October 27, 2013

Four concerts four days in a row, tiring weekend but worth it!

Southwest $273
#239 Las Vegas 11:05am to Houston 4pm

Dinner with Kim and Tim, who I hadn't seen in probably 4 years.

Luckily made it to the front row again.

Yep, Michael gets close with the crowd!
For this show Michael pulled up two separate couples- but he did specifically call me out for the portion where you are supposed to hug who you came with. Since he saw me there by myself he said, "Hey, this guy in the front row comes to a lot of our shows. Show him some love." And several people around me hugged me at once.

So I had briefly met Jay's girlfriend Sharon back stage in Austin. For this show she was standing on stage beside him, and when we made eye contact I waved at her and she recognized me. A few songs later she came out to stand beside me, saying she has never watched a show from the front. So I took it upon myself to protect her while she was out there.

So when Jay called Sharon to come back to the stage I motioned "like hey, what about me?" And he said to come on back. So I caught up with Sharon and follwed her back stage and then onto the stage for the final song! WAY awesome!

At several points in this video you can see me on the far side of the stage! Particularly at 3;20 and 4:00 points.

Actually this one is even better- at 1:20 you see jay motion to Sharon to come up, then at 1:35 he does so for me.
At 2:57 sharon gets up there, then you see me at 3:06, and again at 3:48.

Back stage with Carl! I took off right after this, as I had to work the next day and didn't get home until 2 or 3am.
