I have been dealing with some emotional trauma for over five months now. I’m finally ready to open up about it.
When New Kids announced their tour, I had a big decision to make. There were two choices:
1. Go on my own to the Edmonton and Calgary shows, and buy the 5 Star VIP packages which are not cheap.
2. Take the kids with me so I could share the experience with them, because New Kids are something they’ve grown up with. And of course we’d have to get general admission tickets, because no way can I afford that many 5 Star VIPs.
As the ultimate sacrifice, I chose option #2. Since then I’ve been so torn up about it. I want the kids with me, but also…VIP! I thumbed my nose at VIP!
Here’s what VIP includes.
A ticket in the first 10 rows.
Pre-show party. (!!!)
Meet and greet – that means BACKSTAGE, thanks.
Also a bunch of other stuff, but those are the ones that really matter to me.
Even though I bought my tickets for both shows the very second they went on sale, I didn’t even get floor seats. They were selling out so fast! Did you know they sold out two shows at the Air Canada Centre in like 5 seconds? True story.
So. In my secret New Kids club I can’t tell you about, the girls have been talking about their 5 Star experiences, and it’s killing me. Last night I actually cried about it. I cried. TEARS! I know...I even surprised myself.
And tonight I decided to be awesome to myself and to be totally financially irresponsible. I went ahead and bought 5 Star VIPs for all three of us for the Edmonton show. I did! We’re going to hang out backstage with Donnie! YOU MUST BE SO HAPPY FOR ME!!!
I put my general admission tickets up for sale on Ticketmaster. Hopefully I can find someone to buy those and at least get that $300 back.
I feel like my head is going to explode. This was a big night.
