The Replacements homecoming concert in September sold out in seconds. There had been 2 presales before the remainder of the tickets were put up for sale, and I missed out on both events because I was at work. When it went live Saturday morning, I submitted my order in less than 10 seconds, and then was put into a queue. Three minutes later, all the tickets had been claimed, and I walked away empty handed.
Sadly, the General Admission tickets with a face value of $50 are going for $200 on StubHub right now. Add in airline tickets, 2 nights in a hotel, and a rental car, and I am looking at a $2000 weekend. Anyway, I still have this weekend in Atlanta. Saturday night at the Shaky Knees festival, I may just shed a tear when I hear Paul sing.
Since I am in a 'Mats mood, here's I'm In Trouble.
