I left work yesterday, picked up my youngest daughter, and headed back to Spokane, which is about 2 hours from my house. We went to see Cheap Trick, Heart, and Journey. What a great night! I had forgotten how much I loved Cheap Trick. Robin Zander's voice is still outstanding and they played all their hits, including the Flame, I Want you to Want Me, Surrender, the Dream Police, and I had forgotten that they sang the theme song to That 70' Show (Hangin' out, down the street, the same old thing, we did last week.......) and the ending song on the movie Joe Dirt (If you want my love, you got it......).

Next came Heart, and I have to say, these two sisters are so amazing. Ann Wilson's voice is so powerful, yet so rich, that I found myself moved to either tears, goosebumps, or both, while she was singing. Nancy still rocked the guitar and is so stunningly beautiful that I had myself convinced to cut my hair and even get (gasp) some bangs by the middle of the evening. Those thoughts have since passed but I am so honored to have had the opportunity to see these rock legends at least twice, and this time, to let my daughter experience these powerful and talented women first hand. Needless to say, they brought the house down.

If you haven't heard Journey's new lead singer, I encourage you to do so. I am a purist when it comes to my music and usually poopoo any new singer, but this little dude is not only about the cutest thing I've ever seen, he sounds just like Steve Perry. I enjoyed every song like it was the original.

So I'm at work after 2.5 hours of sleep (decided to drink some energy drinks on the way home and paid the price), bleary eyed, still sporting some smeared mascara from last night, and my ears still ringing from the music, but a smile on my face, and Heart blaring away from my computer speakers.

Feels almost like the 80's. Almost. And no Phitzy, I didn't revive the mall bangs for the concert, but thanks for asking.

I envy you - Yes, I did see the new lead singer from Journey (not live though) on CBS Sunday Morning show. He is awesome. Heart is one of my favorite bands too. You are so lucky. Next time, give me a call. (LOL)
Glad you had a great time.

Did Heart perform "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You"?

that's my favorite Heart song even though i read somewhere it wasn't their favorite.

They didn't. I remember Barracuda, These Dreams, a couple of songs off Ann's solo album, Crazy on You, Never, Alone (which they did acoustically and it was incredible), Straight On, and of course, my favorite, Magic Man. I can't remember the rest. They only played for an hour.

Lodi, since I always miss birthdays, I'm saying Happy, Happy early so I won't miss your's. Anyway, I always have birthday weeks not days, I deserve it and I'll bet you do too.

Meant to also say glad you had a great night Lodi. I spent the weekend at Rhythm & Roots music festival in East Tennessee and heard a group Bombadil. Four great young men who are absolutely one of the best new groups I've heard. Not everyone's cup of tea but they everything from folk to rock (Beatle style). Are from Durham, N.C. so Revdodd probably is familiar with them. Check them out if you get a chance, they will be playing from Nashville to New York in the next couple of months and are worth your time. HIGH energy!! Stomp your feet, head banger music.

Did Ann do Immigrant Song? It is absolutely amazing.

I think I posted this before but here it is again-

the video isn't so great but you can hear the song.

Here is a link to check out the new lead singer of Journey. He is amazing.

I read somewhere that Journey found him on youtube, where he and his band were covering Journey songs. Maybe I'll start putting up my own videos and wait to be "discovered."

Back in '86, Cheap Trick was playing in Santa Barbara with John Waite as their opening act. After the show my friend and I went to Cheap Trick's tour bus and knocked on the door. The drummer opened the door and said, "Can I help you?" I said, "We're going to the liquor store. You guys want anything?" He said "Yeah, how about some Michelob?" So that was our ticket onto the bus! They were all very nice and funny. They got a huge kick out of playing the video of Joe Theisman breaking his leg. Remember that? They played it over and over on a loop. Hilarious. They also said they loved my name and that I should meet Donnie Iris, who had a song called "Leah". They gave me a bunch of guitar picks with their band logo on it, and I gave all of them except one to my teenage sister and her friends. Wow. I am soo missing the 80s right now.

They were chucking out guitar picks with their name on it by the handfuls. We didn't get one because I didn't care and I wasn't letting my 11 year old go clammering about for a guitar pick that would be lost in her room forever.

That being said, I still have the CD signed by Bryan Adams, along with our picture with him, and the pick his lead guitarist handed to my other daughter, when she was about the same age.

I'm a concert junkie. There. I've said it. But as I get older, I find myself saying things like "gosh, those tickets are so expensive" and "gee, I don't know....its a work night." Sure signs of something, but I've forgotten what.

Hey Lodi.. I hear that... but only if my hearing aid is turned up lol... my name is Lisa, and I'm a concertoholic

5 friends and myself just tried to buy 6 tix to ac/dc .. they are allowing only 4 per household!! By the time we got the 4 and went back for the other 2, it was sold out..we are going to have to draw canes (we can't see the straws anymore he he)

Every concert I've ever bought tix for had an 8 ticket limit.. now there's 4??? WTH is that all about? not a happy camper
