Yesterday Was The Big Concert Day!
I had previously posted that my hubby got us tickets to the George Strait and Reba concert for Valentine's Day...well the concert was last night here in Wichita in our new Intrust Arena. We are not concert people and so we were a little bit nervous about the crowd, and the parking, and finding the location of our seats,...and if the weather was going to allow us to get there etc. But all our worries were in vain...and we did just fine. (Today it is raining ice...so I am thankful that was not the case last night).
We ordered the tickets online and we had no idea how to do that and we were nervous because it was a timed proceedure and the seats sell out quickly...but we managed to aquire two tickets. Little did we know they would be third row from the top in the nosebleed section! It was so steep climbing up that I actually got butterflies in my tummy. Ha! (I don't do well with heights) Thank goodness for the huge screens that showed us who was performing, because they looked one inch tall from where we sat! (:>)
We were soon caught up in the excitement and did enjoy every minute of it though...and we are glad that we got to go. My favorite song that George sang was: I Saw God Today. LeeAnn's: I Hope You Dance. Reba's: The Greatest Man I Never Knew.
When we bought the tickets we didn't even know that LeeAnn Womack was singing too, because it was just billed as George Strait and Reba...so that was an added bonus. All three are such good entertainers. Oh,...and Melissa Peterman from Reba's TV show (And The Singing Bee), made an appearance and she was quite funny. She and Reba make a good little comedy team. They goofed around while Reba sang the show's theme song: I'm A Survivor.
The show started at 7PM and went till about 11:30 and we got home about midnight. Quite a night out for this older couple...and I might add that it was way past my bedtime!
