Well, I did it.
I waited patiently for Van Halen tickets to go on-sale at a concert venue closest to my home. This morning, I purchased two seats to the Indianapolis tour stop.
Eric and I will drive 100 miles each way for the show, and I hope it's worth it. The seats were exceptionally expensive. In fact, if you want to talk straight ticket prices, it's costing Eric and I more to see the reunited VH than it did for four days of Rocklahoma this past July. (Don't worry though, inflation hits everything and when I renewed my Rocklahoma seat license for next year, the price rose three-fold).
I *think* my Van Halen seats are good. We're almost on the floor without buying the (nearly) illegal Live Nation promotion.
I'm very excited. I've been talking about buying my Van Halen tickets all week. I'm sure my coworkers are sick of hearing about it all.
