I know a scalper price is unacceptable. I swear at one point I was curled up in a ball on my couch crying. It was kind of strange. I am a big music lover, of course. I just had my heart set on seeing him perform. It just seemed meant to happen for me after I had been talking about it. I know I am so knew to it all. I don't even have any of his CD's or albums. After watching the movie, I went to playlist.com and have a playlist of his music to listen to while I'm on the computer. I'm going to Salt Lake next week and I'm visiting a album store to see what they have. Not interested in downloading music, I'd rather have something in my hand.
I'm an old "deadhead", use to follow the Grateful Dead...that's where Box of Rain comes from, it's a song. I always call fans, heads.
I might have been missing out all of those years but, it's also kind of cool to be new to it all, discovering things for the first time.
I was recently on a Nick Cave tour, his newest CD was new to me, plus I didn't know a lot of his work. It's such a wonderful way to become familar with someone...to see them perform. It's like meeting the musican, the music and words with such a open and fresh feel.
I know how lucky I am. I totally appreciate that I have this opportunity. I told my friend that I wanted to get the expensive ticket, 250, she said she couldn't affort that I told her I would pitch in an extra hundred...so in the end I am paying about what I thought I'd be paying, just getting one ticket.
Sorry I have to go on but I remember back in the Grateful Dead days I told this scapler,"deadheads do not buy scalper tickets, you'll see"....I got into that show trading my backrow ticket for his frontrow ticket! I guess times have changed. It's ok.
I'll be sure to let you know on this forum if I hear of any extra tickets! I promise.
