    Bob was absolutely fantastic! He's 74 and still going strong!

    He played for over 2 hours and did every song I wanted to hear, was very engaging with the audience and there was no mention of sitting down during the whole show or any mention of cameras or cell phones! Everyone stood nearly the entire time and many cell phones were taking pictures and recording!

    I really can't say enough about how great it was. He has a huge band with many of them being award winners, 3 back up singers, horn section of 4, piano, organ, and guitarists, some of which have been with him since the beginning. The sax player, Alto Reed, is in a class of his own!

    A surprise was when he dedicated Forever Young, by Bob Dylan and one of my favorite songs, to Glenn and other artists we lost in the past few years. I recorded it and it nearly brought me to tears as near the end Glenn's pictures were on the big screens behind him. The last one was of Glenn and Bob together. It was such a moving moment. If you're my friend on Fb, you can watch the video and see all my pics (which aren't great, but I did my best!)

    Also, Bob introduced his band at one point and Laura Creamer was one of the back up singers. Didn't she have a connection with Glenn too? Bob said she was one of the best high singers he'd ever heard.

    And as has been reported, Wild Mountain Thyme was playing as we left the arena.

    Bob says this is his last tour (I know we've heard that before from many bands!) so if you get the chance, go, he's awesome! He has 10 or 12 shows yet across the country!

    Back when I had hope for music events later this year, I was excited to find out that Styx and REO Speedwagon were going to play the Utah State Fair. I had already seen REO about ten or eleven years before, but this would've been my first time seeing Styx. Now I had no intention of being in the audience, as the tickets are outrageously overpriced (they were like 300 dollars for nosebleed seats!). But like last year when I "saw" Foreigner there, I was actually behind the fairgrounds at this little park. It was still fun, because the band was so loud that even not being in the venue, i could still hear every song crystal clear.

    Being from Sacramento, I got spoiled with Cal Expo (California's state fair grounds). The concert stage would have a proper seating area right up front, called the Golden1 seating area, where you pay a small ticket price (anywhere from 10 to 50 dollars depending on the artist), but most importantly they had a grassy hill sloping back from the main stage. and that's where me and my family used to sit when we'd see a concert there. The grassy area and the surrounding walkways and seating areas were so popular, that Cal Expo promotes the concerts as "free" because they don't shoo anybody away, unless you're trying to get into the Golden1 seating area and you don't have a ticket. So I was super spoiled with California, but getting to hear them is better than nothing.

    Sorry, for the rant and rambling, I'm just bummed about not seeing them. Hopefully, they try to come back next year.
