Friday i happened to mention to Gary that "i guess i won't be going to see STYX tomorrow" and he asked me why. I said i never won tickets. He laughed and said we should go see them-so we looked online on the Billy Bob's website, but all they had were obstructed view. Sat we decided that we would just go out there and get general admission and take our chances. Well, we get there and Gary gets a call from my brother and while he is on the phone a woman walking through the parking lot asked if we had tickets-i said "not yet" She had 3-she had to sell-bought them for her daughter and 2 friends and didn't have parental consent so billy bob's wouldn't let them in-she sold me all 3 for $20. i told her we only needed 2, but she gave them all to me-these were $28 tickets-i felt bad, but nothing she could do-called a few people to see if they could come-but no luck. We had a drink-listened to the band that was playing-then headed into the showroom around 10-concert started at 10:30. (and yes, i know my picture has bug eyes as usual-this is why i hate having my picture taken) I hadn't seen STYX since High School and was looking forward to it-loved them back then-still do~Tommy Shaw still looks the same-none of us has aged a bit :) They came out and it was GREAT! Gary had never seen them so he was looking forward to the concert. Of course, we had the obligitory ONE guy who was 10 ft tall at the table ahead of us-and he wore his cowboy hat while he stood-the man behind us said "he's the obstructed view!" If only he were the only "problem" NO. We then had to get the obligitory obnoxious couple(s) next to us-who came late of course and were already drunk. The man who had to hang on the girlfriend-kissy kissy and such-she finally passed out with her head on the table. So then he had to sing and dance for the other girl that was with them-her companion (husband?) didn't look like he enjoyed much of the evening. This guy was a major obstructed view-thought he was there to entertain us all. I told gary at least we knew he wasn't getting any that night-and maybe she would puke in his car too~ :)
But the music was Great! Played some of my favorite stuff-so i was happy!
