I have my “Courage”

… what about you?

Eh, okay, a little cryptic, and what follows has absolutely nothing to do with books, reading, or even authors. But the fact that I live in Québec City, and Céline Dion’s world tour, COURAGE, is stopping here for two tour dates and … drum roll please, WE SCORED TICKETS!

We had to book online, but did so yesterday, via TicketMaster, and, as American Express card holders, got the chance to book before the general public, along with all of Céline’s fan club.

It was tense when we logged on at 10 am exactly, along with … 10K plus other buyers. I thought we wouldn’t get a ticket with that many ahead of us. But, lo and behold, the ticketmaster gods were with us, and the number crashed really quickly as those ahead of us dwindled and then?

WE SCORED TICKETS. Albeit up maybe in the nose-bleeds. The RR section. But, and here’s the kicker, with a direct line of sight down the centre to the stage. A head-on coveted view, IMHO!

Oh, and the concert isn’t till September, so don’t hold your breathe waiting for photos.

    Yaaaaaay! She has an incredible voice Alexandra! I still remember her when she sang for the Eurovision contest. Have fun! Still trying to catch up with the comments!!!

      I know, I love her to bits and have a lot (and I mean, a lot) of her albums! And I can’t wait till September now. 😀

    Well done! I have friends who have seen her performing live in the UK a couple of times and they say she’s fabulous!

      We saw her on the Plains of Abraham here, back in 2008. A huge outdoor concert she gave to the city, for FREE, for the City’s 400 anniversary. After all, she is a Quebecker. 😀

      So we know she’s going to be spectacular, and this is her opening concert for the tour, too.

    Ah, nice you managed to find tickets 🙂
    A friend of mine is a massive fan and whenever tickets go on sale she’s in war mode 😀

      We’ve been big fans from the get go. 20 years? And as she hasn’t been on the road for a long time, and there was no way we’d ever get to Las Vegas, we couldn’t miss the chance of seeing here here, in our own City, right? 😀

      And this is where she’s kicking off her world tour.
