The owners of the Blues, who control Kiel Opera House, are booking and hosting 200-300 weddings, banquets, private and corporate events, book signings denying the presentation of music in the great main theater. This is in violation of federal anti trust laws by restraining the trade of the opera house to protect the Fox Theater, which is not as good and never will be, and to protect the stupid fear by the hockey arena the opera house could hurt it.


It is the no-compete leases and restrictions in the St. Louis entertainment industry that killed it, killed its downtown, killed it as a destination and killed it as a center for music arts and culture.


The same perps, along with the zoo and museums are squeezing down the MUNY and they too have been told to go into the special events business.  so some beautiful nights in September will be denied to 9,000 paid, while preferred special interests hold their 'events' at the MUNY.


St. Louis is over.
