Untouchables and bringing sexy back…

Some entertainers are considered untouchable.  The Paramount just isn’t big enough to present an “arena-worthy” star like Elton John, Billy Joel, Bette Midler or…. Bob Dylan.  But one can dream right?

From the September 17, Austin American-StatesmanJoe Gross had this to say about Bob Dylan in Zilker Park for ACL:

“Hey, man, you wanna come back and do five shows at the Paramount, you have my money. You wanna come back and do Stubbs, I’ll give you a chance. But in a field at ACL? Never again.”

I have always said that no matter what the show, it’s always going to be better at the Paramount.  Thanks for making my case Joe.  Oh, and by the way, the offer stands Mr. Dylan.  5 nights whenever you want to come.  Same holds true for the other untouchables.

On a separate note, I have decided to bring sexy back.  I mean, Justin Timberlake made a run at it but I don’t think he ever quite got there.  So, from this point forward, I think the Paramount is Ground Zero for sexy in Austin… great shows, great talent, great drinks… all in the sexiest venue in Austin.  At least our St. Cecilia is sexier than the Goddess of Liberty on top of the Capitol.

    Does this mean “clothes optional”???
    At my age that could be fatal and would scare the little ones.

  2. It’s a song dear. My grandchildren play it all the time. Keep your clothes on for goodness sake.

  3. Oh, I am sure he didn’t mean it that way. The Paramount is kind of like a man in a tux or a woman in a Chanel suit…classically sexy. I was at Wynton, Ken, and that WAS a sexy show. Congratulations. Keep it coming…

  4. Oh, a song…I get it now. My bad. Barry Manilow, he writes the songs, don’t you know. Now THAT is sexy…you get him there at the Paramount and Thelma will be on the front row…with my blouse on, of course.

  5. Hey. What a great idea. I think people think of the Paramount as old and stuffy when it is actually really cool. Your programs are definately the coolest shows in Austin. Why not make the whole thing sexy. I for one am tired of eating dust and bugs in the middle of Zilker Park or fighting the heat at Stubbs or the Backyard. The Paramount is the place man.

  6. Bring it back!

  7. Could you bring in a Vegas Lounge act every now and then….cool!

    [We have been trying for Tom Jones for years!!!! Vegas is on our radar now as much as NYC. I gotta tell you though, go see Tuna Does Vegas and then come back for Dame Edna in January. That is SEXY!!!!- Ken]
