Bad weather does not deter faithful fans. One die-hard country music entertainer, added to an estimated 10,000 country music fans in KSU Stadium, equaled both awareness and support for the die-hard American farmer. The cool, late summer rain did not dampen the spirit or enthusiasm of Nelson and Family as they performed in concert after the Austin Peay 26-22 upset of the Wildcats the 1987 football season home opener. In an interview before the show, Nelson talked about the plight of the farmer and about his Farm Aid shows. " The farmer needs to be able to get a good price for his product, " Nelson said. " Farm Aid and shows like this are intended to do what I ' m doing right now — talk about it. We are trying to raise the level of awareness because people don ' t really know how serious the farm problem is in this country. " Besides bringing attention to the farmers ' the concerts are also intended to provide som e financial relief. However, Mike Jones, K- State athletic business manager, said the concert sponsored by the K-State athletic department and Wrangler and Projects West, didn ' t even hit the break-even point. " In order for Farm Aid to have received any revenue from the ticket sales, an additional 3,000 tickets needed to be sold, " Jones said. " At that point, Farm Aid would have received $2 from each subsequent sale. " Jones estimated that 17,000 tickets were sold. " Only 5,000 student were sold for the game and concert, and for every student ticket sold, three to four adult tickets were sold, " Jones said. Jones attributed the low ticket sales to the fact the concert was held on Labor Day weekend. Though the problems were not solved or they were put aside for a while as Nelson opened the show with " Whiskey River. " And as Nelson sang the first few bars of " Blue Eyes Cryin ' in the Rain, " the heavens opened up and the rain fell. Members of the K-State Rodeo Club, hired to assist Nelson ' s crew, scrambled to cover the band and equipment with large sheets of plastic. While the continued and danced, Nelson sang a few of his hits, including Country Music singer Willie Nelsor waits for the end of the K-State Austin Peay game to perform it KSU Stadium. Approximate) 10,000 people attended the game and concert on Sept. 5. (Photo Jeff Weatherly) " All of Me " and " My Heroes Have Always Been as well as old county) standbys like " You Wen Always on My Mind, " " Sta ) a Little Longer " and " I You ' ve got the Money, I ' ve Got the Time. " Nelson, who claimed was " a little unsure " about this type of concert at first summed up the evening himself and the fans endured the rain: " I like any type of concert.
