subject: music midtown update #1


<cut>


we will be announcing the talent line up on march 13th. you can get a
complete listing via our website at:


     http://www.musicmidtown.com


late confirmations will be added on a regular basis so make sure you
check back.


the biggest change you will notice in the programming is the addition
of a large stage situated under a giant tent. this stage will feature
everything from polka and rockabilly to swing styled big band and
internationally flavored music.


<cut>


due to the overwhelming demand for tickets that we experienced last
year, there will be a limited number of tickets available and we
encourage that everyone purchase tickets early. tickets go on sale
friday, march 20th at all ticketmaster locations. we will also be
selling tickets with no service charge at the cotton club and at the
roxy theatre in buckhead on nights when shows are featured at these
venues. you can check out the show schedules for these venues via
our concert website at:


     http://www.consopro.com.


many of you know that this year will be our last year at the site
(peachtree and west peachtree and between 10th and 12th streets) that
we have called home for the past 5 years as construction of a hi-rise
will begin immediately following the festival.
