my lucky day?

i rarely get THIS lucky.

anyway i have a pretty funny story...

last year i bought 6 oasis tickets for june the following year. i'm an oasis fan and stuff, but i only bought them to profit cause im a cunt like that and i needed some ez cash and with it being:

A) a hometown manchester gig
B) the first gig of the tour
C) support from kasabian (lesta represent) and the enemy, 2 pretty big bands in their own right

that it would be guaranteed to sell out

anyway needless to say it did, pretty fast. the time comes and up till last week im starting to think fuck cause it had dawned on me i'd bought tickets for the thursday and everyone obviously didn't care all that much about the opening night and wanted the saturday gig instead. so i was struggling to get these fuckers sold.

infact, i had to get a female friend to mission up an entourage of friends who all agreed to buy the 6 tickets i'd purchased for face value (50 each).

anyway its 4 days before the gig and the tickets arrive. I open the envelope and theres 12 fucking tickets. "fuckin hell these mateys have sold me 12" i think to myself. but no, on double checking i was invoiced for 6 tickets so essentially i'd got an additional 6 FREE!

happy fucking days!

but then the task of selling these bad boys hit me. "bugger". BUT in the end albeit at a push, i did manage to get them all sold again for face value apart from my own which was well, now free. (Y)

so, i went to the gig with a bunch of people and despite the 30 mins time wasted due to "generator probs" it was pretty good despite shelling out 3.50 for a beer (expected) of which several were purchased.

however it doesn't stop there. early in their set liam gallagher then announces we can all get our money back because of the generator probs that pushed the gig over schedule, so i'm laughing and just took it as a tongue in cheek comment.

but i get home and apparently this shit is real, it even says on their website. so i'm now getting refunded for 12 tickets of which i only paid for 6 in the first place.

in short, i just got paid 600 to see oasis.


thankyou lord for britpop.
