ok, i have, between two cameras, about 100 images and a couple of videos : ) i thought i'd just share a few cos i'm pretty sure i'm the only one who really cares enough to look through all 100 : ) so i pretty much told you the whole story i think. i didn't realize it at the time, but my new employee used her camera to video tape my reaction when rod came on stage. i was screaming like a 12 year old at a jonas brothers concert (my daughter's words, not mine). yeah.
trish asked what i did when we made eye contact and waved--i waved back of course. at some point during the concert i did yell i love you rod. however, i was not nearly as bad as the late 40 early 50 something woman in the sundress in front of me. if she would have had a pole she would have been right at home. she was shimmying up her skirt and standing on her chair at one point, desperately trying to get his attention. someone did bring him a bottle of water from the crowd and another person brought him a bacardi and coke (which he requested) from the bar. someone threw their market pass on stage when he sang maggie may and he put it on. later, in pictures, we realized the name on the tag was maggie too. he was incredibly gracious as people came up the aisle and had their pictures made, he'd wave and smile.
there were three wardrobe changes : ) it was hot, he got sweaty. he played for an hour and a half. however, he didn't do an encore, which i though was kinda weird.
