Blue Skies and Bluer Language

IMG_2820[1]I was really apprehensive about our plans for last night. The forecast called for rain off and on all evening with some thunderstorms and a bit of wind. Not good if you have lawn seats for a concert.

I am so happy to say that the weather people were less than accurate once again. Yay! It did drizzle a bit for a while but not enough to require an umbrella. Mostly the evening was warm and sticky but relatively dry and we saw Nickelback put on a great show.

There were pyrotechnics and they made great use of the video screen and happily they sounded great. The only thing that bothered me was some of the chatter between songs. I'm not exactly a prude and I've seen, heard and done a lot but Chad Kroeger went on and on about sex and drugs. This was even after he noted a little blonde girl sitting on her parents shoulders and how her parents would have a bit of explaining to do after the show. I will grant you that small kids don't really belong at a show like this but the banter was kind of gratuitous. Does that make me sound old. I hope not. All I will say is this - I've seen many bands and they've put on excellent shows without the nonsense. End of rant.

At least we stayed dry.

I'm glad you enjoyed the show. Even Jimmy Buffett keeps it clean, it seems like they could, too.
