The Waits is over!

I’M A VERY HAPPY MAN!

The other day I mentioned how desperate I was to get Tom Waits tickets but that getting them was looking rather grim.

Well, he announced dates for the rest of his European tour and – sure enough – there were no other UK dates other than the two Edinburgh ones that I’d be in Canada for. My heart sank.

However, there were two Paris dates a couple of nights before we leave. I got the link to a pre-sale by the concert promoter; they went onsale 36 minutes ago. The server got hammered, but just a few moments ago I managed to get the page to load and my limited French sufficed for me to order my tickets.

Oh, yes. That’s right. Tom Waits at Le Grand Rex in Paris in July. This will be cool.
