Trivia contest update!

By Amy | September 8th, 2009

It’s Tuesday, and that means we’re a day into our trivia contest! Questions one and two were posted yesterday, and they were:

Question 1: The Edge (of U2 fame) made a notable donation to a charity dedicated to helping musicians affected by Hurricane Katrina. What was the name of the charity, and what exactly did the Edge donate?

Answer: His 1975 cream Gibson Les Paul guitar.

Question 2: Keeping it light, Blink 182 singer Tom DeLonge joked several times during last night’s concert in Denver about his intention to “do it with” a famous sports star. What was the name of the lucky object of DeLonge’s affection?

Answer: John Elway.

What will the next questions be? Keep watching our @CTCTickets twitter and CTC Facebook pages for the questions, posted twice a day.

Want the current standings? After only two questions, here’s where we stand. There’s plenty of time to extend these leads, or to jump onto the board!

Eduardo V – 15
Ryan B – 12
Dan B – 7
Hoon P – 7
Jennifer F – 4
Liz L – 3
Angela V – 3
Rush L – 2
Megan P – 1

Welcome to the Coast to Coast Tickets Blog!

By admin | August 11th, 2009

….and then there was blog.

Welcome to the first post! Here at Coast to Coast, we’ve been a top seller of tickets for several years now, but we’re expanding to do more – we don’t just want to sell tickets. We want to be a source for information, updates and assistance in finding the best seats at the events you’re most interested in!

We’re on Twitter as @CTCTickets, posting discount codes and entertainment news. We’re CTCTickets on Facebook, answering tour date questions and promoting giveaways and contests. And now we’re on our own official blog, doing… well… pretty much the same thing, but right here on our own site, for anyone who prefers to to avoid the social media outlets.

What can we do for you?
