Yesterday I received this email from the good folks at MLSE:
Hey MICHAEL,Good thing my name was in all caps, as I sometimes forget it...
Sum 41 will return to their hometown to perform live at Centre .
As an MLSE Live Insider this is your exclusive opportuntiy to purchase 2 tickets for the price of 1.
But I'm not writing about email style; I'm writing about the sad state Sum 41 seems to find itself in: two-for-one ticket deal? Whoa, I don't think the local polka and folk music festival has an offer so generous.
The cost for a pair, by the way, is $32.50, plus all the bizarre convenience fees Ticketmaster charges to penalize its customers.
I last wrote about Sum last July after the band released its new album that sounded wholly unoriginal. I'm not surprised ticket sales are not great for their tour but I never thought a two-for deal was in the band's future.
