I got an email from the Bon Jovi tour promoter saying that presale tickets went on sale at noon today. Yesterday I checked Ticketmaster (or Ticketbastard, as my friend Jaime calls them), which said the presale tickets through the promoter went on sale at 9:00 this morning, along with a presale for American Express customers.
The countdown was on all moring. I woke my hubby up this morning by saying, “2 hours 30 minutes till we get Bon Jovi tickets.” I continued that countdown when I got to work too, much to the chagrin of my co-workers.
At 9:00 I got on ticketbastard and scored some excellent seats. Floor seats, 2nd row of the 3rd section. I noticed it only said “American Express” presale and never asked for a presale password, but I didn’t think about it. Well……………The initial email was right. Promoter presale doesn’t start till noon. I don’t have an American Express, so I had to surrender my excellent seats. The pact with God about curbing my potty mouth went down the toilet. I was cussin’ like a friggin’ sailor.
