Wondering How To Describe The Show

_20140901_172110

Before I begin, I would like to personally thank KISS, Def Leppard, and opening act The Dead Daisies, for coming to our fair city and putting on a spectator kick ass show. If anyone has been to one of the concerts this 2014 tour, they understand what I am talking about fully. I would just like to take a moment and mention an observation. If I had to pick which band was “best” last night it would hands down be Def Leppard. (Gasp!) Def Leppard brought the sound, the music, the vocals, and the overall show when they performed. Personally, they rocked the fucking sold out pavilion like no bands I have seen perform there in the past, and I have seen many there.

But, as any diehard KISS fan will tell you, good show, bad show, so so average show, who the fuck cares because you just saw KISS perform live. So, personal sentiment aside, I saw KISS live for the 5th damn time in my life. As a bonus, there were three (3) generations of my family there to witness musical history being made. It was an absolute blast with my granddaughter up on one of my shoulders while she tried to dance and when I would put her down the music just took over and captivated her while she twirled and danced around.

In the end it was a great night for me and my wife, who is a diehard country music fan, and everyone just had a blast. I can’t ever ask for more than family time, they made it all worth it for me, and we will always have these spectacular memories that we all made together. By the time it was over, with my granddaughter draped in my arms, we all realized we we all exhausted, and I still had a 45 minute drive back to the house. Next concert for all if us will be ZZ Top, whenever they announce the dates to resume their tour.

The Time is Here To Rock & Roll All Night

The day is finally here, later in this day my wife and I will be heading off to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas. Why, you ask? We will be going to see KISS and Def Leppard while we rock and roll til the end of the night. Am I excited? Indeed! This will be my 5th time to see KISS live and 3rd time seeing Def Leppard live, but never together before. For the very first time it will be myself, my wife, my two daughters, my son, and my 3 y/o granddaughter. Never before have we ALL went to the same concert at the same time, for this I am very excited because my son, my wife, and my granddaughter are live KISS concert virgins. That’s all I really have to say for now, other than it will be raining still, probably, and its an outdoor venue. But! The show must go on! Don’t worry, I will tell y’all all about it in the next day or three.

Sunday………..Sunday………..Sunday

Is my wife a sneaky little fox? Yes, yes she is a sneaky little fox. Let me explain. As a follower of the band KISS I try to keep up with and when they ate touring over the years. In my 45 years I have already seen the band live in concert four times, once while in high school, once before children, and once a piece with each of my daughters. When I go see them Sunday, 31 August 2014, it will be my fifth time and I will have both of my daughters, my son, my wife, and my 3 y/o granddaughter. It will be my wife, my son, and my granddaughter’s very first time to experience KISS live in concert.

Now, let me explain how my wife was so damn sneaky. I heard about the concert announcement probably 2 weeks after it actually occurred, but my wife caught wind of it well before that. Now, I was focused on the cruise we were taking over the last week of August returning the first week of September to celebrate my middle daughter’s 18th birthday and as her graduation present from us. So when I heard the concert date I was more tthan just a little disappointed to say the very least. Little did I know that when you book a cruise so far out in advance that there is some flexibility for change. But, my wife knew and without me knowing she bumped our cruise date out a bit. She also secured six tickets to the concert behind my back. I found out about both when I opened my Father’s Day card from all of them while they all watched me with a shit eating grin on their faces. So, yea, now we all will be enjoying KISS & Def Leppard in concert and all enjoying the cruise together a few weeks later.

She got me, hell, they all got me pretty good. My wife has a few surprises left in her I see, I will have to start keeping a closer eye on her now. Am I happy? Of course, hell yea I’m happy, I will be even happier the end of August. Anyway, I’m sure I will do a little post after the concert and of course after we get back from the cruise, just be patient, the end of August isn’t that far away.
