My point is that many acts including SN can only fill an arena if they have an act from classic rock era opening up. When they go it alone they play ampitheaters, Casinos, theaters state fairs. People have tried to argue with me on social media that SN can fill an arena on her name alone these days and I say she can't. There is no question she still sells tickets but if she did a tour next year with say Vanessa Carleton or Michael Grimm opening she wouldn't be playing arenas. She would need a strong opening act like The Pretenders to fill up the arenas. Look at her 2011 and 2012 tour. She played the 5,000 seat Fox Theater in Detroit, The Seneca Falls Casino in Niagara Falls NY, one of the Casinos in OK. Not all but most of the big USA venues she played were opening up for Rod and not headlining herself. If I am not correct most of her tours have been in outdoor sheds and not primarily in arena's. In Toronto the first time she played an arena there was in 2011 opening up for Rod and then her 24 Karat tour brought her back to the same venue. Every other time she has played the CNE, RBC Budweiser Stage, or the old Kingwoods Music Theater an outdoor venue at Canada's Wonderland.

Both her and Lindsey played the 5,000 seat Casino Rama in Rama Ontario. She in 2007 and 2008 and he in 2012.
