Analyze how music in Sioux City has impacted the town from the 1800’s to now.

When Sioux City has had music artists perform, people have paid money to buy the tickets. Some people come from out of town, and have paid money to stay in our hotels. When people stay at our hotels, they eat at our restaurants, and sometimes shop at our stores. So music has provided extra money to Sioux City. Also, larger places have been built so bigger acts can perform here.

The Academy of Music wasn’t big enough, so the Peavey Grand Opera House was built. The Sioux City Auditorium wasn’t big enough, so the Tyson Events Center was built.
