Hello all you Metal heads!! First off, i have been a Metal Head since i was 8yrs old. Hell, i am 45 now so you do the math. I have always been a priest fan espcially the early years. Rob has the best voice in metal. I have personally seen them 6 times. Every show was great!!
Now to my plee. After some turbulent times and poor relationships i finally got my stuff together and met a wonderful woman. She also had a, ready to turn, 3 yr old son whom i also connected with. Most men would probably shy away from this. I stepped up. Although our relationship has it's moments we have always been able to connect with music. I bought him a cheap guitar and amp with the hopes he will sit and play with me one day. Trust me, i am no Glenn or K.K. but i enjoy playing.
As my son has started to explore his musical interests, he rummaged through my C/D rack and found my JP albums. He has played each one over and over many times. He knows just about all the stuff. Basically he has become quite a fan and continues to ask me about them in concert. I do what i can to tell him but it is nothing like being there.
I just recently found out that Priest is playing in Tampa,Fl. on 08/16/09. I went looking for tickets and found them to be way out of my pocket. For those who know how hard things are right now. It's either pay your bills or you are out. Looking at other ticket outlets (Brokers....what a joke) the cost was even higher. I have to make a decision of food for my family for 2 weeks or 1 night out of metal music and suffer until i can catch up. I am sure you know the smart decision.
The help i am asking for is if anyone knows how i can get 2 - 4 tickets at a reasonable price for this show. It happens to be my step-sons birthday that night and he has never been to a "live" concert. I thought this would be a great present and surprise for him but, unfortunately the concept got demolished when i went looking for tickets.
If anyone out their can help, forward my message to the band or give me a direction to follow i would be very
Rock on Metal Heads
