We were also sitting right by the backstage area where he entered and exit the stage. We were able to see all the action taking place backstage. We had the time of our lives! Some of you already seen these pictures on facebook but posted for the rest to see.

That's awesome CAH!

This will be.....interesting. Guess I'd better start finding other uses for plaid other than slip-covering eastern European countries, eh??!!!!!!!

I do pray that nothing will happen. The memory of the Marathon bombings is still fresh. Hoping no other city will have to go through such a thing.

What are you doing with our weather over in Germany? That sounds like our "spring" so far. Today it's gray, wet, and in the low to mid 50s(F). I had to put on a sweatshirt! Memorial Day weekend (in additional its memorial aspects, which too many people forget) is traditionally for doing summer things, like picnics and outdoor activities. Not this year.

They have a little place on a lake in Pennsylvania and this is the time of year that they start to spend a lot of time there. I'm baking a cake for tonight so I better get started on it.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Enjoy your road-trip-concert-following! I wasn't a fan like some others of my age, but I remember when they were the hottest thing going, and I had a friend who was absolutely nuts about the group. Will we get pictures and a full report? I hope so!

Glad you had a great concert experience!

This doesn't even compare, but ... the first time (of twice) that we went to see Straight No Chaser live, it was in a fairly small auditorium, and we were about five rows from the front---terrific seats, especially when they did their encore ("O Holy Night") without mics! So when they came back to town the next year, we got tickets. But that time they were playing in a huge auditorium, we were sitting near the back of the floor level, and the amplification was too loud. Nothing will beat that first experience. That was a great evening. It was in December, so they did a set of their Christmas music, including "The 12 Days of Christmas"---fun to see that done live. (They must be sick of doing that by now.)
