Tina Turner Concert in Chicago
Well this is an entry that you wont see very often.. since it is my private life.
But i have to share it with you guys out there.
I recently went to the second concert that i have ever been too.. which happens to be Tina Turners last tour of all time.
I thought it was significant enough to write about since i haven't written anything in quite awhile.
Well a friend and i went to this concert after finding tickets on craigslist for pretty much the front row for about $60 bucks. Wow what a deal that was.. i thought. Well turned out to be a bad one when i couldn't get the tickets forwarded to me from the ticket master until like 8pm when the concert started at 7:30pm.
Well Tina Turner was worth all the trouble. Once we got there only 4 songs had been sung already and it turned out to be a fantastic show and it was simply amazing. Wow does that women got energy for being 68 years old .. and she sounds just like she did when she was younger.
Fuck i was having a blast. I danced my ass off and sung along with her only to see her get on a crane platform that swung out above the audience like 5 feet away from me. This was a close up of Tina and she winked at me..(Wow!!)it was probably cuz i had my shirt off and was sweaty as hell dancing my ass off to her songs.
It was funny but at the intermission when i went to go to the bathroom and also get a few hot dogs... i kept getting stopped by many people.. asking me if i was just up on stage.. lol.. funny as hell but i knew it was people that recognized me and just wanted to say hi.
I wasn't prepared for that.. since the ticket thing got me in such a rush.. i had no time to groom myself or make myself presentable..(unshaven & looking rough). oh well.. i didn't care i was going to see Tina Turner and didn't care what i looked like at that point .. i just wanted to get to the concert already.
It was a great concert and i had a blast.. it was fun to do since i hadn't done anything for myself in a long long while other besides work.. and trying to make money to pay my bills.
Here are a few pics of the concert...and there is one of me unshaven and with my friend having a good time. notice the lady behind me trying to be in picture too.. she was a riot.. i gave her energy from me dancing so much she got into it too..
anyone that wants to see some vids of the concert along with the blurry pics.. goto
most of the pics were blurry cuz i was dancing and my camera was kinda messing up.. so..
