I really appreciate the fact that Sammy and his team are trying to eliminate camping out for tickets along with enticing new comers to Cabo.
However, like many veterans, I feel the old way was just fine.
Ive noted before that is is my opinion, if you wanted to get in to see a show, get in line and get a ticket.
If you want in, you get in. With this online ticket sale, well, it's a completely different scenario.
I think the end result is that you have less people going to Cabo and more disgruntled fans..
Camping out was part of the process. Noone really wanted to do it, but it was always fun and once you saw the show, you know it was well worth it. Like Wild Bill always says, "it's October 12th and this is what we do"
The cry from the new people was, I dont want to sleep in the street, or why would I go if I wasnt sure I could get in?
Well, sleeping in the street is how its done, and if you want in, get in line. Simple.
Now we are subjected to the reliability of technology to get us in to our coveted Cantina; not to mention we have to shell out $55 bucks for what used to be free.
Before, I said that the cash aspect wasnt that big of a deal since you have already laid out money for the trip, another few bucks shouldnt send you to the poorhouse. I still believe that, but just the fact you have to pay now goes along with the sweeping changes made this year that will add to many unhappy fans.
I am confident that Sammy and his team are enduring an abundance of complaints regarding this pre sale, but let's not forget, even though some of us feel it was just fine the way it was, Sammy was trying to please his fans and there is no way you can fault him for that. We all have trailed his career and we know what a genuine person he is and that he does indeed care about his followers.
With that in mind; thanks to Sammy and his team. See you in Cabo!
