Marty: “The last time Tap toured America, they where, uh, booked into 10,000 seat arenas, and 15,000 seat venues, and it seems that now, on the current tour they're being booked into 1,200 seat arenas, 1,500 seat arenas, and uh I was just wondering, does this mean uh...the popularity of the group is waning?”From the NY Times “Kerry pulls ads from some states as spending is limited”:
Ian: “Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no...no, no, not at all. I, I, I just think that the.. uh.. their appeal is becoming more selective.”
Tad Devine, a chief strategist for Mr. Kerry, said the campaign's diminished presence on television in certain states should not be construed as a sign of faltering."It's not a big college town."
"We're not out, even if we're not on TV," he said. He described the campaign's strategy as "opportunistic," reserving its resources to take advantage of future opportunities.
