Red Tour Tickets: My story
Thought I would share my ticket story.
I saw that Taylor was going on tour this year and immediately checked the Canadian dates. I knew if i was going I would have to travel, I'm from the east coast of Canada and the concert world seems to end at Montrèal.
I saw that Taylor was playing June 15 in Toronto. I checked with my schedule to see if I had any days off. I'm in Nursing school, which is synonymous with attending clinicals over the summer. My clinical ended June 14 and I decided that if I were to get tickets, it would be my reward for finishing 6 weeks of 12 hour shifts in hospitals 5 days a week.
I gathered my resources and found deals on airfare and hotels because I'm a poor university student. I can't afford a trip that is more expensive than $600, but I managed it. Now all there's left to do is wait.
I got my TS and RED code on November 12 and wrote them both down on a piece of paper so I'd have them at the ready to type in on November 13 at 11am ATL.
On the day I refreshed the page and put my codes in and got back "no tickets available". So frustrating! I tried for another 30 minutes with no luck and resigned myself to waiting until the general sale on Friday.
The next morning, I was sitting in my Statistics class, waiting for it to begin. and I randomly decide to try the American Express pre-sale on my phone because I remember my mother offering her Amex if I needed it for the sale. What do you know! Section 130A row 5!
I bolt out of class and call my mother for the credit card number. I'm halfway through entering the information in my phone when it boots me out! So I ran back into class and open my laptop and try for tickets on there. Section 118 row 16. I snatch them up. The entire thing takes about 20 minutes. Needless to say I learned nothing about statistics that morning.
I immediately text my best friend who is going with me...and my mother to say thanks.
I was so happy that I didn't have to compete during the general sale!
That's my ticket story, lots of disappointment and frustration, but a happy ending. :)
