I've taken my wife to see MB at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi for the past six years and due to their policy of reserving all the floor seats for their VIPs and High-Rollers, we've never gotten good seats even on the day they went on sale. However, this year Michael has changed venues to the Hard Rock Casino and the minute the tickets went on sale, I got front row, seats 5 & 6! My wife is literally going to die when she finds out! My only problem now is that the December concert date is so far away. The suspense is going to kill me! :-)

YOU are NOT going to tell HER about front row seats.....OMG Chip how are you going to last till December.....don't fancy your chances much, think you will spill the beans before then BUT hey thanks a million for coming in and telling us about your seats for the concert and a huge WELCOME too to the forum and you must definitely keep us updated  as to how long you manage to keep your secret !! LOL   Wish you well with it but can I put a bet on with you ......you won't last past August !!!!!! LOL.

Welcome again Chip and great to hear from you !!! :)


Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Hi Sylvia, and thanks for the warm welcome. I've actually been on here before but rarely post unless it is about an upcoming concert in my area. We count on Michael visiting around August or September every year and I have already told my wife it didn't look like he would tour here this year since tickets are usually on sale months in advance. Therefore, she will really be surprised and it will make a great present for her November birthday. I also again want to mention how thankful I am with Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi for actually letting the real fans (and not the scalpers) get a crack at the front-row seats! 

Hey Chip, I don’t think I’ve read any of your posts before so I’ll welcome you to the forum too. I loved the audience in Ms: one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! All I can say is good luck not telling your wife, but better pray she doesn’t find out about it through ads in your area! You know, an idea that might be good, if you don’t think you can keep it in that long: maybe you can have a special dinner in August, exactly 3 months before your wife’s birthday and do the announcement then. I mean i’m sure that if it were only up to you, you might be able to keep a secret, but if there are TV, radio or billboard ads or someone you know tells her, it’ll blow your surprise. Well, whatever you do, break a leg Chip and God bless you for being such a sweet husband to your wife! :D Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

A little follow on from what Sylvie has said Chip.....now, what if your wife hears or sees about the concert and decides to give YOU the surprise of your life.......get where I'm going ??????? LOL    I guess though you know if she will have opportunity to see or hear about and whether she would mention to you first that a show has been announced....BUT.....only you know if you can take the chance and I certainly wish you well keeping your secret till November !! :)    Can I just mention, if you really like giving people "surprises" Chip, that my birthday is in April and I am hoping Michael may just announce a concert for Scotland early 2013 and obviously I am hoping for March or April AND it would only be ONE ticket needed Chip !!!!! ROFL.

To be serious, good luck Chip and please come back in and tell us what happens, please !!!!! :)

Sylvia, I'm prepared that she might find out as the casinos do advertise a lot on road signs around here. But, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. And if I do manage to come to Scotland next year and Michael is in concert, I'll be sure to buy you a ticket! :-)

I'll hold you to that Chip Adams as long as you let me buy you and your wife dinner in my little hometown and give you a little sightseeing tour as well, the deal is done !!! LOL.

Good luck with keeping that secret and something tells me you might just achieve it !!!! :)

Hello Sylvie, I appreciate the nice comments. I'll be sure and post back when I do "suprise" her.

Hello Chip and welcome....CONGRATS on the front row seats. She will die!! I know I would if someone surprised me with front row seats for MB..The best seats in the house!!! You are a great husband to do that for her!!! We hope you or she comes back on here to the Tour Review Thread and let us know how it went!!

Robin in MD:)

Hi Robin, my wife is one of Michael's biggest fans, and I feel that after six years of crummy seats, we've "paid our dues" so I was thrilled to be able to finally get good seats for her. I'm really looking forward to it and I know she'll have a blast!

Looks like scalpers got the rest of the front row seats...they are now on Ebay for $399 for two seats to $799 for four seats! Ugh, those pigs ruin it for the real fans!

P.S. My wife is still in the dark about the tickets! :-)

It happens unfortunately Chip. I've seen it alot over the years as far as the scalpers getting the front seats..UGH

Your wife will have a fun time..truly she will..Don't forget to let us know all about it afterwards on the Tour  Review Thread.

Robin in MD:)

Glad to hear the secret is still safe....you are doing well and if you ever feel the need to start talking about, for it is building up too much, come on here and vent and get it out of your system so that it can be kept for a while longer !! lol   I bet though you do manage to keep it and if your wife finds out it won't be for the want of you trying to keep it secret and at least it is pretty good that you have something definite to aim for as in her birthday when you know you can explode and tell all....can work out easier when you have something definite to focus on !! :)

As for the scalpers I know what I would do...scalp them !!   As far as I am concerned anybody that does that is scum and a darn criminal to boot and should have their number marked but I don't understand why eBay allows it for surely they have some method of checking what is being sold on their pages or do they just rely on the public complaining about things but can assure you if they ever appear on the UK site, if Michael has a concert here, I'll complain to eBay and maybe even a little e-mail to the Fraud Squad's internet page here in the UK plus I will call them out too on FB......little trouble maker..... yeah, my middle name !!! lol.

Hope the secret stays safe Chip and only want to hear what the reaction is from your wife when she finds out on her birthday in November....NOT before !!! lol.  Take care and keeping fingers crossed for you !!! lol.


Sylvia.   Your wee Scottish friend.
