Music Artists, Please Work With Us!


This morning, Justin Timberlake announced his solo tour dates for this fall’s The 20/20 Experience World Tour. If you haven’t seen them yet, click here and see if he’s coming to your hood.

Let’s start with the positive: JT IS COMING TO OHIO! TWICE! No, seriously, this is a huge deal. Usually artists as big as him don’t show a lot of love to the Midwest when they do major tours. They think a stop in Chicago and Detroit covers everything. Well, it doesn’t, people!

Midwesterners, in my neck of the woods, have plenty of options for this tour. Columbus and Cleveland Ohio, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Louisville are all within a 3 hour drive. Oddly enough, there aren’t the usual Detroit and Chicago stops. I approve, Justin. I approve!

What I don’t approve of is the timing of all of this. JT announced his tour dates today. He doesn’t start until October 31st, but he’s putting those suckas on sale next week!

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Pump your breaks, Timberlake! We’re not all multimillionaires! Some of us need more than 7 days to gather the necessary funds to pay for your super expensive concert tickets! I want you to take my money, but please, give me more than a minute to gather it! We’re in a recession, dammit!

I’m working it out, thanks to a friend, but this is a rant that I let loose on Twitter on a regular basis. I really, really, really need to start a “Concert Fund” and regularly pour money into it, so I’m ready when these artist pull this crap. Because, really, they do it all the time! Why haven’t I adapted yet? Well, I will! Some people have rainy day funds, or general savings accounts. Suz is going to have a a “Concert Fund” and that’s perfectly normal, you guys!

Where’s a Ticket Oak when you really need one?

The Chicago Bulls Are Making Their Playoff Push!

Yes, they’ve already locked up a spot in the NBA Playoffs, but the way they’re playing now (and the way the rest of the teams in the Eastern Conference isn’t playing) is steadily increasing the likelihood that they will have home court advantage until the Finals, should they make it there.

Right now, they are playing the best ball in the East, and it’s not even close! So, if you’d like to see the Chicago Bulls play, the rest of this season, Ticket America will hook you up! has tickets for the Chicago Bulls the United Center and lots of NBA tickets.

And as someone who saw the legendary Michael Jordan play, in Chicago, I know that United Center tickets can be hard to come by. Meaning, sometimes you need all the help you can get!

If the Bulls aren’t your team, Ticket America still has you covered if you’re looking for other NBA tickets.

Yea, We’re Jinxes!

So, each year — for the past 5-6 — the family and I head up to Cleveland whenever the Lakers come to town. We generally get the “hook up” because my uncle is on the Lakers coaching staff; not to mention a former player!

And, every year, the Lakers lose. It never fails. It does not matter who is the better team, even though it’s always been the Lakers. They never win in Cleveland. Period.

Fast forward to this year and Sunday’s game. The Cavs actually stepped up their game this season and are among the elite in the league. As a result, this ticket was way more in demand than your average Lakers/Cavs game. My uncle tried to secure tickets for us, but wasn’t successful. Naturally, we were bummed, but not because we were going to miss the game. We only see said uncle once a year, and it’s usually at this game. We get the VIP treatment and get to meet up with him after the game, before the team boards the buses.

So, we don’t make the game in Cleveland and the Lakers finally win. Coincidence? I think not! We’re jinxes!

Making Another Trip to the ‘Shoe

Spending another Saturday at the \'Shoe

Spending another Saturday at the 'Shoe

Ok, I seriously think I’m getting spoiled. Last week I went to my first Ohio State football game and had a blast. That was probably in part to the dope seats that I got, just 8 rows from the field.

I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to go this week. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I already got a taste of that closeness to the action and was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to get a seat that close again. I just thought I got really, really, really lucky last week.

Ohio State is using this year for some of their ticketing. I’m under the impression that they didn’t use it last year which led fans to camp out at the box office the night before games. If I had to do all that to get a seat, my ass would be watching the Buckeyes from my living room couch!

But because I’m always on the internet, it doesn’t take but a second for me to open up, and see what kind of seats are available. I’ve been doing that on and off for the past few days. I was in section 26AA (lined up with the 10 yd line) in Row 8 last week (Click here for my view from the stands), but up until today, I wasn’t able to pull up any AA deck seats. I told myself that if I found one in AA, that’d be the only way I’d be at the game tomorrow. I’ve always been a ticket snob and football events are no different than concerts in my eyes. I want to be as close as I can to the action!

Blue star is this week\'s seat, red was last game

Blue star is this week's seat, red was last game

Then, around 4:30 PM, it happened. I went to Ticketmaster and pulled up a seat in section 22AA! This is my view this week. These seats are just about at midfield, and only 4 rows from the field. I somehow managed to better my spot from last week! The football gods are loving me this year!

So from noon to 3:30ish, I will be hanging out, once more, with 105,000+ of my closest friends and cheering on the Buckeyes. Ah, life is good!

Now if only I could easily score tickets to the Browns/Colts game at the end of November…
