    unfortunately I don’t have a “Loved one”, but I still enjoy awesome music at cool venues. And would cool to make the 14th Feb bearable for another single soul.

    Myself and Nathan really really need these tickets. We are broke students who would love to spend our second Vday together in the glorious romantic setting of Backsberg and surrounded by the smooth tunes of the Plastics! It would be the best Valentine’s gift ever for us. Plus the wine would go down very well indeed. Backsberg has been our wine of choice for quite some time. If you believe in the magical powers of love, you will let us have this fantastic prize ??✨

    Backsberg wine wins the prize
    And the Plastics songs is really nice
    Love writing is not easy
    And my poem sounds really cheesy
    We deserve the tickets for trying
    And not give up and crying

    Winning these tickets would mean the world to me and my loved one, it’s our first Valentine’s day together as a couple and we’re expecting our first born anytime now, so February is not only the month of love to us, but also a month of great expectations. Having to save up every penny we have, we can’t really afford to be paying for concert tickets, but I know we both would want to do something special for the other. Most woman usually expect the guy to go all out and proof his love, but I think it’s time we as woman change our mindsets and that is why I am commenting on this page, because I would like to show the man of my dreams and soon to be Daddy, Ettiene September, just how much he means to me and how much i appreciate everything he does for me.

    So me and my girlfriend have been together for 7 years now. She calls herself a hopeless romantic and i am the complete opposite of that. Not one valentines have i exceeded her expectations before. So this year im hoping to change that, and what a perfect way to celebrate it with a awesome picnic, bottle of wine and sweet tunes. These tickets would definitely suffice right about now!! 😀 😀
