winter Classic model of providing a genuine fairground experience and apply it to all their events that attract 75,000+ people, especially Pride. Maybe next year Spectra can attract a big enough concert to perform the Saturday before the parade and keep the Midway open all day Saturday and Sunday. Fair Park becomes "Pride Park" for one weekend. That's the only way I can see a path to attracting half a million visitors to this event.
