Last night Matt and I saw Elvis Costello and The Police at Great Woods (I’m just calling it Great Woods, because I can’t keep up with the ever-changing corporate names of these venues) and we had a lot of fun. Andy Summer seemed a little weird, though. Matt and I got the vibe that maybe he was mad at Sting for some reason. Elvis rocked well, as always, playing a mix of new and old.
It rained a little, but it always rains when we go to Great Woods, and I never shell out the dough to be seated under the pavilion. We watched Steely Dan during a torrential downpour a few years ago, and when Matt dragged me to a Rush concert, there was a thunderstorm. (I was also miserable because I had hives all over my legs!!)
Anyway, it took us an HOUR to get out of the parking lot. It was absolutely insane. We just sat in our car in the parking lot for a half hour because it was obvious we weren’t going anywhere. Then we slowly made our way out of the lot and on to 495. 495 was trafficky from the concert, too!!
Had a nice time though..I always enjoy seeing Elvis Costello and seeing The Police was a lot of fun. How does Sting still hit those high notes? I can barely sing that high!
I left feeling rather nostalgic after hearing music from my childhood!Filed under Music | Comment (1)
