it’s all happening…

May 14, 2013

I’ve got my flight and hotel booked for Chicago. I’m still trolling Stub Hub for the perfect seat location that won’t cost me a month of rent. I’m restricting my own options by holding out for a physical, UPSable, actual ticket and not a crappy downloadable one. I’m a sucker for nostalgia and if I’m going to pay a week’s income to fulfill a life dream, goddamn it I want a real ticket that I can frame and keep on the mantle next to photos of my grandchildren. Downloaded, printed-out, e-tickets are one of the worst things that ever happened to concerts. Who is going to treasure a piece of crumpled up printer paper with Ticketmaster ads all over it? Gag me.

I digress. The point of the story is I’M GOING TO SEE THE ROLLING STONES and I’m freaking pumped.

Also, in related news Brett Morgen’s fabulous Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane will be released in the USA on DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital video next Tuesday. This is one I will definitely be adding to my library.

Looking forward to sharing my Stones experience with y’all. Prep yourselves for an exclamation point onslaught. Sorry in advance.

    I’m with you on the ticket thing, I saw the stones in 2007 and they still did real ones then. Just wish I could see them at Glastonbury.
