we were among the first few buses to arrive, but it was already pretty crowded at the entrance.
after picking up some burgers and fries from one of the concession stands, we made our way to our seats. because of the last-minute-ness of this outing, we'd had to take what we could get and that meant spots in the bench seats instead of the more spacious boxes we've become accustomed to. beggars can't be choosers, and all that. still, we had a pretty good view from where we were.
i'm also pretty amused that i've now worn the same t-shirt to all three duran duran concerts i've attended.
our opening act for the evening was kelis - you know, of "milkshake" fame. she was entertaining, and i guess the connection is that she did a song with the band on one of their albums.
after the band made their grand entrance and got through a couple of songs, this flashed on the monitors:
they looked and sounded as amazing as ever, performing a nice mix of old and new music.
nile rodgers came out for one song.
