So I accepted the 30 day snap challenge from Louise at A Sprinkle of Glitter (check her out she’s much better than me!). I have failed this challenge I am rubbish!!!! But I’m gunna give you loadsa pictures today of a very exciting night in my life, hopefully that will make up for my failings!
Let me tell you the story of the week, on Tuesday me and Georgina decided to go see Bon Jovi on Saturday night! Who does that?! Most gigs you have booked up months if not years in advance, not days! We got the tickets half price from Groupon, I love a bit of Groupon anything for a bargain. So Tuesday morning on my commute to work I got very over excited and rang George who in turn got very over excited and we booked it and I can say it is one of the best snap decisions of my life!!
Saturday came and we set off to Manchester, joined a very small queue to collect our tickets and then went and sat in the car and ate a salad, cos that’s how me and George roll (yes we roll, we’re that cool!). It was a glorious sunny day so we headed into the stadium (Etihad, Manchester) got ourselves a pint and sat enjoying the sunshine.
That’s us sat in the sun in our rock and roll shades!
There was a couple of support acts but who wants to here about them, you want to know about the main man!! Well let’s just put it bluntly he may be 51 and been a rock star for longer than I have been alive but yeah I still would!! You all know what I mean.
He also had an amazing set if teeth, it’s all I could look at! They must have set him back a few quid!
The staging was amazing too, it was like a massive frontage of a car, I’m thinking a mustang but what do I know! The screens behind it created a windscreen and at some points showed scenery as if it was driving along, it was just amazing and so clever. Also so much work to erect it for one night and then take it down to move it to Birmingham tonight, well done to the men doing that job!!
There is the man himself. He was amazing, no stopping him. He did about 12 (maybe exaggerating!) encores! They played all my favourites but the best of the night has to be bad medicine or maybe living on a prayer or always!! Lol I just lived the whole thing really!
It was one of the smoothed and bet experiences of my life, everything went to plan, no cock ups, which is pretty amazing where me and George are concerned!!
My body is broken today tho, who would have thought standing up for 5 hours would hurt so much, my feet, my back, my hips, my neck all ache! But it was well worth it!
