I’m feeling like a happy badger ’cause I snatched Block A tickets!
Tom Waits Live at the Ratcellar, Phoenix Park
America’s legendary songwriter and performer Tom Waits brings his Glitter and Doom tour to Europe this summer, with three concerts in Dublin’s Ratcellar in Pheonix Park on Wednesday 30, Thursday 31 July and Friday 1 August.
These exclusive Dublin dates, which end the Glitter and Doom tour, will be the first time the Grammy-winning artist has played in the city since the early Eighties.
Tickets will be fully seated and go on sale Tuesday 27 May at 09.00. Tickets are strictly limited to two(2) per person.
That’s it, I’m going back to bed. Had a dream about fighting gorillas with my bare hands in order to save some damsels in distress. I’m gonna have to see how that turns out.
After having reserved the best possible tickets I logged in again to Ticketmaster to see whether I could snatch two tickets from the concert the day after (1 Aug). After five minutes in line I was turned down. Tickets for other shows are still available and I urge you to grab the opportunity. I may also go to the Prague concert, but I’m as of yet undecided. Going back to bed.
Also, if you don’t know Waits yet, think of it as a mind-opening experience. He is like a guardian angel of the best America has to offer. Despite "his gambling debts, his animal magnetism, coupled with his disregard for the feelings of others His elaborate gun collection, his mad shopping sprees, the face lifts, the ski trips, the drug busts and the hundreds of rooms in his home. The tax shelters, the public urination" he seems more like a man who is "gentle, intelligent, open, bright, helpful, humorous, brave, audacious, loquacious, clean, and reverent. A Boy Scout, really (and a giant of a man)". You can read the rest of his latest interview with himself over at the Anti label’s blog: True Confessions
