For two weeks I tried to buy handicapped accessible tickets to the Rolling Stones concert July 1 at Carter Finley Stadium.
I called numbers off Ticketmaster websites, received emails informing me an agent would call me and been on hold 10 to 20 minutes only to be cut off or told to call back later. I finally got a real person on the phone who transferred me to a supervisor. The supervisor chastised me for not getting my tickets sooner, told me he could get me tickets on the side of the stage for over $300 each as if it were a favor then refused to give me his name or connect me to a supervisor.
Now all my friends have great tickets for less than $300, and I have nothing. I’ve contacted other ticket sites, and they have tried to help, but they can’t tell me which seats are for handicapped patrons.
I have even been working to get up on my arm crutches so I could get by with an aisle seat. So will I get to see the Stones? Not if I am still dismissed as a second-class citizen due to my disability.
