It is Monday morning. Really early, I mean 8 am early, and there will be a fan presale for the hottest Clay concert this summer [at the Biltmore Estate, hence the castle picture] at 9:30 am. There are 49 pages of ticket stress for this particular concert on the fan club’s message board. 10,000 fans vying for 2500 seats.
I must say I have succumbed. I have to get 4 seats, as 2 friends in NC want to go to their first Clay concert, and this one is outside overlooking the NC mountains, and sunset, oh, well, who would not want to go to this one?
So I sit here, at 8 am, when I know damn straight that the sale does not start until 9:30 and what do I do?
Refresh. Refresh. Refresh….
I am a maniac.
Update: after being held in the “virtual waiting room” for half an hour, then getting through to select tickets, and getting a message that the site is busy, keep trying, and having kept trying 30 more minutes, I got 4 tickets in row ZD. ZD!!! There is no seating chart, so my best guess is this is row 30. I took them anyway. Had to.
