These are crazy days but they make me shine

In true Chris Knowles style (as anyone that knows me will tell you) I am going to do something a bit on the crazy side. Oasis are one of my all time (if not all-time) favourite bands and I have longed to see them play live for many years but my stupid friends have failed to invite when they've been (maybe I smell?). I knew they were touring again this summer but didn't find out till after the tickets went onsale by which time I expected they'd be sold out.

I recieved my weekly email from Ticketmaster tonight and for one I actually bothered to skim it, I noticed Oasis were mentioned so I clicked the link, thinking 'Why have they mentioned Oasis, surely its completely sold out by now?'. It turns out there are still a few tickets left to a couple of venues, the first being seated only in Glasgow, just a mere 255 miles (5 hour drive) from Sheffield so I didn't pay much attention to that, but low and behold further down the page there are standing tickets available to their gig in Southampton, which is marginly closer (200 miles – 4 hour drive).

Now tickets aren't cheap, face value of £32.50 and they are very far away but I was severly tempted to just buy one ticket, drive all the way to Southampton, see them play and drive all the way home, all in a day but then I discussed the matter with Rhian who said if she were me she'd buy 2 tickets, try and find someone else to go and if not then sell the 2nd ticket and go alone. So in the end I went from considering buying a ticket to actually buying 2 tickets. The good news is it looks like I already have someone to go with which makes life much sweeter.

I really can't afford to be buying tickets as I have no money until I get paid on Christmas eve but I really don't care, I'll manage, it's going to be totally worth it. I can't wait already and its over half a year away, I have a feeder concet to go to in the meantime to which I also cant wait to see, no doubt I'll be squeezing more gigs in all over.
