Last night I got to use on of my birthday pressies. No, not one of Nora's movies, the Santana tickets! It was great, he was so active and sounded just as good live as on CD. The man is 60 and performs like a 20 year old. The rest of his band were older as well but they had no problem putting on a great show. They took to the stage at 8:30, no support act just straight into Santana, and by the time they did 2 encores they didn't leave it until after 11. If I'm half as active at his age I'll be happy. He played old on new, classic and some not so classic Santana and the demographic of the audience was astounding. From really old (I'm sure one man was in his 90's) to really young (the kid in front couldn't have been more than 12) and everything inbetween. And it didn't matter what age everyone got up and danced. I haven't been to a concert since I saw Nickelback in Australia nearly 2 years ago. Although, I did see that Maroon 5 are here in March. It's just a shame I don't work for Ticketek anymore and can get freebies or really good seats. Still, even though our seats were on the cheaper side we had a great view and could see everything clearly, in fact we were so close I couldn't see how the higher priced tickets would have been any better.
After such a great night it's hard to get back into the work.
Life. Love it! Live it!
