Hello Ellen Forum,
I am planning to bring my son to Burbank in April. We are coming from Detroit in hopes of getting Day Of tickets but what my son really wants is a hug from Ellen. My 16 yr old son, Chase, is autistic. He is a HUGE Ellen fan and has been for over 8 years now. We have been submitting for tickets for two years and never received a call. Yet people I met thru FB tell me they submitted after us and got called. I watch for new dates and submit immediately. I wait the two weeks as instructed and then submit again. Every day for two years my son brings me the calendar and wants me to show him when we are going to see Ellen. He doesnt understand why I dont just buy the tickets from Ebay ;-) I told him we had to wait until he turned 14 or we would have tried sooner. Read on the website that min age is 14.
He wants to see her in person so bad and I promised him last year that if we didnt get tickets by this year that we would go out there and try for Day Of tickets. So.... am I crazy? Here we come in one month and we have no tickets and no idea what to expect or how to improve our chances of making it happen. I have sent countless messages to the show thru the website over the last couple years and entered the contests and you name it... the most I got was a return email from a producer of the show that said he would pass us on to the audience department.
This is a video I sent them. Please understand... this is for him.... if it wasnt so important to him I would NEVER go to this much trouble. My son means everything to me and this is #1 on his bucket list so what do ya do?
Any input, suggestions, ideas to make this happen for him would be appreciated. Tickets are already bought with my tax return so no turning back. Even suggestions for an Ellen sighting would be appreciated. We will be there Sun April 22nd thru Thurs the 26th.
