Concert joy

Post by MayorOfLongview » Fri May 06, 2005 5:46 pm

Got this email yesterday...

Just thought you’d like to know, I’ve surprised my wife and booked tickets for the gig, and the LOTR event. We’re travelling from Wakefield, England, that’s how much this means to us. The hotel’s booked, flights are booked, I’ve ordered the gig tickets online and a friend in Cincinnati is sorting out the symphony tickets. Just thought you’d like to know we English will go to any lengths to see you. Roll on your UK tour ;) Kind regards.

Cool!

Yes, it is I. We were considering vacations, and a cruise was looking favourite, but then all this happened and, well, it's a no-brainer really. My excitement-o-meter is hovering in the red even now. Hope to see some of you over there. For ease of recognition, I shall be wearing a pink carnation and goat leggings. No change there, then. Mrs buckdharma will be just wearing the carnation (it's an allergy thing).

Check THIS out! "News for May 7" is where it's at, somewhat at top of page.

Not the Buck Dharma of Genesis forum infamy? Curse you! You've beaten me for the furthest distance travelled :lol:

Still, at least we can confuse people with our strange accents...

Not strange, awesome!! I think pretty much every American alive loves an Irish accent... (or at least a very sound majority). ;) Welcome to the forum, buckdharma!! I guess I'll be seeing you in November! :cheers: :guitar:

So how far is the drive from upstate New York to Ten? By the time November rolls around, the Ms. and I will be living in Hamilton New York, home of Colgate University, where she just got a prof job. I think I need to make the trek for this show as well!

I'm seriously hoping to make the gig, whether by car or plane!

There must be another buckdharma, as I have kept my light very much under a bushel (I have no idea what that means - I normally avoid metaphors like the plague) and have not ventured onto the genesis forum. I dabble on the flower kings one every now and then, and on marillion.com from time to time. My Yorkshire accent should be pretty discernible - not as lilting or, heck, sexy as an irish accent though (this latter tidbit comes from Mrs dharma by the way). Been mistaken for an Australian in Cincinnati more times than I care to remember.
By the way, we're in Nasville from 2nd through 9th November. Aside from elvis (elvish?), anyone recommend any fun, slash interesting things? We will probably be hiring a car (sorry, automobile). Don't fear the english.

Two BOC fans? Who'da thunk it? :lol:

Welcome to the forum in any case! I'm looking for the same info re Nashville places to imbibe and, well, er that's all really... :P

So if anyone can recommend anywhere, please share.

As an aside, my accent is Belfast-based, which may not be the "Top O' the Mornin'" tpye of thing that you might expect. Think Daniel Day Lewis in "In The Name of the Father" or Richard Gere in "The Jackal"...

...on second thoughts, scrub Gere! :lol:

I was going to use eric bloom's stalk forrest nickname, Jesse Python, or even at a push allen lanier's La Verne (Prince Omega was deemed by mrs dharma to sound too much like a vitamin supplement). My porn name by the way is blackie franklin. Take your first pet's name followed by your mother's maiden name and you're there.
What about Tommy Lee Jones in Blown Away? Now there's an accent.

Does anyone know how much time we have to get tickets if we're just getting tickets for the GH/salem Hill show and not the whole package? How big is the arena and how many will be sold by themselves? We also plan on going to the symphony show that night also, but I know you have to go thru Nashville Symp.Orch. to get those. Any ideas?

I'm checking now to see how sales are going. There are 1,000 seats for the GH show. Everyone who buys a conference ticket can get in, so I'm not sure how they're working it.
