Wow, what a great day! First a rockin Cubs game in the afternoon and then an even more rockin concert!
To those of you who reported Neil being subdued during the tour, I'm happy to report he has woken up. Those two were having a great time on stage and it was such a treat to see. Other than a couple of times that Neil lost his voice (it didn't crack or anything, it just didn't happen at all), the guys sounded awesome. And I'm happy to report they looked pretty fantastic too!
Sue has the full song selection so I'll let her post it, but it was heavy on Split Enz faves, which was great fun. I'm also glad that they played Part of Me Part of You, which is so far my fave off the new album. I am just simply in awe of the talent Neil and Tim possess. They are amazing. Elroy was on stage as well, as cute as a bug with a haircut matching his dad's (awwwww) Sharon's birdcage-like chandeliers were lovely.
I will have tons of pictures soon, and will post a link. To those going to the Friday Vic show, they were being absolutely fanatic about searching bags. We were allowed disposable cameras, but no digital and no 35mm. Mine is digital but luckily I have an extra secret pocket in my bookbag, so I snuck it in. Julie was not so lucky, and the security women were very nasty. Just FYI. I got some great shots and even a little movie or two. I want to thank the gentleman standing between Sue and I who is a professional photographer. Not only did he put up with Sue and I leaning over him to talk (she wanted to be close to Tim and I wanted to be close to Neil) but he also reconfigured the settings on my camera and took a bunch of great shots for me. How awesome is that? Unfortunately, when I turned to get his name and thank him after the show, I couldn't find him. I even waited out front but didn't see him. So if anyone knows who he is, or if the mystery photographer guy reads this post: THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU ROCK!
Speaking of great Frenz, it was such a pleasure to meet and hang out with all the lovely folks at the show. I really had a blast in all my geeky fan glory. Sue, Nick, Cynthia, Julie, Dale, Jamie, Jeff, Michelle, so many who's names are now escaping me or I didn't hear: it was awesome to meet you! I had such a marvelous time and I can't wait for tomorrow!
