I'm not sure if you can see it or not, but this is a picture of the crowd holding up their lighters. Yes, their lighters. The lead singer was prepping the crowd for a song and mentioned that "back in the day", people used to hold up lighters when they played this particular song. But nowadays, most people hold up their cell phones. The Idahoans in the crowd were seriously offended by the notion of holding up a cell phone. So they all whipped out their lighters. And the band was dumb-founded. Me too.
We saw a wide variety of people - and even some kids. It was a good quality show for kids...
And I don't even know what to say about this one.
The lead singer took every opportunity he could get to opine about our economy today. Let me share with you a few of his thoughts.
Thought 1: I see some Motley Crue, Kiss and AC/DC shirts out there in the crowd. And that's what it's really all about. Some great bands coming together to make some great music. We are all one united nation of rock. There are some people out there who will try to tell you that rock 'n' roll is irrelevant. You can tell them to !*#$ &%^$!!
Thought 2: Friends who drink together, stay together.
Thought 3: In this economy, we all need friends and music. You are all our friends and we have the music.
Now don't you all feel enlightened?? And to wrap up a great evening, after the last song, everyone just left. No one even pretended to want an encore. Peace out, man.
