I'd asked him about getting tickets through work months ago, when the concert was first announced - our company did the electrical works on that project, so we get a certain number of seats from the client, plus passes to the Audi Club, which is the members bar there. Dad never said anything, so I gently reminded him a couple of weeks ago.
So today, I gets a phone call from Dad. Conversation goes something like this:
Dad: When were you looking for tickets for the O2 again?
Me: Well, the two shows are on this weekend, Saturday and Sunday..
Dad: Ok, right..... (sound of him scribbling notes) and who was it that's playing again?
The next sound that was heard was the THUMP of my head meeting the desk.
Dad: Leave it with me, I'll call you back in a while.
Me: OOOWWW.... okay then...
So he rang me back about 45 minutes later to say he had the tickets. Sadly, I was not in my office at the time, I was outside near the canteen. There was much bouncing, flailing, and a couple of passing apprentices thought I was having some kind of seizure.
Good times people!!
Checked the web, show starts at 8pm, goes until 10.40pm. No support act and no intermission. I am so excited right now that it is, in fact, ridiculous!
