Myself and my buddy are flying from UK.
It all started a few years back just mentioning among friends if we could see any band in the last decade, who would it be? We both agreed how much it sucked we never got to see RATM. A comment of "I'd pay a months wages to see them" was said.
Another friend of mine made it to the 2000 Reading festival to see them and we hate him for that. This said friend posted a bullitin on his myspace some like "OH MY GOD!!!!111!!!" just giving a link to a news announcment saying how RATM were getting back together, but performing in LA.
It took 30 seconds before I started hunting for all the information, and ringing friends. Well....
Ive just stuck almost $700 on my credit card, oops! Need a flight now
Hopefully speak to a few peeps before we go and get ready for the drunkest weekend of my life x
