Fuck yeah!!

This day = AMAZING. And it's only 1:03 pm.

OKAY so here's what happened.

A few days ago, on the 19th, I heard something on the radio about Roger Waters coming to my city. For those of you who don't know, Roger Waters was the bass player for Pink Floyd from 1965-1983, about, till he left due to tensions within the band and himself (meaning they hated each other...they don't anymore though).

Right so the presale was from the 19th to the 23rd. I however could not buy tickets then because fucking stupid Ticketmaster has the presale for only American Express credit cards. WTF?

Then, this morning, I was sleeping in because I was really tired and my bed was nice and warm. My mom came home from her class at like 10:30 or something (she's taking this thing about oil and gas at the university), came upstairs, and said "When did the tickets go on sale?" Course I was like "Um what?" cuz I'd just gotten out of bed the minute she walked in, and I thought she'd be pissed off at me for sleeping in.

So she told me she thought that they were on sale today, so I turned on the comp, looked for tickets, and I got some. They were expensive, the most expensive ones, so I figured they were good seats. However when I tried to pay for them using my mom's MasterCard, it wasn't working. And I lost my place in line for the tickets.

I went back and did it again and guess what.


Same price as the previous tickets too.

Damn right.

My parents said it's like a birthday present, as my birthday is on June 11. Course the concert is like on the 24th but still.

They also said that I could go with a friend if I could find one who wanted to go...and who could pay me $150 for the ticket. Yes that's how expensive they are. BUT. The Rolling Stones floor seats cost nearly $400 (and that's why I didn't go...wtf? My parents ended up getting cheaper tix for the Vancouver show, but the seats were kinda sucky). My seats are great. And the wonderful thing about floor seats is that its like first-come-first-serve. You get there early and you might be able to get up to the front. Then again it might be sitting down but still. The fact remains that I am going to see Roger Waters. Perform Dark Side Of The Moon as well as his solo stuff. In my city. At the Pengrowth Fucking Saddledome.

This is the closest thing to seeing Pink Floyd as I can get. Can I get a BOOYAH, plzkthnx?

that's very exciting for you! I will admit I had no idea who he was, and I'm not the hugest fan ever of Pink Floyd, but it's awesome that you got floor seats in a stadium. That's incredible.

Hahahaha I told my mom about the presale and she said "Oh they're probably sold out by now" and I said "No, I'd be surprised if people here even knew who he was."

Well it's more like a hockey arena, and I don't think that it's big as far as those go (we can't have concerts in our football stadium anymore because people complained about the noise the last time, which was in like 1975 or something). But the fact remains that I got floor seats...I mean I've had floor seats once before but that was like for this cover band thing. Which was admittedly really good, but still. I mean the guy's like 63, he was the main songwriter for the majority of Pink Floyd's albums (and the best ones, IMO). So yeah this is a big deal.

Bleh, huge comment, lolz. Thanks love, though, for the comment.
