A while ago I posted all excited about Clay’s summer tour. I have to go I just have to there is no question.
Now the reality.
Dates are announced. No concerts in my state although more dates will be announced later but who knows when or where. Tickets are going on sale soon probably before all of the venues and dates are announced. Which means action without all of the facts. This causes me stress.
I can go to Asheville NC, at the Biltmore Estates, this is like a 7-hour ride. But. This place has only 2000 seats and there are season pass holders who get first dibs on tickets and I am not one of those people and then everyone it seems wants to go to this one and so there will likely be no seats left – period. Unless you buy a season pass [I have done this before to get good seats – I split it with a friend] but you have to show up there and get it activated before you can buy the concert tickets so that is 2 7-hour drives – I am not that crazy.
Then there is Cary NC – with only 300 reserved seats and 7000 lawn seats – I do not do lawn seats where I have to watch him on the jumbotron that is just not worth it to me. So. 300 seats what is the chance of getting one in his hometown????
I can drive 5 hours to Philly – tickets go on sale in 2 weeks. But this place also gives its members first dibs on seats and now everything is complicated again.
Okay I am complaining alot but what the hell – I am a fan club member I pay $35 a year to get presale tickets and I still have to scramble for tickets?
But. I have to go. I just do.
And once I am there? I will forget all about this.
