Rumor: BET Spring Bling back to Daytona?
The BCR crew are back in the building ready to bring you the hot news for 2010’s spring break season! Last year saw crowd reductions at all major events… This year the crowd totals should start to bounce back. On that note: I got an email asking if its true that BET will be bringing their Spring Bling concert back to Daytona. The short answer: I don’t know. The long answer: Sadly, the internet makes it really easy for people to fabricate stories without consequence. I believe shady promoters do this to make a quick dollar, but hey… I can’t say for sure. I do have a contact at BET and I will correspond with her tomorrow and see what she says. For the last couple of years BET has held it’s Spring Bling concert in Riviera Beach, FL. Based on crowd size and accommodations in the area I would not be surprised if they chose a more ‘commercial’ or ‘happening’ spot. Daytona has history no doubt, but the final say so on this issue is in the hands of BET.
Stay tuned, I will update you as soon as I hear something.
