I just got an email from Goldstar Events telling me that I could have “comped” tickets to a KT Tunstall show at the Wiltern in LA, presumably because no one bought tickets to the show.
The sad thing is, the Wiltern is only about a mid-sized theater venue, seating roughly 2,500 people. It’s not as if she was trying to play a large arena way over her head.
It just goes to show that being a successful touring artist has nothing to do with your Grammy nominations, Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack appearances, or Billboard Hot 100 single entries.
A shame, though, I kinda liked “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.” But not enough to take free tickets to a local show. Gas is expensive these days, you know.
