Here's a better picture of the creepy Living Statue thing.
By now it's starting to get dark and getting closer to when we need to go stake out our place in line to get into the show, because even though we had tickets, the place only held 1000 people. I wish I would have had the guts to cross the street and take a picture of the hoards of lesbians waiting to get into this concert. Honestly, there were about 50 straight women, 5 guys(3gay), and the rest were lesbian's. I can't say it shocked me, because the turnout was the same when we saw her play in Tampa last year. Anyway, here's some stuff from the concert. To get an idea where we were, there wee two levels and the upper level hung over the stage on the sides. We were on the upper level on the side, about 20 feet away. She looked at the upper level more than the pit in front, it was amazing to make eye contact with someone your such a big fan of. Sonja almost peed her pants. :)
Apparently, if your video is over three minutes long, you can't post it, I practically have the entire concert on video, so here's the only two videos I have that are under three minutes.
We left to head home after the concert around 1 am, we made it into Florida and around 6am we had to stop because we couldn't stay awake any longer. Even almost hitting a raccoon doing 95MPH didn't keep us awake. So we pulled into a rest stop and napped for an hour. When we woke up we wanted to make it back into town for breakfast at our favorite restaurant before we passed out, so in kind of a hurry, Sonj wasn't watching her speed, and we definitely didn't see the trooper radaring up ahead. So 281 dollar speeding ticket later, were back on the road. We made it home in time for brunch, then got a two hour nap in before work. It was an amazing trip, and I cant wait to go back. I loved the city, all the people there were so kind and courteous. We wanted to go back for the Gulf Aid Relief concert that Ani is playing in, but money and work got in the way. Maybe next time.
