I had two goals for the night...
Make sure Jason wasn't tortured and to hear at least one of my favorite songs.
Both goals were brilliantly exceeded.
A quick pre-show dinner at Pei Wei. Spicy goodness.
Lovey, love, love the self portrait feature on the iPhone 4. How cute are we walking into the venue?
Our seats were better than decent. They played a beautiful combination of songs from the new album, some crowd favorites, a few obscure treasures and covers. I only heard one of my five that I was hoping for, but I have spent the last few weeks studying the setlists and figuring out my statistical odds of hearing each one. That's the problem when a band has so many great songs. There is not enough time in the world to play them all. Especially since many of the songs turned into 13 minute jam sessions.
The best part, Jason wasn't tortured. In fact about two songs in, he was completely won over. He marveled at the crazy musical skills of each person on stage. How could he not? It is insanity.
I have a feeling that my husband has a new boyfriend.
Somehow I will have to survive 2011 without them as they take a much needed break.
See you in 2012, my love.
