So what if $5 from your AC/DC concert ticket goes to support them? At least it stays in the community.
I'm opposed to all corporate subsidies, Jets included. But if its not a big deal, then it shouldn't be a big deal to tack the $500/year I pay in entertainment taxes onto the price of your tickets for these events? Surely, the people who value the staff and performers would be the ones paying their own freight in admissions, no?
