Renée in Dallas, Texas wrote to tell us about her recent experience using the MyCityRocks Ticket Exchange! She made a plan to surprise her husband with a trip out of town, keeping it as a secret that they were going to see The Rolling Stones play in Chicago. She used the MyCityRocks Ticket Exchange to buy a pair of tickets, just six rows behind the Pit. Rene wrote “It was incredible…best show ever. 2 hrs and 15 mins without a break. We stood the entire time… and trust me, [my husband] doesn’t stand at concerts. They were so energetic and haven’t slowed down one bit. [My husband] loved it, truly!! And the seats were great…thank you!!!!”
Is there someone special in your life who would appreciate a similar surprise? The Stones tour continues through June 24 in North America, with upcoming dates in Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC before they head across the pond to London.

The Pittsburgh Penguins lead the Boston Bruins 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, and to complicate matters, the Penguins lost center Gregory Campbell for the rest of the NHL playoffs with a broken right leg.
