Would you be interested in purchasing a 2006-2007Concert Venue Directory?
This is a comprehensive guide to stadiums, arenas, amphitheatres and auditoriums. 

The Directory includes a comprehensive listing of North American venues.

Information provided: 
Contact names 
Phone and fax numbers 
Email addresses (where available) 
Website addresses (where available) 
Facility capacities 
Rental and Box Office fees and more 

The price is under $90.00

Would this directory work for you?

If it does, you can lower the price of your question to compensate the
cost of the directory.

You can change the price by going to "My Account," 
selecting "My Unanswered Questions", clicking on the question, and 
then clicking on "Change Question Parameters" to modify the pricing. 

Let me know your thoughts.

I failed to mention that this is a 300 page directory.

In the absence of a file that meets your precise specifications, would
any or all of these databases constitute a sufficient answer?

Band Command

"Index of US States and Territories"
Musi-Cal Concerts

"Onlinegigs Music Venue Directory"

 Those are great sources for information, but the text file is the
only answer that will meet my needs.

Hello mkha98-ga,

6000 entries are what you?re looking for. At 2 minutes each to type
and link hypothetically, that?s over 200 hours of work at MINIMUM. Not
to mention the research time involved to find the information for the
database. All for $93.75 for the researcher?s 200+ hours of work.
They?d be making approx $0.47 an hour.

You may want to consider lowering the amount of venues you would like
and raising your question value. Maybe break this up into 12 different
$200.00 questions asking for a 500 venues apiece? That averages out to
about $9.00 an hour for the researcher who would undertake one of your
questions if each venue ONLY took 2 minutes to find, verify, and type.

I?d personally say 15-20 different $200.00 questions asking for 300
venues, considering research time, verification, and database
compiling to make it worth the researcher?s and your time.

Just a thought that might help you get your question answered?If you
have further questions about my idea, please respond.

 Thank you for your feedback. The brute force method is obviously the
wrong way to create this list. I am looking for somebody who can use a
little creativity to come up with the answer. This question is not for
There is no answer at this time.

Where do you see that there are 6000 venues.  I could convert the list
on bandcommand (or one of the other sites) into a text file but that
doesn't get you to 6000. Bandcommand is only 1330.

From the original question that was asked: "I would like the address
for 6,000 live music venues in the US."  That is where the number that
Nenna-GA referenced was sourced.
