Were you wondering why I asked if you were going to the show at the Gibson Amphitheatre? Well, wonder no more!
Maybe you already guessed (if so, pat yourself on the back), but I’ve got a little treat for some of the people who will be seeing the final US show in Los Angeles.
I’ve got some tickets to give away to see David’s performance on the Jay Leno show. All you need to do is turn up and look keen.
What’s more, I’ll give you up to four tickets so that you can take three of your friends along with you.
If you can get to the NBC studios at 3,000 West Alameda Avenue, Burbank, CA 91523 for 4PM on Thursday 20 April, I want to hear from you.
I need your full name and postal address, as well as the full names and addresses of up to three guests. You all need to be over 16 and will each need to take photographic ID with you in order to claim your tickets.
Here’s the catch.
If you haven’t already replied to yesterday’s question, you’re too late. Sorry, but I don’t care for your excuses. No more entries will be posted, let alone considered, and that’s that. I have my list of names to choose from.
If you did reply yesterday and it was your first ever post, then I’m afraid you won’t be hearing from me. This is for regular contributors only, as was made very clear from the start. Sorry.
If you haven’t posted many times before, then I’m sorry, but you won’t be hearing from me. I have had far more replies than I have tickets, so have had to prioritise.
Please note that David is not going to be chatting with Jay Leno. He will play just two songs in the (hopefully) glorious sunshine before a select audience, so you will be concert-only guests (you won’t be part of the studio audience). But you will get to be on TV – a show that’s shown worldwide, don’t forget – and, if you’re going to be hanging around waiting for that night’s gig at the Gibson Amphitheatre anyway, what have you got to lose?
So, let me know if you’re interested in bagging up to four free tickets to see David up-close and personal, along with all the necessary details, and you might just get a congratulatory e-mail from me on Tuesday.
If you don’t get an e-mail from me on Tuesday, please don’t write to ask why not. My reasons are clearly explained here. You can’t all win, unfortunately. I wish you could.
The recording will be just a short distance from the Gibson Amphitheatre, so should not affect your arrangements too much.
Tickets are non-refundable and it goes without saying that I want everyone who has a ticket to attend. There will be a crowd of just 125 people, so please only express your interest in these tickets if you are sure that you can attend, otherwise other fans will miss out.
If you cannot attend, but your friends can, then I’m afraid you are not eligible. You need to attend to get your friends in. You are the representative of David’s blog – and this seems the perfect way to meet others from the blog.
I’m not posing any questions. It’s not a competition. It’s a pure give-away to blog regulars. Just let me know all your details and promise that you, and up to three of your friends, will give David the warm reception he deserves.
“Full details” means just that. Please be sure to include your full name and your full address, with the full names and full addresses of up to three friends. Sorry to be strict, but time is of the essence and if you give me incomplete details, you will no longer be considered.
Ideally, I would like one post from you and one post only – and that one post will include all the details.
Nobody can cash in on this offer. You need to be on the list to get in, plain and simple. That’s why the next bit is very important, so please read carefully.
Photographic ID will be checked at the door and must match what I already know about you and your friends, so these tickets cannot be used by anyone other than the people you choose and tell me about. Choose wisely!
What you tell me is final. It will be carved in stone. If you name two people, you cannot decide tomorrow that you’d actually like to take three friends with you. I need all the details quickly and accurately. There’s no time for messing around, so please choose your guests carefully and be sure that they can attend before contacting me. If you can’t do this, the next person on the list who can will take your place.
It’s a holiday, so please don’t make even more unnecessary work for me.
Don’t worry, all names and addresses will be visible only to me and to Jay Leno’s team for cross-referencing purposes, and will not be made public in any way.
If I do not have your full details by Tuesday lunchtime (LA time), you will not be allowed to the recording. No excuses, no sob stories, I just don’t care.
So, be quick and good luck. Once my allocation has gone, that’s it.
