I am on the mailing lists of a number of ticket agencies, as I imagine many of you are. See Tickets does it for me most of the time, but occasionally others have unique gigs to sell.
Today I received a mailshot from Ticketmaster. What caught my eye was not the mind-numbing drivel that I didn't want to attend including Once in a Lifetime Country with Kenny Rodgers and Sooty's Magic Castle, but the sentence, 'Check out these event(s) that matched your interests.' So what does Ticketmaster's customer profile software reckon will get the Tilley household out of their comfy chairs in the evening? Please don't titter:
Lordi (the Finnish rockers who won Eurovision)
Oh dear. I'm a glamrock loving, orc-aping metalhead.
