I Got Tickets!

Ticket purchasing has come a long way since I was young.  When I was young, you found out the date the concert tickets you wanted went on sale, and stood in line, rain or shine, until the Ticketron office opened and you could get yours.

Yesterday I waited in line for concert tickets right here at my computer.  A half-hour before the box office opened, I was admitted to a virtual "waiting room," where I stood in a virtual line to buy my tickets.  When the box office opened at 10 a.m. sharp, I reached the front of the line quickly, hit a few buttons on my keyboard and got some awesome seats.

This is a little taste of what I'll be seeing on October 8.  I can't wait!

Even cooler is that we will be seeing it at the beautiful, brand new Vina Robles ampitheatre -- imagine, a winery and entertainment venue all in the same place!  Should make for some heavenly evenings.

Vina Robles Ampitheatre - a work in progress


  1. I'm not usually one for concerts...but maybe that's because there's no wine! I could get down with that!

  2. Me, too! Just imagine a summer evening, a nice bottle of wine, dinner, and a concert, all outdoors as the sun sets. I think building the ampitheatre at the winery was a brilliant idea and will be very successful.
