DMB At Red Rocks?!?

Today is going to be a long day..  But first something FREAKIN AWESOME!  When I got into work this morning I received an IM from my friend Matt, pointing me to some SWEET news!

Dave Matthews Band to perform at Red Rocks
We are excited to announce that Dave Matthews Band will be returning to Colorado September 9-11, 2005 to perform three concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.

Tickets may be requested in advance of the public on sale through the Warehouse, the official DMB fan association. The Warehouse Ticketing request period will begin on Thursday, June 23rd at 7:00 p.m. ET and will end on Tuesday, July 5th at 7:00 a.m. ET. For more information or to join the Warehouse, click here. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Saturday, July 9th at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time.

Thought #1: BEST NEWS I’VE HEARD IN A LOOONG TIME!  Come hell or high water, I’m going to be there!  1 show at least – two would be awesome, but I’m aiming for the fences and want to be at all three.  In my excitement I made an impulse buy and now have a membership to the Warehouse DMB fan club – anything that I can do to get an edge on getting those tickets!  We’ll see how the pre-ordering period goes. 

Thought #2: My prediction was off by 3 days.  I was thinking Sept 11-13th, but it sounds like my sources have been pretty reliable once again

Thought #3: DAMMIT!  I am heading to VA this weekend to see him on the premise that he wasn’t coming to CO.  Now I’m spending nearly $400 in plane fairs, hotel, rental car all for a show I’m going to see later in the fall!  ARRGGH.  Oh well.

Crappy day at work, which I now need to get back to..  More on why this is such a long day!
