I have expressed gratitude for the patience and great customer service we receive from the BMIFC and Stiletto crew.
Can you imagine being a Hilton employee? Okay, now imagine being a Hilton employee when Barry's performing. Or worse yet, when he cancels. I shudder to think. I believe I would get an instant migraine if Barry cancelled. Why?
The Manilow fans ... that's why.
They must have bad dreams about it, and hopefully get complimentary drinks at Tempo for their troubles.
It would not be so bad if it were just the fans that were in Vegas with tickets in their hands. But, they have to field phone calls from people in states far away, no where near the Hilton with no tickets for the show. They are just concerned. Yup, the fans sitting behind their computers are calling the hotel to find out why Barry cancelled. All of a sudden, the internet is abuzz with assumptions and rumors. This person calls and they hear this, another person calls and gets something else. It just turns into a bunch of different stories and no one really knows until something official comes out.
The Manilow fans surely generate a lot of revenue for the hotel, but I know the fans also generate a lot of problems. I have seen how rude some can be and it is really embarassing because we all get lumped together.
When you call to make reservations, there is always that question "what brings you to the Las Vegas Hilton?" I wonder if they are asking that to flag the reservation -POSSIBLE LOONEY MANILOW FAN!
Okay, my conspiracy mind is working in overdrive again but is that really too far fetched?
