I was due to see Rush at Wembley last night but couldn't go because I developed an infection in my leg that prevented me from walking or sitting properly. As you can imagine I was less than chuffed at having to stay at my brother's home while my best mate, my brother & my nephew went to see them.
They couldn't get anyone else to go to use my ticket and, rather than sell a £35 ticket to a tout for £10 (who would then sell it for £100), they gave my ticket away - which is fair enough, I have done that before. They bought me back a t-shirt which didn't help my mood in anyway - especially as the infection broke an hour after they got home. I missed the gig of the year by 4 hours - I was in the mood to kill.
I was packing my stuff up, ready to drive home, when my best mate called - he managed to get tickets for us to see them tonight!!!!!
Geoff doesn't come here at all but I just wanted to say that although I don't have a wide circle of friends, the ones I have got are the best.
Bob, I think this goes to show how deservant you are of a great friend like Geoff. You are a pretty ok guy and pretty ok people usually attract the same.
Have a wonderful time tonight!!!
Will you bring me back a Tshirt????
Ah, his name was Geoff was it? He must think a lot of you Bob, as I made a tidy sum on those tickets.
They're genuine by the way. But if you get stopped on the door, they were bought in good faith and I don't give refunds.
Enjoy the show! Good to see Ian Rush still getting work, despite that nose of his.
Sir GH - you were not wrong, what a show!!!!! From the opening video sequences it was pure entertainment all the way - fan-fucking-tastic.
Lisser - 'pretty ok guy' is not high enough praise to earn a t shirt. Acceptable wording includes: handsome, adorable, wonderful, exceptional. I'll have to hang on the the 3 t shirts I got ;-)
I would highly reccomend this gig to anyone who has a chance to see it, even if I have a biased view. It's a hell of a show.
