Well, this is just weird and I feel terribly guilty about it. But it was just too weird.
I wanted to see how that Town Hall theater in Dusseldorf was spelled, so I went to the LIVE section of the Nick Cave web site but the Dusseldorf event was gone, and then I saw, by chance or whatever you call it, that another show had been added in NYC, at Lincoln Center, for Saturday 9/21, when I will already be there in town.
So I clicked on it and saw that tickets were going to go on sale in 3 minutes. So for some reason, I clicked on the “tickets” button anyway, and the tickets were already on sale. And there before me was a little link that said: Get the best seat available, and so, out of curiosity, I thought, well, what is the best seat available? And so I clicked that link, too.
And it was like the best fucking seat. And it was available. And it was just so weird. No feeding frenzy. No nothing. Just an amazing seat in the 4th row of the Orchestra, sort of to the side. And I thought, what the fuck is this? A moment before this, I didn’t even know the concert was even happening.
So I bought the ticket. I clicked the link and they basically said, Here you go! Here’s your ticket.
And it just didn’t seem real.
And now I feel terrible, because some person out there is going to want at least one ticket for either show, and I now have 2 good tickets for both shows.
And I don’t really even understand how that happened.
