Let me give you a bit of background first.
My husband is a crazy music lover. He is really into a lot of classic rock, and he has seen a LOT of people in concert over the course of his lifetime. One of his very first concerts around the age of 5 was Michael Jackson. He's seen Aerosmith, U2, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Kanye West, and a crazy long list of others that I can't fathom to remember right now. He is a concert freak.
Which is why I really wanted to get Jason Eric Clapton tickets in Nashville. By the time I found out they were on sale, there were only terrible seats available. So I told him about the concert, and that I wanted to surprise him with tickets, but the only ones available were in the top tier, last few rows. Jason's statement to me was, "Eric Clapton is one of the last on my list that I've never seen. I'd sit in the worst, last seat in the house just to say I've been to a Clapton concert."
So the pattern was set. I couldn't possibly get Jason crappy seats for something like this. So I went on a hunt! And let me tell you, I found some pretty awesome seats.
Jason and I have seats in the second row of Floor Section 3!!! I bought them about a month ago, and had a goal of waiting until Valentine's Day to surprise him. If you know me at all, you know that is pretty much impossible. I finally couldn't stand it any longer last night, and framed a copy of the seating chart for him to see where we were going to be.
Clapton will be performing with Roger Daltrey. At the time of the purchase, I had NO idea who this guy was. Jason and I were in the car a few weeks ago talking about the Super Bowl, and he told me "Man, I'd take the worst seats in the house to be at the Super Bowl this year." I asked why and he said, "Because Roger Daltrey is playing and he is a legend!" Of course, I had to ask who he was, and he is apparently the lead singer of The Who. Go figure. So then I was even MORE excited to give Jason his big surprise. Want to see his reaction??
