Conan O'Brien Tour PosterI’ve been a fan of Conan O’Brien since I was in high school.  When I used to stay up late at night, I watched him on a lot on Late Night.  Over time, I didn’t get to see him as much because I was going to bed earlier or doing other things.  When he took over The Tonight Show, I watched whenever he had someone on that I was interested in.  I was highly disappointed when The Tonight Show was given back to Leno.

When I heard recently that Conan might be going on tour, I knew I wanted to go if it came anywhere nearby.  Yesterday, the tour dates were announced.  It took a few minutes to get on the site because of all the traffic, but once I got in I knew that I would either go to Atlanta, Manchester (TN), Dallas, or Austin.  I’ve been to Atlanta recently and I’ll be going again soon.  The Tennessee show is during Bonnaroo.  When I go to Bonnaroo for the first time, I want to stay for the entire festival and it seems like I should’ve already started planning for Bonnaroo if I were going there.  Also, both of those shows are in June and I wanted to go sooner.  I ended up picking Austin over Dallas because I still want to see Austin and I didn’t get to go last year like I wanted to.  It would take something major to stop me this time.  It’s on May 14 and I hope nothing at work comes up in that short of a time.  The tickets are paid for and the hotel room is booked.  I’ll finally get to see Texas for the first time.
