This past weekend, even though I was fighting a sinus infection, Dan and I celebrated his birthday by attending one of the most epic concerts we've ever attended. And considering our concert list is pretty darn short, it doesn't take a lot for it to be epic.
We have seen Def Leppard twice before. Once where we both attended the same concert but not together because we weren't even dating yet, and again after we were married when the group was doing concerts in the round and we were on the floor and SOOOOOO close. So this was our third time seeing them and I'm pretty sure it had been a good twenty-plus years since we last saw them.
And dude, they got old. But they're still great.
We got old too...
We had great seats, in the front row of one of the side sections.
First up was Tesla. I know "Signs." That's it. And here they are singing it.
Second act was Foreigner. I knew a lot of their songs but mostly because who doesn't know "I Want to Know What Love Is"? Or "Head Games"? Everyone listened to that at middle school track meets, right?
And then it was time for the main act...
I sort of loved Hysteria not because it's their best song (because Pour Some Sugar On Me) but because they showed a bunch of old clips/pictures of the band from their huge days. Made me all nostalgic.
It was a good four hours of music and worth losing my voice (although hey, sinus infection) and standing and dancing for two hours. Not to mention the first concert I've seen with just my husband in twenty plus years...
