Just a few weeks ago, a collection of renowned musicians hit the road in honor of The Last Waltz and its 40th anniversary. The Band’s final performance has been well known as one of the best live shows of all time, and thus it required an all-star cast of characters to do it justice. Warren Haynes and Don Was led the charge on the first tour, and they’ve done it again with a great group of artists for another spring tour schedule!Touring from March 30th through April 15th, Haynes and Was will be joined by the likes of Dr. John, Jamey Johnson, Terence Higgins, Danny Louis, and Mark Mullins, along with very special guests Cyril Neville, Dave Malone, and Bob Margolin. Dr. John was an original performer on The Last Waltz, so it will be quite special to see him celebrate the anniversary of such a momentous occasion. The horn section will also be using the same arrangements as composed by the late great Allen Toussaint.You can see the new tour dates below, and head to Warren Haynes’ website for details.The Last Waltz 40 Spring TourMarch 30 at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie in Dallas, TXMarch 31 at Revention Music Center in Houston, TXApril 1 at Stubb’s Austin in Austin, TXApril 2 at Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in San Antonio, TXApril 7 at The Fox Theatre in Detroit, MIApril 8 at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, OHApril 9 at The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, ILApril 13 at THE ORPHEUM THEATRE in Los Angeles, CAApril 14 at Harrah’s Resort Southern California in San Diego, CAApril 15 at Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco, CA
As we announced, Nedo Pinezić and David Peranić announced a survey for renters of family accommodation, in order to better analyze the situation on the ground between renters, and concrete steps on how and where to move forward in the future. The survey was conceived through five questions. To the first question: Do you work seasonally or all year round ?, the majority (74.2%) answered that they are seasonal renters, while 25.2% of respondents declared themselves as year-round renters. Although these data do not say much, because somewhere the season is longer or shorter, and there is no exact geographical division, nor by the quality of accommodation, which also depends on the length of the season. However, for the purposes of the survey and the interpretation of the results of the surveyed renters, we know that these are mostly seasonal renters. How much of a drop have you had this season in the number of nights? – is a question that provides more specific information.

The survey was completed by 1.669 renters, which is a large sample, in line with the previous inertia of renters for any initiatives or surveys. Source: Dantes At the end of the survey, 70% of renters concluded that they are still satisfied with this tourist season, according to May 15 forecasts. On the other hand, 8.7% of the surveyed renters achieved the same results as last year (within 10%), and a small part, or 2.2% of the respondents, achieved a growth of 10% and more compared to last year. For the end, Pinezić and Peranić are inviting tonight (Wednesday) from 20.30 pm to Dantes FB Live where they will comment live on the results. Thus, 36% of respondents worked significantly worse than last year or had a drop of 50%. The second part, more precisely 30% of them, performed worse than last year in the context of a decline of 20 to 25%. 22.9% of them achieved more than 60% worse results than last year. 28.2% Same price as last year22.9% Prices less by 20% than last year19.9% Prices less by 10% than last year13.6% Prices less by 30% than last year7.4% Prices less by 40% than last year6.2% Prices less by 50% and more than last year1.9% Prices more than last year – We have an extremely large sample, which allows us to obtain objective results, Pinezić and Peranić point out and add: – Some of the answers were very short, and there were indeed extensive answers. In the coming weeks, we will read and systematize all the answers (there are close to 7.000 entries), and we will publish separate articles for each question as the conclusion of the survey and our comment.”. When it comes to prices, we know that this year the accommodation was filled at much lower prices, both in hotel and private accommodation. And this is shown by the survey data, where about 70% of respondents reduced prices.
