I did everything I could to get my hands on two tickets for his “Cowboy Rides Away” Tour, but I think I had a better chance of getting 50-yardline Super Bowl tickets!
There was not a single person who was willing to part with their tickets - regardless of the price I offered! IT SUCKED!
I only saw him in concert once, back in 1988 - it was awesome then, so I can only imagine how great a concert with all of his 50+ #1 hits scattered throughout the show would have been!!
I bought a pair of tickets off Stubhub for over $400, but it was worth every penny of it.
He got on the stage at nine and told us he hoped we were in no hurry to go nowhere, because it 11:30 when he left the stage. He did over 35 songs and 3 duets with Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Cheryl Crow. My wife and I are so glad we did it, it was one for the ages. It’s on youtube, and I hope they release a DVD for his last concert at Jerry’s house.
