it’s here! it’s really here!!!


And this almost didn’t happen. Madonna first announced that she’s taking her successful Sticky & Sweet Tour to Oslo, Norway on the 30th of July. Tickets got sold out in 34 minutes and I wasn’t able to get tickets as I got through the online booking queue 40 minutes past 9am, when the ticket company started selling.

More than a week later, while Knut and I were watching some late night TV, it was mentioned that Madonna was to have an extra concert in Oslo. The following day, I called the ticket company and inquired about it but they said they haven’t got tickets to sell for this extra concert. It wasn’t until the second day that it got published on Norwegian newspapers of the extra concert on the 29th of July, one day earlier than the first announced concert. HOLY!

This time I knew I had to be smart and speedy. I registered at Livenation, the concert organizer for the Sticky & Sweet Tour. The following day, February 20, pre-sale tickets were available from the site and after some error messages as I was directed to the ticket company site, I finally got through the page where I could select the seats. 2 Golden Circle tickets please! Available! Sweet sweet sweet! But oh, I realized I had to buy for another friend so I clicked back to choose 3 seats. Only to find out from the drop-down tab that only 2 is allowed. Click. Seats no longer available! Shit shit shit! I refreshed. And refreshed. And it what felt like the longest 5 seconds of my life, I pulled through and 2 Golden Circle tickets miraculously appeared again for me to take. YES!!! Sadly, Golden Circle tickets were sold out by the time I was ordering for my friend. 

After days of intense waiting, wondering if the card payment got through and that our tickets weren’t returned to the stable for selling again, our tickets arrived in the mail today! It’s here! It’s really here!!! And I couldn’t contain my joy and excitement! It was a hard (as candy) start, but Knut and I are in for one sticky summer of our lives.

And it’s so sweet I could taste it.

    That’s lovely! I can see that the ticket price is reasonable in comparison to some other concerts where most of their tickets cost an arm and a leg!
