Don’t Stand So Close to Me

I’m still undecided as to whether I’ll even attempt to buy tickets for The Police concert. Unless you’ve been hibernating in a cave – which is not a bad idea for mid-February – you’ll have heard that The Police have reunited and are coming to the Bell Center on July 25th. The last time I tried buying tickets for a hot concert – Madonna’s Confessions tour – I was so disappointed. My friends and I practically had a military operation in place and we still couldn’t score tickets. Neither by wristband at the Bell Center, at other Admissions outlets, on hi-speed internet, or by phone. I refused to buy from scalpers and ended up missing one of the most talked about concerts of the year. Being a huge Madonna fan, that was a total downer.

Now as for The Police, I’m feeling rather ambivalent about the whole thing. I wouldn’t mind going but I wouldn’t be devastated either if I didn’t. Tickets go on sale tomorrow for The Police with a maximum of 4 tickets per person. Again, they’ll be giving out wristbands at the Bell Center today so that you can be part of the random draw to determine where the lineup starts if you are buying tickets at the Bell Center itself. I’m not doing that. I hate waiting in line to begin with. Voluntarily freezing my ass off in a crowd of people for tickets that I might or might not get for a group that I’m not completely crazy about seems like too much effort. The Police had some good hits but I don’t know if I want to go to the concert simply because of the hype. Is anybody else planning to buy tickets and if so, what’s your action plan?
