Though Raines has his share of success stories, like all artist managers, he's made some mistakes. I did a Charlie Peacock tour too quickly based on his critical acclaim.
I put him out there way too fast and in halls that were too big. I didn't spend enough time getting to know what the essence of that artist was before I did a tour on him. It was my mistake and an injustice to Charlie as well. That's proba- bly one of my biggest regrets over the last seven years.
What is it that, when you do it just feels right? And the second part is that we take a very focused strategic emphasis.
It's not about maximizing short-term success. The approach we want to take is about a long- term career that lasts at least a lifetime.

He knew the subject matter. A few years ago, in the Super Bowl host city, the league started the NFL Expe- rience, a temporary theme park with concerts, appearances by players, amusement games, and a variety of fes- tivities. The performances under the concert- series umbrella will be separately ticket- ed events not included in the NFL Ex- perience admission. One reason for the NFL's expan- sion into concerts is simply to keep lo- cal promoters from taking advantage of the Super Bowl.
For years, rights to use the local venues have been included in a city's bid- ding process to attract the game. How- ever, Garber says, the league never uti- lized that benefit until now.

However, the artists' respec- tive representatives say both have expressed interest in the event. Anita Baker is also reported as a scheduled performer, but her representatives could not be reached at press time to confirm. The common thread these artists have, according to Robertson, is "they are about promoting inner peace. Until you have that, you can't have outer peace.
