Tonight.....Madison Square Garden.....18,000 fans & Depeche Mode. OH YEAHHHHH!!
Depeche Mode has been my favorites band since they first hit the music scene, back in the early 80's. They have toured the states countless times, but every single time, the concert that I wanted to see was either sold out...or something happened in my personal life to prohibit me from going. Well, not this time. When the release of their new Album " Sounds Of The Universe " was announced, I knew not long after there would be a tour to promote it. Thanks to depechemode.com & depeche mode on MySpace, I was able to follow ever move, every announcement. I got hold of the dates when they would be here, in New York about 7 months prior to the actuall show and ran to the phone, because THIS time I had a guarrenteed in for getting tickets. My best friend Elaine, works for a company who is directly affiliated with Madison Square Garden. I told her, PLEASE, as soon as you hear about any possibity of these tickets being available, LET ME KNOW! Well, she did not dissapoint! The employees were offered a small selection of tickets, and so we jumped on them! No matter what the cost, no matter what they are I have to go!! Well, these tickets were expensive, but I assure you I ain't complaining....and on top of that, they are in a fantastic section!!! Just above the floor. NO WORDS can say how utterly excited I am!!! GAHHH!!! So today, I'm headed to the store to buy some glow sticks to flail around at the concert.....yeah yeah, so I'm a dork. I'm also looking for a hand-held fan, cause this humidity is a bitch & I know once I head into the city, the sweat is gonna be rolling off of me. EWWWW. So, check me back tomorrow and I'll give you the full scoop on the concert. YAY! I CAN'T WAIT!
