Last week the Met handed out free tickets days before the Summerstage concert and a pleasant time was had by all.
Around 2pm on Sunday I walked by Central Park’s Summerstage with the hopes of maybe, just maybe, getting in to see Lee Scratch Perry. Ha-that’s a joke. The line was so long I couldn’t guess at the end of it and having wasted an hour of my life trying to get in to see Santogold at the same venue last year I walked right by. My friend Chris was less fortunate and he didn’t give up till he’d wasted three hours.
This is ridiculous. For the most popular shows give out tickets. Or at the very least close up your gates so people aren’t left endlessly waiting in vain.
It’s an insult to keep people waiting for hours and any team spirit the Parks might be hoping for is dead within the first 45 minutes.
