For the second day of our 8th anniversary, we thought up a few things you might not know about TicketNetwork.com, in no particular order.
1. We Provide Experiences
Our bread and butter might be listing tickets to thousands of concert, sports, and theater events, but our ultimate goal is to make sure our customers have a great time wherever they're going.
2. We Have a Fire Truck
Yes, you read that right, a fire truck. Why a fire truck? Well, it definitely helps provide us something a little different every year when it's pulled out for our annual Fourth of July celebration, and is a hit with the kids!
Fans at AT&T Park just before Billy Joel came on stage.
On September 5 during a trip to San Francisco, CA, I attended a concert by the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel. This was a very special night for him since it was the first time in 43 years that he was performing in the city. He last had a gig there all the way back in 1972, performing at the now-shuttered nightclub The Boarding House.
He played a great mix of his best known hits while also adding in some of his lesser known songs. There was "Piano Man" and "New York State of Mind" and "It's All Still Rock and Roll To Me," but also "Vienna" and "Zanzibar." It was an excellent show all around. It had great music, a great location on the water, and everybody was having a great time. There was definitely a good vibe going on in that ballpark, and some people were dancing the entire time (no doubt assisted in this endeavor by a drink or two).
Since then, I've had some time to think about why Billy Joel has held up as a popular touring artist all these years. I've come up with a few ideas which are, with the exception of the final one, in no particular order.
