Crossroads: Sold Out!

I officially have my tickets for Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010!

Tickets quickly sold out within minutes after they went on sale Saturday morning at 10am Central.

As I hoped, I was able to get general admission field tickets for the show.  When the ticket purchase page went live, I was ready to go and after waiting a couple of nerve-wracking minutes for the Ticketmaster system to look for tickets, there they were - my golden tickets had been acquired.

As a teenager, I spent a nervous morning in line, waiting to buy tickets for my first Clapton show at Richfield Coliseum.  Anytime that I was stuck near the end of the line (as I was on that morning), I was always aware that there was a very good chance that I might not get tickets, which made the eventual acquisition of tickets a very sweet victory.

For a show like that, I was competing with Northeast Ohio for one of 20,000 tickets at the Coliseum.  All of these years later, the competition was global for one of the 28,000 tickets for Crossroads at Toyota Park, on a bill that features Clapton and over 20 additional artists/acts!

I had a short debate about going to this year's edition of Crossroads, since the lineup is very similar to the 2007 edition.  But then when I thought about how incredible that 2007 show was, there was no question about it - I had to go!

For those of you that didn't wind up with tickets - keep your eyes peeled and you might get lucky.  There were two additional blocks of tickets released in 2007 after the initial onsale.  The final block of tickets (which ultimately is how I scored my tickets that year) was released several days before the show.  So if you can stay flexible schedule-wise, chances are good that you might be able to grab tickets and make it to the show.

Anybody else going?
