Name recognition.  If they listed the actual cities these places are in no 
one would know where they were, Duluth, Sunrise, Wantagh, Indian Wells, 
Bristow, Noblesville, etc.  I've been to Atlanta more times than most and I 
had no clue were Duluth was.  Sometimes they can't even get the state right. 
How about a show listed as Philadelphia where the venue is actually in New 
Jersey. :)

It's real fun when you collect shows or do concert research.  You have to 
know Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ are the same concert. Then you have 
things like Largo, Landover, and Washington DC, all the same place.
