When news spread that Adele would film a one night only show at Radio City Music Hall, tickets became a frenzy. Instead of monetizing fans and charging the boat loads of money that could be charged for Adele’s first US show in years, tickets were given away for free, lottery style. I was not selected, nor was any member of the EST. 1997 staff. So why am I writing this? Well, where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Over the weekend I jokingly came up with this ridiculous idea: go stand outside the show with a sign that reads “Hello from the outside. At least I can say that I’ve tried.” Hysterical, no? I mentioned this to a colleague at my full time job, who thankfully had the perseverance to get me to get some poster board and make it happen, along with his help. We never could have guessed our result.
