Howard Jones and OMD

A long, long time ago in a land far, far away, (okay, really it was just February and it was right here in Lake Stevens), I talked about how James scored us some tickets to go see Howard Jones and OMD (you can read about it here). Last night was the night.  Thankfully, the park officials knew it was going to be mostly attended by… older… adults, and as such, the concert started at 6.  It’s funny, but James and I were commenting about how, if this were way back when, we would’ve had a “before” party, a “during” party, and an “after” party, quite possibly not calling it a night until 4 or 5 a.m.  It’s great to be a grown-up now, but it sure is fun to take a step back in time every now and again.  That being said, we were home just after 10, :D.  Here are scenes from my evening.

Howard Jones:  He was rockin’ the tight white trousers that were so popular in the ’80s.  The man can still sing.

OMD:  They rocked it as well.  Totally impressed.

There was lots of dancing (this man is gearing up to spin her around):

Lots of people:

Great food:

A young girl who was none too pleased about hanging out with a bunch of middle-aged rockers:

Even with an outside concert, there were fun stage effects:

And, finally, me… so very happy to be spending an evening with my honey and Howard Jones:

Are you loving the comeback of the great ’80s bands?  Do you enjoy outside venues for a concert setting?

    Yes, last year we went to see ‘human league’ . So much fun to see so many other old people having fun too! There were some youngsters there too, but unlike your girl they were singing along dancing and having fun😊😊

        I’m trying to renember who the support was for human league, they sang ‘harvest for the world’ is it the Christians? But I quite like barenaked ladies, too 😊 3 groups on one night is a big concert!

        It was the Christians who sang that, but I don’t think they were too big over here. I’ll have to look into that because I’m quite curious now. And you’re right, 3 groups is an amazing number!! 😀

      I know, it was very sad that you got rained on. But still, you saw Paul Simon! 😀 We actually got quite warm. I think rain will be far and few between now until after September… our 3 months have summer have begun. 😀 But yes, it was a great time!

        Of course , dancing to the music is part of it all 🙂
        It just stroke me as a bit odd , as over here we barely have space to dance , much less to sit at outdoor concerts or festivals 🙂

        Oh, good point, and you are so right! There was lots and lots of room to move around! But I think it was actually sold out! I believe they do that on purpose and sell only a specific number of tickets so people DO have the room to dance and move about if they want! Total win-win! 😀

    Outside if the weather is nice because I like to be able to dance. Indoors if the weather stinks. Then I just stand and dance in my confined space. So glad you two had a great date night out. 🙂

      Oh, it was such a great time! It was like going back in history! You definitely need to go see one sometime soonish! I forgot how fun they were! And no, we actually didn’t get too hot… it was a little muggy at first, but it was a beautiful day! 🙂
