Going to Chicago!

As luck would have it, I managed to score a ticket to go see The Smashing Pumpkins in Chicago in August!  I’m pretty pumped.  My setup to acquire tickets was a little hilarious…I wish I had a picture.  I had my ipad with the Ticketmaster app open, I then had my computer with Ticketmaster running as well as another computer I borrowed from a colleague to handle getting tickets as well!  I also found out that Ticketmaster in the US has an automated phone line that I could try.  Vero also was helping me out on her end which was greatly appreciated.

After letting go of a few sections I wasn’t really interested in, I honed in on a single ticket, center floor, 19 rows from the stage.  Not too shabby I think.  I’m now going to the United Center in Chicago on August 13th for the show!

I’ve always told myself that if the Smashing Pumpkins ever reunited and they had a show only in Chicago, I would go and check them out in their hometown.  Well, 3 out of 4 original members isn’t bad at all and it turned out that the family trip to Gaspe would have been cut significantly if I had decided to go see the Pumpkins in Montreal on August 8th.  This way, I get the best of both worlds plus a fun trip to (hopefully) a fun city!  Even though I don’t watch baseball, perhaps I should try a hot dog out at Wrigley Field.
