Bob Hamrick has a commentary in today’s Eagle urging his fellow Wichitans to stop whining about the Rolling Stones concert. Some of the naysaying includes: Tickets cost too much. So what if we got the Stones, so did Missoula. They still haven’t sold out the stadium. And now, no one has heard of the opening band. “Nothing is ever quite right here in River City,” Hamrick wrote.
Our editorial today also notes that those who seem to take pleasure in arguing that there’s nothing to do in Wichita certainly can’t say that this weekend — if they ever can. Besides the Stones concert, options include the first Kansas Book Festival today and Saturday at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, the Downtown Chili Cookoff and the Great Plains Renaissance Festival. There are also concerts, a rodeo, theater performances and much more.
As Hamrick put it: “All you have to do is show up, shut up and listen.”
