This is really weird. The tour page on jasonmraz.com as well as the official Ironside Ampitheatersite say that tickets for Jason’s August 28th show go on sale Saturday, June 6th.
Ticketmaster’s website says that the Ticketmaster pre-sale starts Friday, June 5th. I had that date on my calendar.
Today, I saw on Facebook that the pre-sale for this show started yesterday, June 3rd. (Go to http://jasonmraztickets.musictoday.com for details.) And now I see that a news item was posted on jasonmraz.com yesterday saying the pre-sale started on the 3rd.
Now, I’m on the mailing lists, I get all the emails with news and tour dates and all that, but if I hadn’t noticed the Facebook announcement, I would have waited until tomorrow to get tickets. I’m feeling a little stressed at how many aspects of my life are dependent on visiting multiple websites a day, checking statuses, texting and tweeting, and being in constant contact with technology.
But at least I didn’t miss out this time.
It doesn’t look like too many people have rushed to get tickets yet. I got pretty good seats and it looks like there’s a lot left. I’m excited for a new summer tour, maybe some new songs, new banter, new hats.
How can you sleep at a time like this?
