So for Manda's birthday last May I couldn't think of anything to get her, so I happened upon a Ticketmaster junk-mail and there it was! My present! A ticket to the upcoming, and now past, Keith Urban - Escape Together World Tour. Perfect, I said to myself. And a second ticket for myself while I'm at it! Not the cheapest concert in the world, but WELL worth it! We just love going to concerts, but don't splurge on them nearly enough.
So last night, my preggo sister and I headed off to the Tacome Dome...in stinky Tacoma. After a treak up a hill from cheaper $10 parking, we arrived and the tidal wave of excitement passed over us. There is just something about a big crowd and live music! And well, a cute guitar toting Aussie just adds to the wow facor. We upgraded/downgraded ourselves to the makeshift back row, where the cushioned chairs sat (only 3 rows behind our bleacher seats) and settled in for a sweet set list. Keith always does a bang-up job in chosing his songs. A good mix of the new and the old to keep us guessing. Then he sticks in these awesome guitar solos and makes his way through the crowd to play amongst the fans.
Needless to say the concert was REALLY good. It was the second time we've seen him and he didn't let us down. Fortunately I have a pretty decent point-and-shoot camera with a great zoom and video capabilities, so I got some great pics. from the back row! I will definately be seeing him again.
