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:
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?
