OVERVIEWThe Lets Go Back Tour &amp; Concert Series is a 70s, 80s, 90s, and the present Soul/R&amp;B/Jazz/Latin/Funk/Disco/Gospel/Rap concert series, bringing free concerts to Conyers, GAs richly grand, historic, and nostalgic communities.This concert series is a much-needed, free public event that will encourage and motivate Conyers, GA residents to enjoytheir own community. The benefit of these premium concerts will be that they will create added notability, and an influxof new tourism into Conyers, GA. This equates to new monies coming into Conyers, GA community, which will translateto increased retail revenue funneled into Conyers, GA communities.Why bring The Lets Go Back Tour &amp; Concert Series to Conyers, GA? Conyers is a key, emerging locale, and is asignificant backdrop for the ever-growing Rockdale County. Conyers has had no concert series for its residents. Otherlocalities in the Atlanta area have hosted their own concertsinconveniently causing Conyers residents and surroundingdistricts to have to travel some distances to enjoy these events.Conyers, GA has no concert series that could truly highlight its magnificence. This means, it does not currently benefitfrom the annual influx of dollars that are brought into other Georgia localities. The Lets Go Back Tour &amp; ConcertSeries is just the vehicle needed to generate that much-desired traffic to Conyers, GA. The positive monetary effect tothe community would also be noteworthy.http://letsgobacktour.webs.com/CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE:This document and any attachments contain private, confidential, and privileged material intended for the sole use of the recipient, and those who have been authorizedto receive it.
