Thanks Sunny!


It's been a couple years since I hit a concert, so this should be great.

Traffic can be kind of a mess; I'd suggest going up a bit early. There are plenty of bars / restaurants nearby if you want to grab a bite to eat beforehand. Or hang out and have a drink or two in the parking lot. Other than that, its a well laid-out setup. Have fun.

Usually the worst part about traffic is trying to get out! The lots are a zoo after the shows. We usually try to park across the street from the facility and head down towards 49 when it's over.

The venue has pretty good sound. We saw Petty there a few years ago. For that show, we sat in the very last row of seats before the lawn begins. The only problem was the steady influx of lawn seating people climbing over the chairs in that row we were in to sneak down into the reserved seating area. Idiots! And the venue staff had no clue this was going on right under their noses.

Have a great time tonight! If your show is similar to the one we saw, you'll love every minute of it!

I thought Lady Gaga was at Verizon tonight? Maybe we will see a trio?

Yes, the wife corrected me, it's Sunday(tonight).

We will stay at one of the closer hotels for the night because we both want to have a few beers.
