Andrea did a good job. Alan missed an opportunity to generate interest. Paisley is not in a financial position to play hide and seek with fans.

Someone on Twitter told me that Alan discussed planning more live events at Paisley. We knew of this approach before the pandemic. So, that detail isn't new. Also, someone asked if the upstairs rooms would be opened on the tour, and Alan said no. Alan said more artifacts will be added to the tour.

Was that it? Nothing further about Celebration 2020?

Agree. Andrea got a few "fan" questions in but Alan seemed to dance around each one, in my opinion.

Surprises are great, but people during an recession do not spend their money on mysteries. The expect the unexpected concept is not going to generate the revenue that Paisley needs to survive. It is in a hard to get to suburb of MPLS and the city is not exactly a tourist destination for 9 months of the year due to weather and this recession is going to be bad and there will be multiple waves of this pandemic over the next 2 years.

Instead, there is a way to tell us exactly what is being planned without spoiling the tour experience, i.e., we plan to screen the following Prince concerts at Paisley this fall, etc.
