Yep.

PJ Harvey played here recently. I bought tickets months in advance.

The other day, I received an e-mail from Ticketmaster, "Rate This Show!"

You guessed it. I never went. Forgot all about the show.

A hundred bucks, right down the toilet.

First time this has ever happened to me.

I was going to join a new range last month. I went to the first monthly meeting, and then the safety session the next week. I was supposed to go back to the next monthly meeting to pick up my key, etc. I was really looking forward to it.

Completely forgot about the meeting. I think it dawned on me a few days later.

I did that once myself. I think it was for a Megadeth concert.

I'd do stuff like that too if it wasn't for my smartphone and Google Calendar.

I put entries and reminders there for everything... alerts me on the phone AND sends me emails.

Been there done that...kind of.

I used to work 3rd shift and a lot of the shows were in the evening and I would wake up late and basically miss the whole show if I was really tired.

Several tickets went to waste.

Actually I'm a little upset about your fading memory issues. PJ Harvey hasn't played in TX since '01.

Sell the tickets on eBay... don't advertise the date but don't lie about it either...
Link Posted: 5/1/2011 12:06:55 PM EDT
Priceless! Sorry man, I'm an old guy too. ;)

I did the same thing last year when Suicidal Tendencies came through town. They were doing en entire line up of their classic stuff and that's how they billed the show. I'd been taking my son to a lot of shows the last few years...Iron Maiden, Testament/Megadeth/Slayer...the good old bands that have been doing shows.

Anyhow, bought tix the day they went on sale, of course, months before the date.

My son and I both remembered that we had the ST show to go to...that night...while we were visiting Grandma and taking her to dinner.



Still have the unused tix as a reminder to never, EVER, let it happen again.

Well bless your heart . . . why worry about senility when immaturity is clearly the bigger issue?

Put 'em on Craigslist. Some idiot will still buy 'em from you.

That sounds like something I would probably do.

I did that with Yngwie Malmsteen tickets. I didn't forget, I just mixed up which date was on the tickets. Bought them on Friday, thought the show was on Sunday - it was on Saturday Didn't realize my mistake until I got to the venue on Sunday and the wrong band was on the marquis.
