Darn, there are SO MANY good people on here...thanks to everyone for making me smile.
And, I feel I must apologize for getting a bit upset...it's really not like me at all!  :-[
I have been quite emotional since the offer was made...it's just amazes me...the goodness.

It's gonna cost a bit to get the boys to play Hawkmoon, but if you send me me 500,000 worth of bitcoin I might be able to swing it.  I'll even throw in an economy plus ticket and a tour programme for riffy if these terms and conditions are met.

Riffy - you are wonderful and that's why people have been offering you tickets.  Feel good  :)

Heck, if they play Hawkmoon, I'll WALK across that big ocean...save you the plane fare!
Thanks, il_capo...I do feel good...I feel just fine, in fact!

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  :-\

That's a story I needed to hear now. It reminded me also about trying more to perform random acts of kindness.
Thanks for sharing...

I hope changing ass to bottom saves me from a ban.

If I won the lottery last night (I haven't checked yet), I'll shout you all tickets! Including pdk.  ;D

If they ban you, I'll come bail you out...to repay you for making me laugh so hard.

Riffraff, cool story and thanks for sharing.

I sorta, ya know, cleaned the thread up a bit because it's a really cool thread, and I think we all want it to stay that way.

Last thing, I'm going to move it over to the General U2 section. Cool? Cool.
