Why all of SH fighter that do demonstration is only dual-seat version?

I think most of fighters in whose agility performence of single version is better than dual-seat version, so I wonder why only dual seat version of SH do airshow not single version?

The main reason is because the majority of Super Hornets are F models (2-1, F-E), plus they tend to bring two seaters to airshows so they can give pax rides to VIPs etc whilst there.

Could that be it??????????
Defence experts and VIPs get to have test flight

Plus as much of the time is over looked the flight too and from the show can be considered a nice gift/ training ex for a younger pilot. Which also ties into what jezza was saying. The military/airforce is always looking to get more for their PR bucks.
