Written on Open Letter: Knoxville, About That Dave Chappelle Show...:

I have always been a proud East Tennessean until last Thursday night. I wanted to beat the hell out of the people that ruined a show that could of been a once in a lifetime show for me and 99% of the others in attendance. Why did we let 10 people out of 1631 ruin the show? Why can't we ( the audience ) take these idiots out ourselves? The sorry staff at the Tennessee Theater sure didn't do their job. I'm pissed off and not just because I feel like I wasted $120. I guess Dave feels like he's been doing this long enough that he shouldn't have to deal with hecklers and the truth is, he shouldn't. That being said, he poked the lion and then let it take over his show. Why didn't he point these idiots out and make them feel like the white trash they are, in front of the whole crowd. I guess I'm just trying to point blame because of the terrible night and birthday present I gave my wife........now I have to buy her something else. Back to the Tennessee Theater, besides the obvious, I think you get at least 50% of the blame for not getting these people out. I personally watched one “security” member go back to the same person twice and tell him to shut up. Guess what, he was there for the whole show and was running his jaw even as he was walking out. That guy can be thankful I'm not the person I was 10 years ago or I would have thrown his sorry a$$ over the balcony. As far as serving alcohol, I enjoy having a few beers while I watch a show and if you don’t know how to act, stay home. About 10 years ago we had some idiot that kept running his mouth at a Kenny Wayne Shepard show at the Tennessee Theater, we didn’t have to ask security to remove him because I told him if he didn’t shut up I was going to smash his mouth. The guy shut up and never said another word. Maybe more people need to speak up and let these idiots know we’re not going to put up with it. I read another post where someone went to the show in Chattanooga and it was great. No hecklers, no BS. I guess that shows you it was the venue and not the performer. Stay classy Knoxville
