The Who concert
Yesterday was the day for that eagerly awaited WHO concert! Well, eagerly awaited by one of us and probably dreaded by the other one!
This concert was something I just never expected would happen for me! It was so out of my range of possible dreams, I didn't even consider it or pursue it , for myself! (My sweet daughter surprised us with the tickets, knowing how much I would love to see The Who)
We were ready to leave for Tampa yesterday morning by 11:00. Here are some pics before we left. These Who CDs I brought along to prepare Charles for the concert! :) He doesn't know their music at all.
We had a very pleasant trip down to Tampa. Charles, at least, didn't seem to mind that I played the WHO music as we were driving! (I wanted to play some of the songs that I knew would be on the set list for the show!) We took time to have lunch on the way, still got to the motel in plenty of time to rest up before the concert at 7:30 . I even took a nap!
I was doing this a lot all day yesterday, remembering all the good WHO music I had listened to the previous 2 nights and anticipating what was to come at the concert!
(A continuous smiley face!)
We got to the venue and, to my surprise , were allowed to bring the camera in! I didn't expect to be able to get very good pictures -we were far from the stage- but at least I could get some photos of the show -as mementos!
These first ones are as we were going in! We passed pretty close to the stage here and Charles got this of me with the stage behind! About this time a lady stopped and asked if he wanted her to take a picture of both of us! He said, "He** no! I don't want anyone to know I've been here!" (and laughed!-a joke of course) Another guy came by and offered the same- and I said, "Yes! Take our picture, please!" Charles also told this WHO fan in a WHO Tee shirt, that he (Charles) was there against his will! haha
Anyway- that was just Charles being 'Charles.'
It wasn't gonna keep me from having a good time! It didn't!!
The concert was loud and wonderful, from the first moment to the last! I was on my feet, as was everyone else (except C.) almost the whole time they were on stage! How could anyone sit still through a Who concert?
Hey! They did not disappoint me at all! It was a great show!
My pics are not good but want to show a few anyway- just to share in the thrill of it all!
...and you can see I was happy-yes?
I felt sad seeing them walk off the stage- knowing I will probably never have the chance to see a WHO concert again!
I was still bubbly with excitement as we made our way back to our car and saying how I wish it could have gone on and on for a few more hours! Charles said he could not have stood another minute of it and that no one could pay him a $1000.00 to get him to set through another Who concert!!
LOL- A little over the top, I thought!
Oh well! To each his/her own!
Sure would be nice to have a friend to go to concerts with me! :)
