    Default Reminiscing

    It's been one year today since i got to see the guys in concert for the first time in Tulsa, OK. They say you never forget your firsts and this was one first that will stay with me forever. I went with ILAA and got lucky with a front row seat. I loved every moment of that concert and I even lost my voice for nearly a week after. There is so much excitement and emotion when you hear those first familiar chords of How Long and then the lights come on and there they are right in front of you. I remember being so awe struck and was so surprised when I had tears in my eyes when those lights came on. I'll also never forget throwing roses on stage and seeing Glenn pick them up and dance to center stage. Priceless. It was such a wonderful night. After looking back on that day, i can't wait till the guys start touring again and even though my first Eagles concert experience is one year old today the excitement of being at an Eagles concert never gets old.

    My pics from the first Tulsa concert didn't turn out too good but I thought i'd post the few that were decent.










    And how can i forget seeing these lifesize cutouts for the first time. I still wish I could've taken those home with me.

    Thanks for sharing that, Peek! I think we all understand that emotion and reading your story brings it all back for me, too.

    Thanks for reminding us Peek! Great pics, too!

    Are you sure you don't have those cutouts? I remember looking for them at the show I saw in St. Louis a week or so later and they were no where to be found!

    Awww Peek, now you're going to help us all remember the concerts we went to last fall! Mine was Sept. 24th in Chicago, and although it was a wonderful concert and I got to meet Soda, Willie and Maleah, I actually enjoyed the view better at my second concert this past March, where I had 2nd row seats. It is absolutely a surreal feeling when those lights come up and there they are, right in front of you!

    No Willie, you should be feeling the warm fuzzies, not melancholy!

    I actually feel both! I get so happy and excited when I remember those concerts and how I felt every time those lights first went up, especially the Cincinnati concert, when I could look right into Timmy's eyes. But then I remember I will probably never get the chance to do it again and it saddens me.

    As I've said before, I never thought I'd get to see them once - let alone twice. I'm not sad. Next year when we have Borderes going to concerts and posting reviews I might be wistful...but at the Eagles' prices I can afford to be wistful!

    That's one of the many great things about The Border, we can all reminisce together.

    Nobody was supposed to know about that. I guess the cat's outta the bag . I've got them all perfectly set up in my bedroom . It was a b*tch sneaking them past those security guards. If they had caught me, i would've been thrown in jail for theft the Eagles. It's just a shame it wasn't the real thing though. Now that would totally be worth going to jail.
