16 emotions Garth Brooks fans will experience while trying to buy tickets online tomorrow

You’ve got a five minute window, otherwise you’re out.

NO MATTER WHAT your musical tastes, you’ve probably found yourself in the position that Garth Brooks fans will be in tomorrow morning.  They’ll have a window, a small window during which tickets for his gigs will be available, and after that it will all be over.

We’ve all set our alarms at one time or other, to get our hands on hotly anticipated tickets.  Whether it’s One Direction tickets for your daughter, tickets to see REM in the Olympia, or your only chance to catch Disclosure, the feelings are the same.

Here are 16 emotions you experience when trying to buy tickets for a gig at the same time as everyone else.

Excitement

great

This is going to be great.  You, and all your mates at this amazing gig that everyone wants to go to?  It could be the best night of the year.

Fear

A lot of people want these tickets. What if you don’t get them? What if the people who queue up at Ticketmaster get them all?  Maybe you should queue up in town, at least then you’d be sure to get them…

Readiness

when-you-forget-to-set-your-alarm-but-wake-up-on-time-anyway

You’ve set your alarm. You’ve reminded your mates to set their alarms.  Your laptop and phone are charged.  Between all of that you’ll definitely get them.  You are ready for this.

Anticipation

44

You’ve got the screen open.  You’ve cracked your knuckles. You’ve clicked the mouse a few times to make sure it works.  You are ready to hit refresh.

Paranoia

The site says they’re not on sale yet.  Are they really not on sale yet?  Are they on sale for everyone else?  Is it just you? Is your clock wrong? What if your clock’s wrong? Do they go on sale at nine exactly or a minute before? Or a minute after?  WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Adrenaline Rush

THEY’RE ON SALE.  It’s go time.

Terror

Why does the site keep crashing?  Why is this happening?  Is everyone else getting tickets?

Rage

WHY

This is BULLS**T!  They knew that there would be loads of people on trying to buy these tickets, why is the site crashing?  Why does this always happen to you?

Relief

Aaaand you’re back in, things could be ok yet.

Jealousy

s3j

That jerk you know has already posted on Facebook about having their tickets.  How did they manage that?  You’ve been trying since 8:57 and you can’t get through the ticket selection page?

Irritation

Delivery method?  Who has time for a discussion on delivery method at a time like this?

Hope

order

There it is.  The elusive ‘submit order’ button!

Rage (again)

rage

VERIFIED BY VISA WOULD YOU EVER FECK OFF!  That clock is ticking and you can never bloody remember this password.

Palpitations

They’re confirming your order, and you just wish they’d confirm it faster because you can practically smell the gig at this stage but until you get that e-mail you won’t be happy.

Unbridled joy

daniel-bryan-yes

You got them!  Time to Facebook, tweet, text and jump up and down.

Nonchalance

Paris-Hilton

Five minutes after the process all of those intense emotions are a distance memory.

You’re completely nonchalant.  Did you get tickets? What tickets?
