And if you’re like most concert fans, you probably have a busy schedule ahead of you as we wrap up 2002. What with office parties, decking the halls and making plans for those seasonal tours, such as Martina McBride’s “Joy Of Christmas,” and Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and Charlotte Church starring in , you’re probably wondering how your going to find the time to buy all those gifts for your loved ones.

We can help.

Presenting holiday gift packs, the fun way to spread Christmas cheer this holiday season. For only pennies more than you would spend on fine jewelry or a good bottle of wine, you can send a package of tour dates to those closest to you this holiday season.

Imagine! Imagine the look of delight upon your children’s faces on Christmas morning as they unwrap the schedule for Sneaker Pimps. Imagine the joy and happiness your spouse will feel as he or she gazes upon the routings for Royal Beat Conspiracy and Mitch Ryder. And imagine your family’s expressions of joy and bliss when they see our “Powered by” designer label printed on the bottom of each and every itinerary, including The Gourds, Branford Marsalis and Counting Crows. Trust us, they’ll be speechless.

But it doesn’t stop there, for the holidays are also a time to remember those less fortunate than yourself and we’ve lined up an exquisite line of charity packs, including the listings for Goo Goo Dolls and India.Arie, to give to a poor, starving child in a third-world country. Angola, Afghanistan, Saskatchewan, no matter how far or how desolate, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve made it possible for an orphaned waif to experience the wonder that comes from knowing that will play Boston February 4 through 9.

So, make this Christmas a Christmas by giving the finest in tour dates, including the listings for Ekoostik Hookah, Confederate Railroad and The Les Claypool Frog Brigade. Not only will your family and friends love you for it, but you’ll feel good about yourself. And seriously, isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
