Considering how health conscious Ringo is i hope it is a healthy one to eat - and meets his dietary requirements, don't want him opening up a tin of Heinz Baked Beans and sticking the candles in that.

There's a plug for you!

I had my tickets for the San Jose show, but I had a family emergency, and now I have 3 tickets I don't know what to do with them. 

I have tried to sell them everywhere, but it looks like there will be 3 empty seats in the VIP section of that show. :( 

I don't even want to make a profit out of them. I just want someone to be able to enjoy the show. 

Do you guys have any more ideas as to where I could go to try to sell? 

There is a site called stubhub (owned by ebay) that has a Ringo section (there may be others out there). That may be your best bet, otherwise its cutting your losses as there are plenty of tickets still available for the show.

@Matt Busby. Sounds like you have a good time ahead of you with family and Beatles coming together. Enjoy. And good luck with your youtube video.apple01 Remember to let us about your trip to see Ringo.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I'm so pissed - I left my phone at home on the charger, so no YouTubes :(  

We all enjoyed the show very much.  The seats were much better I than I thought - about 12th row, not too far to the side.

I waited until a quiet time and shouted out "happy birthday!". He heard me!  I got a pat on the back and a couple "good jobs" from nearby members of the audience.  Ringo didn'tseem so excited, but it might have been his deadpan sense of humor.  He replied "yeah, my birthday is coming up...now that we've gotten that over with...".

Something cool he did was - there was a 5yo girl in the front row holding up a sign.  Ringo went over, got the sign, read it to the audience and showed it to us.  He hugged the girl, told her she was beautiful.  Then he said "before you start lining up, I only do that to 5 year olds.". 

A good time was had by all.  Great concert for sure.  from my 76yo mother to me (51).

Aw, that's so sweet, and I love his sense of humor. Good for you being heard, Matt! I'm so excited to see him Monday at his birthday celebration, and then again at the concert!

Glad you had a great time. You possibly had a better time without worrying about taking video. Thanks for sharing.

What birthday celebration is this that you're going to see him at, @parlance?  Maybe I need to review this topic...

And you're right, worrying about taking the video is a pain (I've tried it a couple times before).  Still, it would be nice to have a couple songs to remember it by.  I'm sure the bootleg will be out soon enough though.

He'll be at Capitol Records on Monday - I posted at the news thread within the last week or so.

Good to hear you had a great time and a reply from Ringo too. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 Parlance is correct, without faffing about trying to record bits of the show you can enjoy it far more. 

A bootleg recording will come out eventually and it wouldn't surprise me if someone posts footage of the night on youtube at some point.

A couple details about the show follow, that I feel might spoil it for some, so I spoiled it a-hard-days-night-george-10 

One highlight (for me) was Don't Pass Me By - whereas my mother disliked it (I don't think she remembered ever hearing the song before).

Of course Photograph was great.  In general they really jammed throughout the show.  I guess that's what happens when you have high quality players at every instrument.

Todd Rundgren can flat out sing and play, albeit rhythm guitar (except he did jam a lead in one song).

Richard Page plays a 5 string bass, when he plays bass.  He's got a great voice too.

Ok, one more interesting thing happened.  There were two couples near the center front, dancing (vibrating at a high rate of speed) the entire concert nonstop.  To introduce one of his songs, Todd said "This one's for you [and pointed at them].  Yes you, the ones on ecstasy!"

I called the venue. There's no way to get the cake to Ringo so I cancelled the order. Oh, well. It was a fun idea while it lasted. What I had planned was

Happy Birthday

Seems a shame but i suppose health and safety nowadays restricts it. I hope you didnt have to pay for the cake.

Nope, I cancelled in time. They refunded the amount to my credit card.

Hum, a poster. I might have time to pull that together. We will see.

Mrs. Kite! I feel it's only right I welcome you first, please introduce yourself here!

@Annadog40 Glad you enjoyed the show!

@Ahhh Girl You're really bringing him cake? Hope you can meet him.

My browser keeps shutting down every time I try to edit so...

Edit: maybe I should read all the posts on the next page before replying.

Its cool so that Ringo talked to you... Pretty much... Maybe not directly to you but close enough...

AG, it probably is due to safety which is why my original joke after we came up with the cake plan was that we'd all be arrested for bomb scares.

No, no cake for Ringo. But the cakes from that bakery are so good. I'm tempted to get one and celebrate anyway.
