RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, they finally convinced me to talk about this. I’m doing a rare Rush to Excellence appearance in Manhattan on the 29th, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. And I’m doing it at the Town Hall theater in Midtown Manhattan. It’s West 43rd Street near Times Square at 7:30 PM. There are precious few seats available, and they are available at WABCradio.com, or Ticketmaster. (interruption) Are the most expensive seats gone? Yeah, they’re gone. I didn’t know until just now what the ticket prices are. (interruption) No, I don’t have to pay to get in but I wouldn’t be surprised if they asked me to. (interruption) Oh, the StubHub and eBay and Craigslist, they got the after-market tickets. Oh, okay. So that’s happening. The scalpers you mean. Four hundred, 500 — oh, okay, so the scalpers have gotten in there and some of the most expensive seats available are at 400 and 500 bucks because the scalpers picked up a whole bunch of them.
So there’s precious few left. That’s what this is all about. Okay. Yeah, ’cause it sold out and then all of a sudden tickets became available and that’s because these StubHub guys and the after-market guys had picked up their share for resale. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Any hit Broadway show, that’s what it is, the legal scalpers. I’m not using the term scalpers in the literal sense. Brokers is what we’re talking about here. So it’s Tuesday, November 29th, and these are the things I hate doing. I’ve been very open and honest about it, but I do a couple of them a year and they’re always in association with our fine, great EIB radio affiliates. So 7:30 PM on Tuesday the 29th at Town Hall theater, Midtown Manhattan, West 43rd Street near Times Square. Oh, the original ticket prices are $55 and $88, and now the brokers, StubHub, eBay, and Craigslist, the after-market tickets.
So if you missed the original, what was it, two days and they were practically gone, but now… I’ve been asked to mention that by the brokers, apparently, so… (laughing) I’m just kidding. Now that I’ve mentioned it, that’s probably gone already, sold out by now, but give it a shot, WABCradio.com and that’s the only one this year, right? ‘Cause I successfully wormed out of the three or four others that begged me, but this one for some reason I caved. So it’s Tuesday the 29th, Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
