I bought tickets for my sister and me to see Paul McCartney in New Orleans back in April. The show was supposed to be in June but got postponed till last night. Turned out that my tickets were fake. I bought cheap tickets and was pissed about getting scammed. While waiting in line to get beer, a woman comes up to us and asks if we have tickets up here in the nose bleeds and if we’re big fans. She proceeds to tell us that she works for Paul and gives us FRONT ROW TICKETS! It was unreal. Quite a turn of events. Still processing seeing a musical legend that close. Beatlemania.
