The BEST night ever!!!

I am tired. I am sore. My voice is hoarse. We waited 2 1/2 hours outside the Bank Atlantic Center before the building was cleared of a bomb threat because some cowardly idiot felt he/she had to TRY and ruin every one's night. I'm happy to report that he/she did not succeed!!! Not even close. The stadium was sold out. There was not one empty seat in the house. This was just a frustrating inconvenience followed by the best night EVER!!!

I got to see BON JOVI in concert last night!!!! Whoohoo! Yippee!

My DH and I had floor seats and they were on the end so I got to see my men pretty well and I wouldn't want anything less. This was my third Bon Jovi concert and the best one yet!!! Jon, Richie and the boys just keep getting better with age. Sexier, more energetic and hotter than I can ever remember (even as a 7th grader!). Yes, I have followed this band and been a huge fan since Junior High. It's my biggest obsession... I just cannot get enough of them!

I got a few decent photos (thanks to my DH, who also brought me a pair of binoculars) with my little point and shoot digital camera. Funny enough, my camera was so slow at times that someone from the event staff actually came up to me and said, "That's not a video, is it?" No, it's just a very slow camera!

I had so much fun!!! I can't remember the last time that I had such a blast. I was a complete lunatic! I was yelling and screaming and jumping around and swinging my head and raising my arms. Whoa! It felt good :-) Afterwards I was completely giddy. I still am I guess. BON JOVI ROCKS!!!

What can I say? I love these guys!!! Oh, and did I mention that Chris Daughtry from American Idol fame opened up for them??? He was awesome! At one point, he got to come back and sing with Jon on stage. Wow!

I cannot wait till the next concert and maybe then I will splurge for a VIP pass. Sorry, honey, but I have to do this! LOL!!!

V - How cool! LOVE the pictures! I saw Bon Jovi for the first time at the end of March and you are right -- they are AMAZING. I am pretty sure it's the best concert I've ever attended. So the funny thing is, ever since the concert, my 4-year-old daughter gets in the car with me each morning and says, "Mommy, can we listen to some Bon Jovi?" (she did not go to the concert but was facinated by the fact that I did). I think she might be one of their youngest fans!

Wow, it sounds awesome. I would have loved to see Daughtry. Maybe, I'll splurge with you next year and get VIP passes. You know how star strucked I get:0)
