Can you feel the force?

It's happening!
It's very near!
We get news every day!
Exciting news!

Tracie (Rachel's PA) after the confusion with Spain and several emails has confirmed that she is sending me tickets for Hyde Park Calling. I am so happy about it! I wish and hope I can attend another UK show, but with my work commitments it looks really pale. I am dying to go to the Leeds University gig, since I studied there and it will also be a revival of Live At Leeds. But, again, it's very VERY difficult...

I am taking a very good friend of mine to the Hyde Park concert with me, someone who loves The Who as much as I do (if possible) and who has influenced me a lot about their music.
I owe him a lot and this is the least I could do!

Rumour (very distant and very vague) has it that The Who are playing MSG at Thanksgiving weekend. If that is the case I will do my best to go to USA for 10 days for that show and probably the LA show. I will do my debt, I mean my best, lol.
That means I will finally meet a lot of you. Fingers crossed I'll make it!

The joy that my boys bring me is something I cannot put into words. I listen to The Who every single day, every morning on my way to work, every time I go back home. They make me feel so happy, their music fills me with ecstatic feelings, I fly!
And when I see them live is like I own the world, I don't care about anything else.

I owe Pete, Roger, Keith and John the way I look at life.

Hi Marietta!

I am glad for you that you will at least be able to see them once. I will be unable to attend any shows. I will be in Sweden for a couple of weeks in October and I will not be able to take anymore time off fom work. I will be watching from the old internet if it is possible. Maybe I will see you!

Have fun!


BallerinaGurl said...

YEAH!!!!! You got your ticket issues worked out and I am THRILLED for you! YES YES you MUST come to the LA show. I will be the mental ballerina searching for Rachel's airstream! lol. Is it coming to the USA? how cool would that be!

Well thanks for the support. Drama over passwords solved that problem! no more threats and such! so I am happy and have all of you to blog with again...freely!

Offer is still open to come visit and travel together!

It's all so very exciting! I can't wait to meet you.
Even that picture you have posted, just teases with excitement, doesn't it? The gear is all there, we're just waiting for our boys!!!

Hi Marietta,
Wonderful news about getting your tickets to Hyde Park sorted out. Muy bonito that you're not Spanish, no?

I hope we can get together while I skip through London in early July, but will understand if you're busy and unable to.

I am wondering about that MSG rumour...that is my wedding weekend, and I was hoping they were not playing Toronto that weekend. So, as much as I'd like to go to the NYC show, I'd rather be able to make the Toronto one.

Have fun at the show!

I can feel the force, baby.

Hi Marietta,
I'm going to try to get tickets to their show in LA. If I do go, I'd like to meet you guys too. I'll be the one that's dressed like I should be at a Metallica concert, except I'll have a Who t-shirt on.

Dear Marietta

I love them so much, too!

I will be lucky if I am within a 5 hour drive of a show here in North America.

It must be one of the dues I have to pay for living in Paradise...
Still, I think my mountains would crumble if it weren't my love for The Boys!

Here's to debts, dues & fingers crossed!

Dale :)

Oh Marietta you are so lucky! It's going to be an amazing show I bet. Well, of course it is! I only wish I could be there with you! I am so happy for you though, and I hope you give us the play list and the highlights and all that, I know you will.

Hi Marietta, hope that you are well and having a rest over the weekend. I wish they would publish the dates and venues for the U.S. I heard the new single on Thursday on Radio 2. I think after hearing it a couple of times it will catch on. But there's is nothing like seeing them live. Might see you at Hyde Park? Take care. Mark

BallerinaGurl said...

Ohhhhhhh guess what...My girlfriend Gretchen just emailed me and told me that when she got married last month in Greece she and her new husband who live in Alexandria, Egypt are thinking of moving to Athens! i told her all about you and was so excited to have a friend in Athens. You will have to take me all over when I visit!


Elaine said...

Have you finished jumping up and down with excitement yet? I'm so thrilled for you!

Suesjoy said...

Hi Marietta!
I can feel your adrenaline rush! You're getting me pumped!
Thank you for the heads up on my blog about Rachel's post re: tix.
I had NO idea that backstage passes are included in this deal. OMG. That's crazy! :)
I thought we got to be on ITA. Didn't Rachel say that? I'm just happy to get tickets. Maybe I'll sell my pass. KIDDING!! LOL NEVER EVER EVER.
I'm dying to know the tour schedule for the US. I hope you come to L.A. that would be awesome.
Take care you crazy Who freak.

Suesjoy said...

YES I feel the FORCE.
May the force be with you!

Michael said...

You are soooooo lucky to be out there Im working on Plane tickets and stuff to go out there. I hope Rachel might hook me up if I go to a couple/3 shows. I have 2 weeks coming up and I have been doing well (money wise) at work so I have this chance to do it. Boring is nice sometimes but work has been draing my life and my families.....michael :)

To say I can't wait is an understatement!
