Finding Aretha Franklin tickets#1
Posted: 3/13/08 at 6:10pm
hey everyone!
I'm coming in to new york, and am obviously seeing many shows. However, I just extended my trip, and found out that I'm going to be there friday, the 21st, when Aretha Franklin is performing at Radio City. I'm a huge fan of hers, and was really excited when I found out I could maybe go.

The problem? The only tickets left are the wheelchair accessible seats, which I am not allowed to buy. Besides scalpers and Ebay, does anyone here know any way I could get tickets? I know it's a longshot, but I figured I'd ask around here anyway. Please let me know! Thanks everyone!

Are you SURE you want to see her? Given her near-elephantine state her voice is shot.

If you do want to see her, you could just go to the b/o the day of the show to see if there are cancellations.
Do you know what happens when you let Veal Prince Orloff sit in an oven too long?
