[exp] [/exp]This will be the year that I make it to a Green Concert at Piedmont Park. It was on my list of things to do a couple of years ago, but I had a conflict & couldn’t make it. Then we had a drought, and that was the end of concerts like that for a while. But it’s back for 2010, and I’ve bought my ticket for this year’s Green Concert. How could I not? It’s the Eagles. “Hell Freezes Over” remains one of my favorite CDs, so I’m obviously a fan of their live performances.
- It’s not cheap. And there’s no way around Ticketmaster for tickets. Believe me, I tried to find one. After fees, that $55 ticket cost me $75 (~$15 in regular fees + ~$5 in order processing). Ouch. If it’s any consolation (it’s not for me), a portion of the fees are donated back to Piedmont Park. I don’t expect to find a deal either. In fact, I won’t be surprised if it sells out, as it’s the Eagles.
- And “green” means more than just taking place at a park. It’s a car-free event, so you’ll need to walk, bike, or take MARTA into Piedmont Park. For those of you OTP, know that while Piedmont Park’s deck will be closed, other parking decks in the area, such as Colony Square, will be open. Note to the state of Georgia: Make it easier for those OTP to use public transportation.
- No outside food or beverage or pets are allowed. You may bring stadium or sand chairs. Check out the complete rules on Piedmont Park’s site.
See you there.
