Hi Guys, I know today was supposed to be Paint Perfect class 3, but due to some awesomely unforseen circumstances I am now moving that post to tomorrow (Saturday). I know my blog is called In the Fun Lane, but after last night I feel like it should be called life as Penny Lane. I had a totally "Almost Famous" moment thanks to my sister and her friend Harris.
If you are Canadian then you probably know Dallas Green (City & Color) and his music. If you don't know it or are from the Southern half of North America then you need to check it out, it will change your world. The last 2 nights he played 2 sold out shows here in Edmonton and I was lucky enough to go last night and get the ultimate VIP treatment all courtesy of my sis!!!!
Before the show we had the whole concert hall to romp around and take silly photos in. Or so I thought, that man in the background must have wondered who the heck we were and what we were doing!
Before show time we were welcomed with open arms by the whole crew, even invited to just relax in the tour bus while the opening act set up.
While everyone was taking their seats we were backstage with the band while they finished their dinner and Torri caught up with her friends. But I just had to snap this awesome picture of the stage getting prepped for show time!
Torri's friends were super sweet to get us prime seats in the audience, but come show time I was super duper overwhelmed to learn that they invited us to simply pull up chairs on stage left and watch from only feet away!!!
How cool is it that you can literally see the sound waves on Dallas's guitar here?? Just beautiful. They opened with one of my favorite songs (Coming Home!!) and that pretty much set the tone for my amazing night.
Still cannot believe how amazing the whole show was! Specially because one of my favorite songs was not on the set list but somehow was performed~
Torri and Harris, goofing around, all while I sang my little heart out along with Dallas!
I think the crowd was just as thrilled with the show as I was, but I will definitely never forget it!
Today I am taking cupcakes down to everyone on their day off just to thank them for my amazing night, hence the move of paint perfect (SORRY!).
Any other lucky Edmontonians catch the show???
