The wonderful people on this forum...
« on: May 13, 2017, 08:13:53 AM »
Maybe others have a similar story to share...

I actually put this on my appreciation thread the other day, but someone pointed out that it might be "headline news"...so here it is again.

There is such good in the world. Yeah, I know, there's a lot of bad, too.

I'd like to share this...without mentioning names, because I'm not sure the person involved would want their name put out here...

I, for many reasons, am not able to attend TJT2017. Yesterday, someone on this forum offered me a FREE ticket to one of the shows. Ah, crap, now my eyes are leaking again! For a lot of the same reasons that I decided to skip this tour, I cannot accept their wonderful offer. But, what a wonderful thing, for a complete stranger to reach out like that.

I suggest that we all strive to be so thoughtful, so kind. NO, I don't mean giving all your tour tickets away! Just be kind.

Oh, jeez, now I sound like Bono  :-\

  I will be at Twickers on the 8th July - and agree last night looked amazing visually - not as sold on the new song as others but hey maybe the album version will rock ?

How nice of someone to do that I would be over the moon if someone offered me a free ticket as I too will not be able to go to the concert in Toronto because I was unable to get a ticket. There are nice people on this forum.

Likewise, will be at both London shows. Wonder how much coverage the London shows will get compared to last night. I do intend to eavesdrop on soundchecks and do a mixlr on show night

Seriously, you're picking a fight on THIS thread. Riffraff was only showing her appreciation to someone on this forum. No details or explaination needed. Let it go and let her show her thanks.

At first this thread made me happy, then it made me sad.

It feels like the point- even if it was well intentioned- was lost. Maybe just make up and no hard feelings.

I can make up...I can forgive and forget any misunderstanding! Only my Irish half got a little steamed...the other half is fine and dandy!
