Just a quick note, I asked for a big name performer to come to town, and while it did occur before 2008, R-Kelly did put on quite a show. Fire Works, Fire, Confetti, the works...(considering its Columbia). I have to commend the Colonial Center for bringing in the act. Hopfully now 2008 will bring someone even bigger and better that will perform in front of a sell-out crowd.
