Well it's clear to me that I have not got "the right" to spend $250 each for two tickets to the Led Zeppelin gig at the O2 in London. The entire method for giving out tickets is a disaster and to me is dishonest.
First of all we had a site that could not handle the level of interest in the gig. I mean what moron could not figure out that there would be a lot of people wanting tickets? So it was a frustrating effort to even register for the "right" to get these tickets.
Secondly the ballot system is ripe for abuse. I am betting that all the buddies of those are organizing "won" their chance to get tickets.
Inevitably they will release the gig on DVD. I, for one, am not going to buy the bloody thing and I urge you not to buy it either.
Anyone who does get to go, do us a favor – count the brand new Led Zep shirts in the audience. I bet there will be loads of "right-on" types trying to fit in. It seems a fitting way to pay tribute to the boss of one of the major labels; after all they specialize in screwing music fans.
It's terribly sad to see the reputation of a great band sullied with this shoddy exercise.
