The Rolling Stones: 50 & Counting Tour

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Im so bad. I can't believe that I haven't shared this!
As part of our anniversary celebration (you know, back in May- oops!), I was able to score (literally-- I was able to get the $85 Fan tickets!) to the Rolling Stones 50 & Counting tour!
CL has been a lifelong fan of the Rolling Stones, and this was on his bucket list of shows to see, and when they announced their tour and there was a show in San Jose of all places, it was meant to be. When I told him that I was able to secure tickets, we were both super stoked! Then the waiting began!
The day of the show seemed to drag on, we carpooled and headed home after work and quick let the dogs out and changed before heading up to catch the train to the  HP Pavilion (which is now the SAP Center). 
Since we bought the fan tickets, we did not know where our seats were located until we got there, checked in and recieved our envelope with the tickets in them. We were so nervous- they could be in the pit, in the nosebleeds, anywhere. To our suprise, we opened the envelope to see this:
 ROW 1.. as in front row!
We quick located our seats (amazing!) and grabbed something to eat. CL didn't want to drink as he "wanted to take the whole thing in". He's so cute!
 Basically, im about to post a ton of photos and say that it was, hands down, the best concert i've ever been to. No lie.  John Fogerty and Bonnie Rait came out and played a few songs, as did one of the original members of the Rolling Stones, Mick Taylor.
We both really enjoyed ourselves and are so happy we had the chance to see them before they stop touring or kick the bucket.. we weren't sure what was going to come first! haha.
If you ever have a chance to catch them live, GO, you won't be disappointed!
