MESA, Az.--Timeless 1960s rockers Gary Puckett and B.J. Thomas headlined two sold out shows earlier this month at Valle del Oro (Valley of the Gold) off of Highway 60 in the Mesa desert. The over-55 vacation resort is designed for people with R.V.'s (Recreational Vehicles).
Not Rock n' Viagra.
Some stories need no introduction.
There are 1,800 parking spaces at Valle del Oro.
If you count at least two people per R.V., that means at least 3,600 people live here. The concert hall has an occupancy of 1,345. There is money to be made. Apparently there is an emerging motor home music circuit. The Oak Ridge Boys sold out two Feb. 23 shows at Valle del Oro. Shania Twin (Donna Tremblay) is a Shania Twain impersonator appearing here on March 9. Twin is at the Val Vista Village R.V. Park on March 10 and on March 11 she motors over to the Sunflower R.V. resort.
The shows are open to the public. I saw a small Valle del Oro concert notice in the Arizona Republic...........
