Heck, we don’t even have time to comment on all the rumors and mumblings within the concert biz claiming that we’re doubling our per-click percentage for headline dates like the ones found in the schedules for Yanni and Phish, or raising our flat rate to look at support band schedules, like The Wallflowers appearing as “special guests” of the Counting Crows in December. Yeah, you can forget those rumors. Pollstar.com will cost you the same tomorrow as it did yesterday. No raise in rates. No boost in service fees. No per-capita gains.

And we don’t have time to discuss the latest gossip about us cutting back on our services. We’re still providing direct links from our home page to all major tours, such as Shania Twain, Sting and Eric Clapton. We’re still posting photographs of your favorite stars in action, like live shots of Iron Maiden and Ill Nino. Plus, we’re keeping those pop-up ads that Web audiences can’t do without. In short, Pollstar.com is like the Holiday Inn of third-party concert-info Web sites. No changes, no surprises, children welcome, but leave the dogs outside.

Nor do we have a few minutes to talk about those outright lies claiming we’re dropping our practice of hiring celebrity spokespersons to announce the new tours of the day. O.J. Simpson, Winona Ryder, Robert Blake – they’ve all graced our pages in the past, and we plan on continuing this tradition in the future, for our surveys indicate that concert fans feel assured when a big-name celeb announces a new show, like Lyle Lovett playing in Newark on January 31. In fact, we’re just moments away from inking a deal with the biggest celebrity in the entire music business. While we’re not quite prepared to tell you who he is at this time, we can tell you that he is a former child star, has something in common with Neil Armstrong and has his own ranch, where, like the Holiday Inn comparison in the preceding paragraph, children are always welcome.

Needless to say, we don’t have time to discuss what the future holds for Pollstar.com, but in this case, we’ll make an exception. After all you deserve an answer. If we’re not raising our rates, cutting back on services or dropping our famous pitch-people like Robert Downey, Jr. and Paris Hilton, just what is the destiny of the world’s favorite concert-info Web site in the brave new world of the 21st century? Just where are we going?

Hell if we know. But you gotta admit, we’re making good time.
