I am completely gutted!

Recommended Posts

Do you guys remember a few weeks ago when I came on the forum and was completely estatic? I had just learned that Peter Tork was planning to do some performances in Germany after the Monkees concerts ended? Well, what I thought was some gigs around Germany actually equated to one gig that might as well have been on the dark side of the moon!

So, here's the long and massively heartbreaking story.

On Friday, after Stas and her husband left for Cologne, I was nursing Sven back to health and sometime during the early evening hours, we got a message through the Peter Tork page on Facebook saying that Peter was flying to Germany to perform before heading back to the States to start the North American leg of the Monkees tour. What I thought would be late July early August when he would come turned out to be THIS WEEKEND!

Since his 'official' page had no information on the gigs or where they were going to be, Sven and I started doing the leg work. Along with my friend Tam, we started storming Google looking for information. When we found it, I realized that my dream of seeing Peter in concert or meeting him wasn't even going to happen. The place where he was to perform is clear on the other side of the country and was sold out back in January.

The official pages outside of Facebook had no information. I checked his official page, and it had all the tour dates listed...all but this one! There was no information about it, and so we posted our findings on the Facebook page, and I asked if there were any plans for Peter to perform in Germany this year, and they said 'not that we know of'.

The blurb that was posted about them performing in Germany was alluded to on May 2, some 4 months after the tickets for the gig in question had sold out. Sven said that we could have driven to the venue in the hopes of crossing paths with Peter, but this place is near the Czech border, some 400 Kilometers (200+ miles) from here.

I'm completely gutted! Last night, I cried my eyes out. I know that it seems trivial, but this was the one thing that really made me happy about the summer months. Now, there's really nothing for me to look forward to. So, along with not even knowing what the future will bring, I have this to add to what seems to be an endless list of utter disappointments.

My friends leave on Monday, and all I can think of is 'what next?'

On top of that, I have another stupid migraine.

Ah, Tiddles...I'm so sorry about this!
I know how much this meant to you. Okay, tomorrow we are going to eat a bunch of chocolate and have a great Girl Time! Okay?

yeah. I just have to get over this headache. I guess that means that I have to come to Portland in conjunction with a Shoe Suade Blues concert.
