Oh the stories to tell! ha!
We got down to southern Indiana around 6pm and then took a cab over to the casino.
As soon as we got there we decided to have dinner at the buffet (blech by the way!)
BUT, as we sat there eating, in walks Tyler and Kevin from the Barenaked Ladies. WAIT.. they are seated 1 table away from us!!! My face lit up like a little kid a Christmas. Kevin smiled and said 'Hey' and gave a little wave. Yes, I did ask for a photo and they said they needed to eat quick. Understood. SUPER nice guys though.
So we head outside to the concert. Ok, it's 95 FLIPPIN' degrees with 100% humidity. The kind of day where you stand still and sweat your tush off. Not very fun.
We gather our beers and head to our seats. This TINY outdoor 'arena' wasn't even 1/2 full. WHAT??? I was shocked. The other times I have seen them they were in HUGE arenas and sold out. This wasn't really advertised by anyone but the Casino. We just lucked into finding it on Tickemaster 2 weeks ago and got amazing seats. I'm still stunned by that!
One friend REALLY wanted to go and is a HUGE BNL fan, so we took her photo with us. Marci had a GREAT time at the show! lol.
Here's Marci waiting for the show to start. (She's the only one not sweating!)
Here's Marci enjoying a nice cold beer at the show."Hey Marci, down in front!"Love this picture of the whole band. (click on it to make it larger)Steve was hamming it for the photographers in this one corner. He spent a lot of time singing over there. He looked great. I almost didn't recognize him on stage.
Ed... always a hottie, jamming out!
If you have ever seen these guys in concert, they are HILARIOUS! They have this dance routine they have been doing at other shows, I was hoping they would do it here. They did. Cracked me up!
Ahhhh... in the cold casino having a few beers! CHEERS!
Oh, and while we were sitting at the bar, Tyler and his wife came in. They walked right past me and I smiled and said "Thank you for an awesome show!". He was super kind and said "you are so welcome and thank you!"
Seriously good time! CAN NOT believe I actually 'met' 2 of the guys.
On another funny note for anyone here in Indiana, we also saw Jarrod from the Subway commercials and the City Prosecutor Carl Brizzi there. Who knew?!
Now I need to go take a nap!
