In my line of work, concerts tend to be…get to the show at the last minute…or incredibly early…jump on stage and warm up the crowd/pass along announcements/or be totally ignored by the audience, then get shuffled off and out of the venue before the artists even start playing.
This year, we have had a bumper crop of great shows…ones that have been a treat to watch and enjoy! Plus with the great weather, the trips to the “sheds” has been *gasp* fun!

The always fun and talented Huey Lewis and The News at Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin.
My first time seeing Train at First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre. Pat Monahan really is a fantastic entertainer! (Okay…you were right, Andi K).
…Plus you never know when you’ll meet at real Mermaid (from South Bend, Indiana)!
