Madison Square Garden
New York, NY May 9, 2014
So, I made homemade color tickets for my wife in late January for her 45th Birthday to an undetermined Billy Joel Concert. He’s taken up “Residency” at MSG for 2014 playing 1 show a month for 12 months. I didn’t have a particular date or even the tickets in hand, and every show is sold out, but what the heck I’ll work it out. By dumb luck, a colleague of mine, who is also a part time ticket broker (I guess they retired the term scalper) overheard I needed tickets for the May 9th show and we had a brief 30 second conversation. In my email the next day, amazing free tickets to the exact show, in the exact section I wanted; provided we started doing business together.
