Sheer size of city dictates a lot of tours, and I think the Greater Cleveland area is bigger than Columbus, and certainly Cincy. And I'm moving to Indiana where NO bands come, so don't get too greedy.
The thing I like is that most likely a tour is going to come within two and a half hours of Cleveland if it doesn't come to Cleveland (Columbus, Detroit, Pittsburgh) It's a great location for shows.
