Did you get your Kate Bush ticket? [Rex]
You might have noticed but there was a bit of a stampede this morning as Kate Bush tickets sold out for all of her 22 dates of her forthcoming series of live shows in 15 minutes. Did you get yours? We did (just). And these are the 6 stages we went through...
Stage 1: HOPE
It's 9.30 – the lines are open? Ticketmaster? Event In? Decisions, decisions..
Stage 2: CONFUSION
Oh God it is better to go on a Tuesday or a Saturday? Or maybe Sunday.
Stage 3: PANIC
They're available! For two more minutes! Oh no, I can't read the encrypted codeI Cr** I've typed in CLVTOPPS and it's CLVTOPSS!!
Stage 4: TOTAL MELTDOWN
I've lost my bloody tickets! Aaaargh!
Stage 5: JUSTIFY
Nothing, nothing. Hold on there's one here for £495 – but it includes a glass of Asti and some salmon spread! It's a bargain! Wow, wow, unbelievable, £400 though. It's not that much is it? In the grand scheme of things. Not Really. Repeat. And repeat again when you get your bank statement.
Stage 6: HOPE AGAIN
She'd better bloody sing 'Wuthering Heights' or I want a refund.
