I think if I were a Xtian it would put me off, as I had paid to watch an international recording artist, not attend a church service which you can do for free on a Sunday.
Talking of opening acts I went to see Eric Clapton at the City Hall in the old days. Not to see Eric Clapton mind, who I have always thought is massively over-rated, but his opening act, the legendary Muddy Waters.
Anyway although the gig was sold out there couldn't have been more than 50 people in the hall when Muddy was playing and even my mate who had come with me was in the bar with everyone else. I went to fetch him out of there and overheard one bloke saying to another, "So who's the support act then?" "Dunno", his mate said, "Just some old black bloke, playing blues songs on a guitar!"
