John Hiatt & Lyle Lovett FREE TICKET GIVEAWAY for tonight’s sold-out Merrill show-Winner Chosen!

By: Aimsel Ponti

The hottest tickets in the world…for today at least

Miracle in the Press Herald newsroom. I’ve just been handed TWO TICKETS to tonight’s sold-out John Hiatt & Lyle Lovett show at Merrill Auditorium in Portland. And guess what?


Time is of the essence so let’s get right to it.

Wanna win?

WRITE A HAIKU about your love for either of both of these gents.

(and in case you need a refresher, a haiku is a three line poem. Line 1 = five syllables, line 2 = seven syllables, line 3= five syllables

Here’s an example:

What a great contest!

Lyle Lovett rocks my world

Haitt’s also cool

Here’s what you need to do:

Post  your haiku in the comment section of this blog post by 3 p.m. today! Winner will be selected and notified by 4 p.m.

And, because I’m awesome and because the Press Herald is so close to Merrill, I will stick the tix in an envelope and drop them off at the box office for you!

Ready? Set? Haiku! You can do this!

AND WE HAVE A WINNER!!! Congrats to Sonya Durney who wrote this:

She was a waitress

words from a Lyle Lovett song

’bout a girl who shares my name
