Man and wife lose 30 show tour pass to Kings of Leon through MTV, due to canceled tour
If you don't know about the contest we won there is more info here kolcontestwe were the 2nd place winners which was the tour pass to all 30 of kol's shows in the US for the summer of 2011 now canceled!
Here is our newest video with footage of the 2 seconds we were in the Kings of Leon video 'Back Down South' Hope you enjoy our little funny video!
I couldn't wait any longer so I sent my tour pass contact another message! Her name is Sasha and she works with a company called pop2life and to the best of my knowledge they take care of winners and other aspects of prizes and contests.
First of let me say how wonderful Sasha from pop2life has been! She has been really nice to me and I know she has been working hard to get an answer for me!
I won the tour pass through MTV and that is who Sasha has to wait on for my answer! She told me that the reason it was taking so long is the fact that this has never happened to them before! If you think about it how many times are a whole tour been canceled and of those times no one probably had a tour pass to all of the shows,so this probably has them all wondering what they should do. I just wished they would hurry up and decide!
Now that the tour is canceled me and my wife are stuck with hotels all over the US that we cannot get a refund from! The reason we cannot get a refund is because we pre-paid for our rooms way back in march or April so we could get the lowest rate possible but with that low rate came the issue of no refund no matter what the reason! Now we either have to go and try to enjoy ourselves or we stay at home and lose the money anyways! This really hurts us financially which we were ok with when we had the tour pass but now it is just more insult to injury!
We really do love Kings of Leon and we hope they all get the rest they need! That is why we haven't really gotten upset at the band because we are both hard working, but poor people and we know how hard the band has worked... without a real break! We just hope that we can go see them like we were going to this time! But we know the chances of that are probably slim to none at best! It makes me wonder if any of them know that we lost our tour pass! I do know that Jared said in an interview that he watched all the contestants videos that we all had to send in as part of the contest!
So we are going but since we were going to see the shows and that was all free, we didn't need any money to enjoy ourselves but now we do and we don't have it! I wish MTV would just give us the money that the tour pass was worth so we could at least enjoy our vacation! If we would have known we would not be taking our vacation in the places we are, we would have went somewhere of our choosing and it would have been cheaper to get a hotel for a solid week somewhere as opposed to all over plus all the driving we have to do!
I just hope we hit the lottery or something before we leave in 3 days! haha Maybe if we had the money we would see Band of Horses show in Denver but that would take away our gas money of getting home! This really bites!
