Ultimate Song and Dance

Now it’s 3000 jobs and $900 million per year

It looks like Ultimate Concerts and Napoleon Brewer have “caught their second wind” and are gearing up for another push into Cleveland County on June 2, 2009. The company will be hosting a job fair for those interested in becoming concert promoters, booking agents, web programmers, paralegals, and various other exciting careers.

Brewer has stated that he has office space rented in Charlotte, but the Shelby location has not been confirmed. Also, a deal/partnership with Discover (card) has not been confirmed, as of this writing.

What really impresses me is that Ultimate Concerts has now graduated to using Twitter to communicate with potential employees. Their myspace page is still available, even though their original ultimateconcerts.com is being revamped, according to Mr. Brewer. I guess there is a lot of work to do and many people to put in place if this project intends to employ 3000 people and reap possibly $900 million per year. Oh, and produce and promote those 8000 concerts. By the way, has Mr. Brewer noticed that our economy isn’t exactly bustling along with herds of people having money to spend for concert tickets to see and hear virtually unknowns?

Allow me to repeat something from an older article relating to this same topic. Mr. Brewer, on your myspace site, you have a news release, posted on November 2, 2007, that says you will have created ten thousand (10,000) jobs in the Detroit area by the end of the first quarter of 2008. Could you tell us how that worked out? Proof, you say? Sure thing. And don’t worry, I have a snapshot of the page so that it doesn’t slip down the old memory hole.
