Tonight was a total blast!!! We have been looking forward to this concert for awhile and it was FANTASTIC !!!! MUCH better than we anticipated!
We have been catching a lot of the classic rock shows in the last few years to compare them to when we saw them back in the day and over the years; Journey, 38 Special, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks (blog of that one here separately), Kansas, we have Aerosmith coming up in July, and so on, and I have to say that this ranked right up there with one of the best we’ve ever seen. They are even better now than then were back then.
And, we get to see them again next Friday in Nashville!!!
Let the show begin!
And, our cool TShirt that we’ll be able to now wear when we see them again next Friday night at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville
Promptly at 8p, Kool and The Gang hit the stage and they were great. They played for almost an hour, set list is below. The crowd was up dancing and getting primed for Van Halen.

And now!!!! Right at about 9:15p, Van Halen hit the stage and they played for right at 2 hours! It was loud, it was rocking, it was awesome, and ranked right up there with one of the best shows we’ve ever seen and we’ve seen some good ones over the years.
