So let’s get one thing clear – I am not a Bon Jovi fan…
If someone offers you one of these…
Its VERY difficult to say no.
Not only that but the tickets were Gold VIP Inner Circle too..
My mate Steve mentioned that he might go the other night.. he said he had these tickets and he wasnt fussed either way – but his mate Mike was going with his bird and he was gonna jump in their car with them.. I said I’d go too if there was a spare ticket.. Turns out there was a spare ticket but Mike had already agreed to take more people in his car.. so me and Steve said dont worry about it..
Fast forward to 3pm this afternoon and I’m walking back into Twickenham and I get a phone call from Steve..
“Oi Whatley – you fancy Bon Jovi?”
“I thought Mike had gone already.. ?”
“He has. He left at 11am this morning.. nutcase.. but yeah – figured these tickets are worth at least a ton so we should use ’em really.. we got backstage passes too.. So I’m thinkin’, fuck it, lets just jump in the car and go eh?”
“Mate – I’M ALL OVER IT!”
So off we went.. made good time too.. God knows why Mike left so early. We got there and we caught the first couple of Nickelback songs (they were supporting) then we hung out in the VIP tent for a bit and then went and joined the party in the ‘inner circle’ …
It was AWESOME!
So yeah – random as hell but a great way to spend a Sunday evening!
I’m shattered now mind.. been a long day.
So I’m gonna go to bed.. and sleep.
