Life is good. Life is very good. Today I received an e-mail that started with these words, “Thank you for shopping with TicketsNow. We have secured your “The Police” tickets.”
Yeah, I did it. I spent an outrageous sum of money for concert tickets. And I’m so very thrilled!
Just the other day, when I originally heard a blip on the radio that The Police would be coming to L.A. this spring, my interest level was about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 being the highest. A few seconds later, when I heard that my beloved Elvis Costello was the opening act, my interest level rose to a 9. Elvis? Opening for The Police? Too good to be true!
So good that after a full day of work and happy hour w/ coworkers, I still remembered to bring it up to Andy. We surmised that it’d probably be at one of those gargantuan humungaloid places and that the tickets would (a) sell out immediately and (b) cost $6,498 + your left eye and six pints of blood.
Out of curiosity, I googled today to find out just where said show is scheduled to take place and exactly how many months’ salary the tickets are going for. When I saw that the venue is none other than the Hollywood Bowl, I IMMEDIATELY whipped out my credit card!
