YIKES: I’ve Spent Nearly $1000 on Concert Tickets This Year
Now that concerts have been announced, I can't stop buying tickets.
I think it was maybe May or late April when I realized it: concerts will actually happen this year. And not just some random, small, outdoor concerts, but actual massive stadium shows. And with that, was the beginning of the end. By the beginning of the end, I mean the end of my financial security. Because I can't stop buying concert tickets.
To date, I have bought concert tickets for I think five shows. While that may not seem like a lot of concerts, my bank account begs to differ. Not only are the tickets expensive, but there's a million fees associate with it. The service fee, delivery fee, taxes, and the list goes on and on. The fees sometimes add over $100 to the ticket order.
The most expensive show I bought tickets for is Lady Gaga at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. Do you know what happened two days after I bought these concert tickets? The concert got postponed to next year. Oh how mad I was, but hey, I still have concert tickets. I also have tickets to see Modest Mouse at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York. Plus, a few other shows I'm really excited about.
While I know I should stop buying concert tickets, I simply won't stop. There are too many amazing artists touring right now and I want to see them ALL. The next show I'll probably get tickets for is The Neighbourhood, wish me luck.
