Free Concert?, umm . . . yes please

A few years ago, before they were very well known, I had the chance to see Lady Antebellum at the State Fair. It was only six bucks, and I’m pretty sure I was the only person there who owned their cd and knew enough words to sing along. And I loved it so much. I became a fan.

I missed their next Phoenix show, but when I heard they were playing again I really wanted to go. I checked tickets when I finally found out where the venue was and to my chagrin, tickets were selling for $140. For bad seats. A lot ridiculous, and a lot out of Brad and Brea’s newlywed budget. I was talking to Christin about this dilemma and she lets me know that a counselor in her ward is a big deal there. And the next day she calls to tell me there are two tickets in my name in will call!!!!!
Turns out they were really nice seats. Really nice. With free food!!! It was the first concert ever in the new arena so the sound system was awesome and it was an incredible, incredible show. And Brea almost peed herself she got so excited when the piano rose out of the floor with ….. standing on it. Geez I have a cool sister. The only thing that could have made it better was if she was there. Maybe next year.

Look at these seats!!

Geez that beard is gross.

Our tasting station.

I know, we're adorable.

The back of Vanie's head. And the red piano.

Just such a good concert.

Looks like excellent seats and I would have loved being there for this one. What came up on the piano? I guess that went over my head. And yes, you have the coolest sister(s) ever.

I'll tell him about the piano:0)

Here's to using not-so-well-established connections!
I'm glad it was so awesome.

Did you ever send that thank you note?

RC said...

you're not expecting YOUR brother to actually SEND a thankyou note are you? At least not this year.

I agree with the beard comment.
