Madonna Tickets

Well, after quite a few days of wondering whether Brit Boy and I would get our Madonna tickets on time, we finally got them today. (smile) I just realized that there is a Madonna theme happening here since I wrote about her in my last entry too. But that’s okay. I like her music. It’s good time music. Plus ever since we saw Prince last year, we figured that we would try to see as many music stars from our teen and young adult years as we could to kind of bring things full circle. Prince and Madonna were huge in the 80s, when we were teens and they are still going now, so it is great to get to see acts that we have enjoyed for years.

We bought our tickets weeks ago, but there was a holdup in the printing and basically we were running out of days before the concert. Then the doorbell rang this morning and I flew downstairs because I knew it was our tickets. It was funny though. I had left a bag of plastic bottles and one with cans at the front door that we were going to put out for recycling, and I had to move them out of the way to open the door. Well, when I moved them, they made a lot of racket. The mailman probably thought I was one of those people that loads their houses with trash and keeps it. When I opened the door, I thought that maybe he didn’t hear it, but he said, “Are you okay in there?” I laughed to myself.

So on Saturday, we are off to Cardiff to see Madonna. I have never gone to Wales, so it will be a fun experience.

I had a great time in Wales recently and with Madonna tickets you'll have blast! I saw her a few years ago in Atlanta and she never slowed down. I think it was two concert tours ago and she was amazing!

Hey there! Glad you were inspired by the recent post. Sounds like you're having the time of your life. Enjoy! :-)

Elizabeth,
I am so excited about going to see Madonna and as you said with going to Wales too it will be a blast. I have been listening to Madonna music a lot today to get "Into the Groove". lol.

Jacqueline,
I thought you wrote a great post and it truly made me think. Thanks for the inspiration. And yes, I am having a good time these days and I am doing my best to soak up every minute of it. :-)

Mountain Woman,
I am with you. I have always admired Madonna because she does what she wants and has stood the test of time and her music takes me back to particular times of my life. So this is a dream of many years coming to life. I will definitely share how it all goes.

Marlyms,
Well they won't allow cameras, but I will try to get some photos of the scene outside on our mobile phone. I will definitely tell all when we return. I can't wait!

Thanks to you all for stopping by!
Dori :-)

Have fun at Madonna! I've never seen her live, either; I bet it's a spectacle.

As for the recycling blocking the door, maybe the postman thought you are one of those paranoid people, who booby traps the front door in case of intruders? tee hee.

Oh you're very lucky! My friend was in Switzerland watching Madonna and she said it was really good. Enjoy!

Tink said...

I love Madonna's music. I'm sure you'll have a great time at the concert!

Dori said...

Susan,
Yes, I am so ready to see her LIVE and in person! Can't wait. I laughed out loud when I read what you said about me booby trapping in case of intruders. Darn, you found out my security secret. LOL.

Finally Woken,
This will be the first concert on this tour, so it will be great to see the opening night. I will let you know how it goes.

Tink,
I'm like you, I have always loved her music. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to wear.

Dori :)

Thanks for the hugs, I really appreciate that. You saw Prince last year? Love him. Madonna puts on a great show (although I have never seen her live in concert) and you should have a great time!

Mekhismom,
Glad to be there to support you. (smile)Yes, I did see Prince last year, twice. And he was GREAT both times. Love him too! Madonna is phenomenal and she was phenomenal to see in person.

Dori said...

Coolingstar9,
Madonna is a great performer and you are right, she brings joy to her fans everywhere. She was amazing to see in concert. You have a nice day too and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi Dori,
Just wonder if you could change the blog address to http://finally-woken.com since I have moved in to my own 'house'. Much appreciated.

PS: it's lovely here today, 25 degree, I can't believe it! How's it down there?

Dori said...

Finally Woken,
No problem. I will change your link and congrats on moving into your own "house". :-) The weather is pretty nice here today too. I guess it is our last bit of summer. It's a lovely evening here. Talk to you later.

Dori :-)
