So last night was the Motley Crue concert.

Good times. We did the tailgaiting thing, of course, but it was SO BLOODY HOT out (it was over 100, and so humid you could see the air) that I spent most of the afternoon sitting with Diddy in the Diddymobile in the air conditioning. Highlights of the day included:
- JV broke my beach chair.
- J set the lawn on fire.
- Some crazy broad in the craziest outfit you ever saw was wandering around - of course we took pics but I haven't uploaded them yet. That will be up tomorrow.
- We met a nice couple who didn't think we were annoying even though we talked to them all night and sang really loudly and off key in their ears. I know they didn't find us annoying because they shared their tequila.
- We saved beer caps for Drunken Master, but I think we might have lost them somewhere along the way.
- Hub met one of the opening bands and they signed his CD for him.
- Crue did not play Smokin in the Boys Room - how is that possible?
- Crue also took so many breaks during the show - it was actually annoying. I don't know if they were taking their geritol or if Mick Mars was readjusting one of his recently replaced hips, but it was like, let's play two songs and then take a break and then another two songs and then another break. It got on my nerves.
- I saw more flashed boobies at this concert than I did at Mardi Gras.

I'll hopefully have more pics to put up tomorrow. Hub took a bazillion pics, plus some movies, so most of the tailgating pics are on the other memory card and I have no idea where it is. But here is me and Patsy rocking out:



But here's the best part. We get home at about 12:30 and we have no power. My whole neighborhood was out. Mind you, it was still in the 90's and there is no way I could sleep in that heat. The power didn't come back on till after 3:30 a.m. It sucked. So I got almost no sleep last night (again) and Princess woke up nice and early. Bah.

OMG!!! I'm so jealous of you right now. Did you see Nikki? How did he look? They're coming to Hotlanta next month and I didn't get tickets, but I'm still going to try and go see them. I can't wait to see the rest of your pics.

I'd love to see Crue in concert. I saw Warrant last summer, and they were awesome. But I'd have been pissed about the constant breaks too. You're getting paid to sing, fools!

Looks like a fun show! I may go see Crue in Sept down here! If it was 100 degrees and they were having to jump around on stage can't really blame them for needing to cool off a bit now and again. But they didn't do "Smokin' In The Boyz Room"?! That's just crazy!

Indigo said...

You two sure were rockin' out!!

No power? That would totally suck.

SAWEEEETTTTT!!!!!!!! We go see Motley Crue on the 24th! Its at Pine Knob (aka DTE) its an outside concert...hopefully they don't take as many breaks. We saw them back in February, I think it was and they f*ckin' kicked ass!!!! I can't wait!

Peanutt said...

P.S. Jly and I are not sisters! Been best friends since the 1st grade! Sorry your allergic to Peanutts....I'm not much of a fan myself! LOL.

Natsthename said...

Ahhh, those days are probably gone for me...but YOU ROCKED OUT!!!

Sorry about the power and the heat..that SUCKS. Good God, did you get ANY sleep yet?? Perhaps a nap today while Princess rests?

mg said...

acumamakiki said...

Please let this heat end soon! We haven't opened the windows here in over a month!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

The power put a damper on your night; never mind, you had a great time.

Katy said...

I lov ethat I have you to live vicariously through. AHHHH Motley Crue!;)

Molly said...

Glad that you had fun at the concert, can't wait to see the pics.

Sorry about the lack of AC I think it should definitey be a punishable crime to not have AC in the dead of summer!

Tuesday Girl said...

My cousin was there last night too.
Ugh it was so hot this weekend, that storm was the worst.
It took me 1 hour just to get to the turnpike because roads were flooded.

mrsmogul said...

Cool stage set!! I am envious that there was a heat wave there! And you wrote bloody hot!? Even I never write that hehe. Also how do you set the lawn on fire again??

Stationery Queen said...

I consider the song they didn't sing, like, their signature! It's like Culture Club not singing "Karma Chameleon" or Barry Manilow not singing "I Write the Songs." OK, that last one was my parents fault. I haven't seen Barry Manilow perform in concert. I have, however, seen Michael Bolton. ... I'm so sorry. Please forgive me.

Cat said...

Oh man, Sounds like an awesome night! until you got home that is... wow. sorry about the power, that sucks. Hope you all are cooler now, and getting rested.

Take care

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

i'm exhausted just thinking about this. hope you're in bed sleeping right about now!

Holly said...

Love the pics! You've got the classic Crue hand formation... just perfect. Rock on!

Patsy Darling said...

Oh man I so don't remember the concert. I looked through my pics today it's all a blank.

Marie said...

Oh, wow!! Sounds like an awesome time. I just looked through Patsy's pics as well. Good stuff!!

I saw Motley here in Phoenix, earlier this year. It was the best I had heard them in a while.

They played a very long show, without any breaks.

They're coming back in October but I didn't shell out the $80 to go again.
