Okay, how did this happen?
5/15/79, Journey, 2,881

7/30/80, Journey, 14,279

I'm thinking the '79 show actually drew 12,881.  There's no way their audience increased that much in a year.  They released Departure in the meantime, and sure, "Any Way You Want It" was kind of a hit, but not to that extent.  Furthermore, REO Speedwagon, a comparable band, drew almost 13,000 in 1979.  Not only that, but on 5/19/79, four days later, The Charlie Daniels Band drew over 12,000?  It doesn't make sense.
