I know I mentioned this band in a post last year and how wonderful their historical songs were. Well, they’re on tour right now, and they’ll be in Philadelphia in March, just in time for my birthday! My younger brother and I said we wanted to go see them, but when no plans were made, I honestly thought that nothing was going to come of it, and just settled to take my actual birth day off from work (school will be on spring break during that week, so that was already covered).
Last week, my brother suddenly calls me into his room and says, “I want to get our tickets and hotel room for Sabaton in March.” I was stunned.
“I thought we weren’t doing that,” I said.
“We’re not missing them being so close to us,” my brother said and got on their website. We found the cheapest tickets and he purchased both of them with an, “Happy early Birthday.” We then looked up our hotel, which is about 7-10 minutes away from the venue where the concert is being held. Once he got that, I marked it in my calendar. He then said, “Oooh! We’re on the border of Jersey. We can visit our friend.” He rang him up, asked him for his address and told him to keep his calendar for March 7th open. So, we have a trip planned in early of March for a concert and to see our buddy. It will be an early birthday present, and we can say hi to our friend, whom we haven’t seen we went to Cedar Point last summer. Needless to say, I’m very excited!
And on that note, it’s been real!
