A few months back, Down's publicist pitched review tickets to the writers and editors in the cities the band would be playing, only to withdraw the offer a day or so before the show. The same thing just happened yesterday; I was told by the publicist that Lil Wayne's management had pulled publicity tickets in New Orleans, and that the tickets I had been offered by the publicist weren't available anymore. In this case, the matter was made worse by the fact that they weren't all pulled; the writer for The Times-Picayune was hooked up by the publicist who told me i was shut out. On the other hand, photo pit passes were available. Draw your own conclusions.
