Muse: The Resistance Tour

**Updated with new pictures Cami took.  You'll get a good idea how close we ended up.

Sigh.........Smile..........Greatest night ever.

A few rules I learned while seeing the most awesome band perform live (and a mere 10 feet from where I stood):

1.  There is no such thing as personal space. At all. 

2.  It is possible to be so excited that you very nearly pee your pants (allegedly).
(Cami took this of the whole band.  It was just awesome.  Am I repeating myself?)
3.  And then hyperventillate.  (We'll blame that one on the over heated-ness due to rule 1.)

4.  The mosh pit is a must.  Whether you want to or not. 

5.  Where ever you are sitting before the show starts, you will inevitably move 5 feet closer to the stage once the show starts.

(Another one of Cami's photos-That guy on stage is Chris W.  the bass guitarist/backup vocals.  We were so close!)

6.  There is no other place to be than on the floor. 

Seriously.  This was the best night ever.  Thanks Cami for sharing it with me!!!!

Oh-and I was very happy to see this guitar made familiar to me by their H.A.R.R.P. dvd.  Something about the red guitar with glittary stripes....:)

So, now I have a couple of questions for you. What's the best concert you've been to?  Have you seen your dream band/singer live?

Angie - glad you had a great time! Sounds like a fun birthday. My favorite concert so far has been Michael Buble. (Thankfully my parents bought me a ticket or I wouldn't have been there.)

glad it lived up to your expectations!

I saw Arcade Fire a couple of years ago. Amazing. They're my fave. When they tour again, we're taking the kids and following them for a couple of shows!

We also saw Smashing Pumpkins which would have been my dream concert in... 1994. ;)

Ben Folds.... I did indeed see him and I do indeed love him. Both times I have seen him it was heaven. :)

I like muse. I've only ever been to a SmashMouth concert because it was at the Olympics. Other than that, I've never been to a concert.

I don't know how you ever married an accountant, I am so dull compared to you.

sadly, I have never been to a concert! The one time I wanted to go, my sisters told me i couldn't buy a ticket with them, because they would get bad seats...no bitterness here! I'm glad you had fun!

I'm just here to second your post.
You know the best concert experience i've had...LAST NIGHT!

Accountants keep you grounded. :)

Matthew Bellamy wishes he could shake his hips like mine. He has half the dance moves I do.

Sounds fun! My friend had tickets to the concert, but her seats had been double sold and so she did not get to see the concert. Needless to say, she was heartbroken.

I have never been to a huge concert like that. I saw Josh Turner which was FANTASTIC!!!
