Childhood Dream

I don't normally go to a lot of concerts, basically just RF and Gary. However, when I was younger my dream.... one thing I wanted more than anything... was to see Bon Jovi in concert. I am now 27 and have still not seen them. Occasionally I get an email from Ticketmaster informing me of upcoming concerts in the SLC and Vegas area. Today the email showed that Bon Jovi was going to be at the Hard Rock on April 24. Now, if any of you have been to the Joint at the Hard Rock or even the House of Blues (which is very similar) you know that it is a pretty small venue and makes for an awesome concert. I couldn't believe it! I got so excited that I might finally have a chance to do what I have always dreamed. So I go to the website to look at ticket prices. I about choked!! There were three ticket prices, the first was approximately $180, the second approximately $460 and the third was around $780. How am I ever supposed to achieve my childhood dream at a price like that?? I am so bummed.

Don't get me wrong, I have other dreams, much more meaningful dreams. But I remember having to write down 100 goals - things to do before you die- in the 5th grade and seeing Bon Jovi live was at the very top of the list. I guess it will never happen. What a pathetic dream but oh how depressed it makes me to know that I may never have a chance before they retire! ;)

Maybe another venue will come up later. That's insane! Those prices in this economy, who could afford to go?

You should keep checking it. Who knows, you might luck out! Maybe your local radio station will give out tickets- I've won several sets of tickets through our local radio station. On a final note, I sent you an invite to read our blog if you would like. :)

Bon Jovi? Really? Ok, well Im glad you are smart enough not to pay that insane amount to go see them. Im sure they will play in a larger venue where the tickets are not so much. Good luck!
