    That looks like a hell of a show to play. Very cool.

    My first show of the summer is in 13 days at my old High School. I can't wait.
     
  6. Dude.... maybe they just caught you at a bad moment, but everyone else is looking at the crowd, having fun, and you're staring at your neck with a look on your face that says "I hope none of my friends recognize me..."

    Always hate when I get caught looking at my fingers.... I think I'm watching the audience most of the time, but you have to wonder sometimes..... :mad:

    Yes, I was shot at a bad moment. It's my wife who took the pics.

    In addition, my UHF receiver fell down just before the show, so my movements were limited, and at last I did not have much place to move. That's why I look a bit "static", which I am generally not.

    Yeah, that's a great show, and a great band, with very kind people. And we use a 14,000 W PA and 50,000 W light power. The band was created in 1984, I joined them in Oct 2004.
