BY CLIFF RADEL The Cincinnati Enquirer When the going gets tough, Greater Cincinnatians go outdoors to a concert. Despite a summer-long recession that killed concerts across the country, Riverbend, Kings Island's TimberWolf Amphitheater and the Cincinnati Zoo had successful seasons. Amusement Business, a concert industry publication, reported outdoor summer shows across the country were off 15. Tours by Whitney Houston, David Lee Roth figures of 13,844 and 12,914. In other markets, Steve Winwood and Huey Lewis & the News played to crowds in the low four figures. At Riverbend, Winwood opened 1991's contemporary music concert season before a crowd of 10,135. Lewis' attendance figure was 12,320. Increased subscription sales Riverbend's subscription series ticket sales were up 20 from 1990.

The Zoo's Jazzoo '91 series and Tim-berWolf's 1991 season increased, respectively, by 5 and 8. In 1991, Riverbend staged 53 concerts including performances by the facility's landlords, the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops orchestras. Total attendance for the amphitheater's eighth season was 405,384. That includes a record-setting three sellouts for Jimmy Buffett. His July 30, July 31 and Aug. 2 concerts respective attendance: 18,252, 18,242 and 18,110 are the top-three selling shows in the site's history. Compared to 1990's per-show average attendance, Riverbend was a tad off. Last year, the amphitheater staged 55 shows and averaged 7,680 tickets sold per concert. In 1991, the per-show average was 7,648. "We had a season of spectacular successes and very steady performers," says Mike Smith, River-bend's general manager. "All the recession did was keep a good season from becoming a tremendous one." How did Riverbend buck the recession? Smith attributes it to: Surprise turnouts Don Henley and Steve Miller topped their 1990 totals with respective did well considering how soft the year has been elsewhere," says Carolyn Boos, Kings Island's manager of marketing communications. While other amphitheater's seasons have come to an end, Timber-Wolf's has one more show to go with Rythm Syndicate on Oct. 12. The zoo's Jazzoo '91 concerts set an attendance record for the 6-year-old series. The six-show set, down from seven in 1990, sold 1,069 more tickets, 19,997 vs. 18,908, in 1991. "This was the best attended of all the Jazzoos," says Donna Oeh-ler, the zoo's director of events and promotions. Jazzoo '91 also had the most-star-studded lineup in the series' history with Tony Bennett, B.B. King, Wynton Marsalis and Bruce Hornsby & the Range. Hornsby was the lone artist to sell out the zoo's 3,600-seat Coors Peacock Pavilion. The success of Jazzoo '91 has Oehler looking ahead to 1992. "I want to add a Zoo Blues series in addition to Jazzoo," she says. "It's in the talking stages right now. But it would either be a series of blues concerts or a weekend blues festival."
