my boys know me so well. birthday present at lunch.
envelope  1 a printed pic of rick astley , envelope 2 a printed pic of aha .  answer i had to get was  tickets to their concert in feb. both of them! im taking my best friend , we have known each other since we were 5! and we are now months short of 50! Super excited for the concert
DH is kindly on kiddy  minding duties.

i often think my life is sh*t but things like this make me realise i am luckier than i feel sometimes.

edit this is from my 3 oldest sons  - 25, 21 and 18  and i am quietly in awe of what wonderful children i have accidentally raised! i would not have thought to do that for my own mother and she is so much nicer than me!
there is no way i would have thought to  buy the tickets for a musician from when she was young , let alone printing the pictures

edit 2 - i just remembered i gave my mum tickets to neil diamond about 25 years ago . no printed pics but phew im not as lousy a daughter as i had myself pegged,

OT - i love neil diamond - i blame my mother. :yes:

I would so buy that for DH and present it with..... "for your birthday, I am giving you a night off.  I got ME Rick Astley / Aha tickets and the good news is that YOU don't have to come with me!  Happy Birthday!

I'm sure he would love it!  LOL

I'm sure hall passes are able to be updated or transferred, at least annually.

I’m seeing them too but the main attraction for me is a-ha. I still remember the night they played Melbourne last time and how devastated my 15-yr old self was that I couldn’t go. Time to make up for lost time!

Oh wow! Thank you, I had not seen that before, and just hung on every word. Morten is just as gorgeous as ever too!

I'm contemplating buying tickets for my 16 year old DS for Xmas. I would have to accompany him of course! He has such a varied taste in music and likes both Rick and Aha. Do you think a 16 year old would be/feel out of place there?

I took my mum to an Eagles concert. i was in my late 20's at the time & I was certainly not the youngest person in the room.

My brother and I went to Hell Freezes over we were about 19 and 22. Maybe a year older.

Thanks for the support. I, of course, would have to accompany him. Tonight driving home he played songs from Neil Diamond, My Chemical Romance, Oasis and Michael Buble so his music tastes are very varied!

Given both Take On Me and Never Gonna Give You Up  became popular meme songs that got kids listening to them I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than a few teens there as well :)
