Wayne Newton absolutely, positively, never-in-a-million years would have occurred to me. But it's quite possible he is the one who has played before the most. But somehow -- and no offense whatsoever intended to Mr. Newton (or his many fans on this board)... well, I guess I never thought of him as a musician. But, to be fair, I guess he is. It's just that I suppose I was fixated on rock musicians.
B.B. King I completely forgot about even though he's been out there since God's dog was a puppy. But a lot of his gigs have been intimate, little clubs... 150, 200 people or so.

I don't care who put more on than Bobby. Bobby is the best and has put on the best.

just another thought....

out of all the other people mentioned that have played a ton of gigs, does anyone even come remotley close to mixing up the setlist at each show as much as Bobby?

Hmmm... I had no idea Cheap Trick had done so many. But I'm thinking the number of people at Woodstock when Bobby was there with The Dead must equal quite a few Cheap Trick gigs. And I don't know if Cheap Trick did many stadium or festival gigs, either. Mostly because I was never into them.

Anyway, I know one can find out which bands grossed how much money... I wish there was a way to find out the answer to this, though, because I find it sort of interesting.



Ironic, Cheap Trick just played at least two local Long Island shows, and I don't follow them -- but a buddy was trying to get me to go. I think one was the theater at westbury, but the other show was in a small town on the border or Nassau / Suffolk County - Huntington NY. Not a place for a "headliner" like bobby.

You don't think every one of the 30,000 shows was mixed up?

Whatever the number, Bobby is up there. What amazes me is not many people have even heard of Bobby.
