Live fun!

Trust me when I tell you that I don't go to a lot of concerts or live sporting events. Given that, the next few months are filled with some very unusual things.

Tomorrow night, Tucker and I are doing to see Phantom of the Opera. Neither of us has seen it, although we are very familiar with the music, and we got the tickets back in December so it's been a long wait. We're making an evening of it, with dinner downtown and then the show, and I've got the songs on my iPod so we can sing as we drive.

Then in July, Tucker and I are going to see Idols on Tour, the American Idol show. Colette posted about getting tickets, and that same day I did the same thing -- thanks, Colette!

And saving the best for last, also in July, Tim and I will be about 5 rows back from the stage seeing STEVIE WONDER!!! (I get excited every time I think of it!) For years I've known there are only 3 acts that I really want to see in concert. They are
  • Aerosmith
  • Sting
  • Stevie Wonder
Unfortunately, they're all big name (big $$$) acts too, and I've never been able to bring myself to buy tickets. Well, guess I've gotten past that, because we'll be in row dd at Shoreline Ampitheater for the concert!!!

Time for a quick run, probably with Phantom as my soundtrack in preparation for tomorrow night.

Oh, and in case you think I've forgotten about my other son, he has some concerts in mind, but doesn't really dig the idea of going with his mom! :)

I'm glad I was able to remind you about the Idol show...what section will you be in??

What a fun summer!! You have very lucky kids my friend ;)

I was reading your comment appreciation posts and I put what Matt wrote on my blog (with his permission of course). Those words hit me in such a positive way too.

Isnt' that great about the school and veggies?! I think people are starting to realize what we've been talking about is good medicine ;)

Have a wonderful day!!

Ooohhh!!! Sounds like a great summer to me! I saw Phantom of the Opera many years ago, it is PHENOMENAL! Enjoy! Tell us all about it!

I've seen Aerosmith in concert, they are VERY good. But, I wasn't up close and personal. Being SO close is going to be LOADS of fun at Stevie Wonder's concert. How awesome!

I saw Phantom back when I lived in Boston in the late 90s. it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. My favorite though was Les Miserables! I have most of the music on my IPOD.

I saw the Police in 1985, my parents had said no, but I did not let that stop me! I saw the Police again in 2007. Sting I saw several years back and he puts on a great show.

I would love to see Aerosmith though! Enjoy!
