Deja Vu Presentation of SAVE OUR SPAC (S.O.S.)

Maybe this presentation will help you understand that the old Special Events (old SPAC)  has been taken over by (in succession) SFX/Clear Channel/Live Nation  TO THE DETRIMENT OF SPAC’s CORE MISSION  to PROMOTE the CLASSICAL ARTS.

Basic Question: Why is the NEW CONTRACT with Live Nation EARNING SPAC LESS MONEY than the old contract?  Everything else has gone up; EXECT SPAC’s COMPENSATION ; IT’S GONE DOWN.  IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.

SPAC doesn’t even get a taste of the profits – just a one time yearly fee with a bonus for over-attendance beyond a certain figure.
