HEY :D

If anyone going to this show wants a buddy to attend with them, LET ME KNOW!

I'm from Louisiana (no concerts here, unfortunately) and Houston will be the nearest venu for me.

I called in and they said the ticket on sale date was postponed. They couldn't give me any info and said the new date would be put up on the website as soon as they found out. I think it might have to do with the two week delay and Chris' injury. :(

^^^Yup, the name gave it away huh? lol. I wanted to make it to the last show in Houston but couldn't. I really would've preferred to have seen em at the woodlands, but oh well. I'm just afraid I won't get good seats 2morrow. :( Oh well, any seat should be good as long as I'm there. crossing fingers on floor seats though. :wink3:
