I get Hystaria when your near


OK, so I am back..









First off, getting there sucked..Map quest gave me directions going down 35W which is closed because, holy shit, the bridge collapsed last month and mother trucker, they aint done re-building it yet..









So it took me about 2.5 hours to get to the Hotel when it should of only taken my 1 hour 10 minutes...








Not cool.








I went to the fair to meander...It was about 100 degrees...so I was a bit chilly.






Then we went back to the room to get ready for the show..









The Hotel had free shuttle service to the fair, which was a plus, because holy shit again I suffer aniexty when I have to drive where there are other cars on the road and I dont know where I am going...








Here are some pics..










I was not as close as I have been last few times, but row 8 is nothing to complain about...so I wont..




ok, I did..but still.









































My mom took that....I was laying on my sleep number bed..


































Mom and I before our honey's came on stage.
































That there, is MY honey.










































































































































































































































Yeah so, that's all I will bore you with, of course I took damn near 100 pics...so you can thank me later.
I could tell you about all the OLD people I saw, some which were missing teeth. I could tell you about the woman who was so plump she could not fit in her seat, I could tell you about the drunk guy who came up to me and asked for my number..I could tell you about all the people who made comments about my Lepp tattoo..I could tell you about some crazy people I met thru the Def Leppard fan club...
But I wont...

Glad it was fun. I personally have never been to a concert. I think you have to like people to go to one of those, and really, the radio does me good.

Cheeky said...

I am soooo glad you had a great time! I thought about you yesterday at the show.

So how did you like your sleep number bed? When I slept on one last week on vacation ....mine was possessed....bwahaha

I hope You have a few momentos from all your shows. A pick, or a set list....
Good to see you back! My Mom was kind of a folkie (but she's 79) into Peter Paul and Mary, Arlo Guthrie etc.
You have one cool mom!

Jamie Dawn said...

You and your mom look totally COOL!!
How fun!!
Row 8 is pretty close. Courtney and I were in row 8 of an N'Sync concert about six years ago in Washington, D.C. I could see them sweat, so it was pretty darned close. Courtney was crazy about the gay one, before she knew he was gay.
So I suppose Def Leppard still has the one armed drummer. Amazing!!

Flip Flop Goddess said...

HMM,
coo coo huh?

JD,
well, when I was a teen I had a thng for New Kids on the Block, so we are all allowed one screw up:)

Didnt u see the pic of the one armed drummer?...he was there....go look:)

nora said...

Row 8 is still damn good.
Tell those boys to put some shirts on.
The drummer picture is classic!

The no teeth people are meth addicts and the fat chick is in recovery. Love Def: Pour Some Sugar on Me.
My mistake: I loved Shawn Cassidy in 6th grade and my first concert was the Bee Gees.
