The venue where this concert was is an ice arena where they hold other events. And we had fantastic seats. We sat in the first row of seating that was off of the floor and I think we had better viewing because we didn't have to worry about the people in front of us.
For some reason, my phone makes things look much further away than they actually are.
Anyway, we were given 'glow sticks' when we first sat down and it was really cool to look across the arena and see everyone waving the lighted sticks:
Once again, I took sucky pictures with my phone. I really don't know how to take good pics at a concert. And then K told me to just take a pic of the Jumbotron and I got this fairly okay one:
It is hard to imagine he will be 70 on his next birthday. He still is a very good performer. The only problem is that whatever plastic surgery he has had makes him look like a caricature of himself, but other than that, he is not much different than he has always been. He always was, and always will be, an entertainer--something that all performers cannot aspire to.
Of course, he sang 'Copacabana.'
I'm happy we decided to go. It just goes to show that you need to take a chance once in a while. This is the second time I went to a performance that I wasn't especially excited about--the other one was to see 'Wicked'--and found myself having a great time. I hope this is a good sign, because I have been 'coerced' into seeing 'Mamma Mia!' in August--and I most definitely am NOT an ABBA fan. ;)
