This afternoon I got an email from ticketmaster entitled “Ticketmaster Ireland – Ian Brown, Big Top, Phoenix Park Information”, which opened with:
Ticketmaster would like to take this opportunity to thank you for booking your Ian Brown, Big Top, Phoenix Park tickets with us. Please read this email carefully as it contains information regarding venue accessibility.
It’s great to see MCD and Ticketmaster do something, anything, regarding customer comfort and safety after numerous embarrassing incidents at the likes of Oxegen, Barbara Streisand and Oxegen; but there’s one tiny problem…
I’m not going to see Ian Brown. I have made no effort to go and see Ian Brown. I have not made any enquiries about going to see Ian Brown. I have not even visited the Ian Brown event page on ticketmaster.ie until tonight.
That said, if they really want me to go it would be rude of me not to – I assume the tickets will be in the post soon, so? They’d better hurry up.
