Planet Rock get a day or two advanced ticket sales over Joe
Public. Paul Rodgers at Blackpool Opera House, April 2011, so I
email 10 people who may be interested. 6 say yes, get me a
ticket, 3 say they can't make it and one says it's too far ahead,
I don't know what I'll be doing then. WHAT?????

I say, if you want to go, book the ticket and then if anything
else crops up later, you just say sorry, going to see Paul
Rodgers that day - he's dithering.

Is it just me or is he fekkin' stoopid???????

It's just you. If you really don't understand "it's too far ahead",
take it from me that he meant "no". That's obvious to me even
though I have no idea who Paul Rodgers is.

As I've just said in my reply to Tim Watts, his exact words were,
"Wow, I'd love to see Paul Rodgers but it's just
to far ahead to know what I'll be doing in April", which doesn't
sound like "no" to me.

It still does to me. And unless you decided to buy a ticket for him,
I'd say that in the end that's what it meant to you too.

It sounds very much like a "no" to me too. In other words, although
he is interested, he's not keen enough to make a commitment at this

So it means "no", but not in the sense of "no I don't fancy it" but
more like "if you need to get the tickets now, then don't get one for
me; but if, come April, I'm still at a loose end, and tickets are
still available, I may well join you".

Well, yes, that's how we've left it. I didn't get a ticket for him but he'll
come if tickets are still available and he can make it. The point I don't
understand about it all though is that we're very big fans of Paul Rodgers
and would normally crawl over broken glass to get a ticket. 6 of us (7
including myself) have bought tickets, 3 others would do but already know
they can't make it due to other committments and he just doesn't know.

I've never heard of this opera singer either. I certainly wouldn't
fancy a whole evening of listening to one person sing highlights, I'd
rather see a whole opera.

I'm sure there should have been a smiley in there because Paul Rodgers is
far from an opera singer, as you'd know if you googled his name. Paul
Rodgers was frontman of the legendary Free, Bad Company and now Queen - and
his tour will include hits from all three era's.
