"I don't know that 25% is viable, but what I do know is that if we are closed that is not viable," says Cabaniss, who believes his venues like the 500-person The Kessler in Dallas can open in late June or early July. "It is going to be a minute before the Rolling Stones decide to rebook their tour and come to the Cotton Bowl [stadium in Dallas]. But we have a lot of artists, we have a lot of venues.
