Alrighty, I have an awesome seat at what will be (amazingly enough) my very first ever U2 concert. It's Section 108 Row 2 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, for Mon. Sept. 12th. I have been looking forward to this concert forever and was beyond excited when I finally got such a great seat, after doing the whole advance-ticket thing, getting on the website at 10 am exactly, etc. (I knew I wouldn't be able to convince anyone I knew here to shell out $180, unfortunately... But I didn't want to do GA, and really just wanted a seat in the stands, relatively 'close'.)
And now I have a bit of a problem. I have a trial (I'm a law student) the very next morning. Plus there's a movie playing at the Toronto International Film Festival the night of the concert, with an actor attending I've always wanted to see in person (actually I don't think the movie will be particularly great or anything, but I used to have a slight obsession with the actor when I was younger...not so much now, but hey, he's still cute). I wouldn't be able to go, obviously, if I went to U2 on Monday. The movie, well, that's one thing, but doing a trial? *sigh*
I know, I know, I could always trade. I have right now an offer for a ticket on the Friday night - same section, but 8 rows back. It doesn't seem bad - same price level and all. And Friday would be MUCH better for me in general, it being a weekend and all. I'm just wondering if I'll really be missing out. As I said, I've never been to a U2 concert (or any concert on such a large scale - I've really only been to primarily classical concerts before), so I'm wondering what to expect... And I kinda wanted to be in on the first concert U2 was going to do on their 3rd leg. But I know it probably won't matter that much, right? So long as I'm there at one of them! And will it really matter if I'm in the 2nd row or the 10th row?
So, I'm looking for advice. Should I go for it? Or should I go on Monday anyway? Or is there anyone out there in LJ land who has a comparable ticket who could trade with me?
