Colleen, one of the co-leaders of Sun's Boston Women's network, and I had a great 'girl's nite out' last evening!!
We sat stage-side in the 2nd row(!!) for the Rod Stewart 'concert in the round.' Colleen took this picture with her Treo, which has no zoom capabily, so yes, we really were this close to a true rock icon.
Here's what the one big thing that I noticed that was different from the last time I went to one of his concerts back in the early 90s:
People all around me had their cellphones on and were using them for all sorts of things!
A few people were talking on their phones, letting their friends outside of the concert listen in live.
The young woman sitting 2 seats down from me was creating an MP3 file of the live show to listen to later and almost everyone was taking pictures with their cell phones.
The woman in front of me was creating video files on her cell phone. I'm sure that they will end up on YouTube sometime today!
(I remember, not so long ago, when cameras were banned from these types of events)
But I do have to report, as a longtime Rod Stewart fan who enjoyed participating in what felt like a huge 'sing-a-long' concert last evening, this man and his performance are "Still the Same."
(I know you're wondering, so here' the answer - Yes! He sang all of his hits from Tonite's the Night, Maggie May, Hot Legs (my favorite!) , Do You Think I'm Sexy, etc., etc., etc.)
