Shannon This one is for you Sweet.....

CONGRATULATIONS MANDII ON YOUR NEWS, AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU SWEET!


Well I promised you guys photos of the Cheap Trick/Def Leppard concert & here they are. A friend who came with us took these photos on his Mobile phone, because Noggins here forgot to take her camera didn't she! Ok so this is Cheap Trick, oh wait of course you can see that, dah!

This poor guy stood in front of me all night, he was one of the security guys placed around the stage to stop over zealots fans getting onto the stage (not that I ever considered doing it hum hum). It was his first job & he had to look at this geriatric 48 year old fan dancing, singing her lungs out, (oh & Im not too proud to admit that I am utterly tone deaf!) & generally getting carried away with the whole atmosphere of the night. That's Joe Elliot by the way, the lead singer.


The lighting show was just incredible & not to mention very very hot from where we were standing, right in the very front. Best seats, ooops standing spot in the whole place. This is Phil Colin.



They set the Microphones up right in front of us about half way through the concert, & dead set I could have just reached out & touched both Joe & Phil honestly I could have, if it wasn't for our little security friend standing right in my way...oh come back Phil I want to touch you again. Only joking!




This was when they sang *two steps behind* & how good do those bods look for guys in their mid 40's, not bad at all from where I was standing I can tell you. Thou I do think *Sav* needs to get a new hair style, still has the same 80's look going on! We all had a chuckle at the young guy behind us trying very hard to impress his girlfriend, saying things like.. Oh & thats Joe there, Phil has been with them for such & such a time, That's Viv, Sav this & Sav that, like he had this up close & personal friendship going on with the guys. It put a smile on my face, young love huh.


Ok pleased I could share our great night out, they still looked great & still sounded great so I was one happy little chickadee & Shannon hope you like the photos Hon!
