pretty please?

i really want to go to the killers concert in salt lake on the 26th of september. they are my favorite band and they put on such a great show. i love them. i have already seen them two-and-a-half times, so i am having a hard time justifying paying to go to another concert, but i want to go soooooooo bad.
a couple years ago i saw the drummer, ronnie vannucci, at the salt lake airport when i was getting back from christmas break. i didn't want to be lame and go up to him, but my friend convinced me to and the following awkward conversation occurred:
me: hey, aren't you ronnie from the killers?
ronnie: yeah, i am.
me: you guys are my favorite band. your music is so good, so mazel tov.
ronnie: mazel tov? (laughter) have you watched fiddler on the roof lately?
me: (awkward laughter) no, i just enjoy judaism. can i get your autograph?

yeah...i'm pretty awkward. "i just enjoy judaism" who says that? i should have just said, "no, i'm jewish." it wouldn't have been a lie because i am an eighth jewish after all. he was super cool and nice though. i am still so mad i asked for an autograph and not a picture. i had my camera with me and what good is an autograph going to do me? not much. he did write "city of salts" along with his signature on my baggage claim ticket, which was kind of cool.

the moral of the story is that i want to go to the killers concert. i think you should go too and maybe buy me a ticket??? i promise they will not disappoint and neither will i.

i am so there with you. i love them, but i have already seen them in concert, and they just get more and more expensive to see. but...by bf has NOT seen them and i feel it important for me to convert him to the ways of the killers, asap. basically, i may go to the killers instead of eating in september and i think that's a good choice.
