    In need of 2 tix to Sawyer Brown for tonight

    Ok long story short, My first date with my wife was going to the state fair to see Sawyer Brown . And we haven't been apart since. Well I thought I would make a long shot atempt to surprize her by getting to meet the band. I emailed them and never heard anything back till last night. Well I never got the tickets and my wife didn't want to go to a thursday night concert since we have to little kids now. Well now that we are on the list for the meet and greet I was going to get tickets. Well who would have thought that they would have pretty much sell out. I need some help here to get us to that concert tonight and I was wondering if any you cyclones can help me by having two tickets together for purchase.

    I hate using CF this way but I am a little desperate at this point.

    First, I can't believe Sawyer Brown is still around let alone sold out.

    I assume you've tried the usual routes: Stubhub, ebay, etc...?

    Re: In need of 2 tix to Sawyer Brown for tonight

    I know I hate to admit it but I really didn't even know who they were when my now wife asked me if I wanted to go. All I cared was that a hot chick asked me to go with her. And since then I have been a fan. Ebay is about the only one i haven't checked. thanks for the tip!

    The other thing I'd suggest is to buy the single seats that are available and hope someone doesn't show up or see if someone is scalping outside the show.

    That thought crossed my mind , but my wife would kill me if it didn't work out. It's kind of looking like I'm SOL.

    Also give Craigslist a quick try, sometimes that works. Best of luck to you


    If you don't think every day is a good day, try missing one.

    I'm guessing that if you left now and sat down at a blackjack table and played for the next 8 1/2 hours that Prairie Meadows might be able to find you some tickets...

    All kidding aside, have you tried to call out there directly? There typically seem to be some "promo" seats that open up the day of the show. The personal interaction can sometimes get you things when all else fails.

    This is correct, at least it used to be. Usually about 3-5 hours before the show ticketmaster would get a small number of re-released tickets to sell. I used to wait until the day of and get better tickets than most who ordered months before.

    No kidding I am going to give that a shot. I'm out of options at this point now, did you get them online or by calling them?
