My favorite band. Love their music... I got to meet them last night, it was terrific. I had a bit of an internal freakout, tho. I had so much I had planned on saying and doing... and all I did was be able to utter a few sign this pleases and several Thank you's and a big "fangirl" grin :) I did manage to get their autographs and a pic. The photographer took ONE shot... and guess what, as my luck would have it, my eyes were closed. I reckon I just need to go to another meet & greet next time they are around. I'm good with that. Meanwhile, my daughter is going to try to fix the photo error in photoshop.
This is me with my eyes open, and that curly hair y'all wanted to see. I'm feeling brave. Heck, I'm posting a closed eye pic here, too. LOL! Now that is brave, but not really my fault! Another lady had closed her eyes too, but they must've caught it cause they took another shot for her. :/ ... :( .... chin UP RENEE!!! :) And anyhow, what Fall Out Boy fan wouldn't want a picture with the them, even if your eyes are closed? My younger daughter put that one to me just like that. :)
and here's me with the band!!! it's Pete, me, Joe, Andy, Melanie, and Patrick... and no, my hand is not on Joe's butt, it's flat on the counter behind him! LOL Pete and Joe had their hands on my back. :D
But let's not dwell on the negative (eyes being closed thing)... I had an excellent time! I got to meet my favorite band, they were all very nice and smiled a lot. :) Pete signed the book I brought (a novel that he wrote) and he smiled big when he handed the book back and said thank you to ME! :) that was cool. Patrick signed his solo cd and Andy and Joe signed their pics in the Save Rock and Roll CD insert.
Then the concert... it was excellent. Up first was a band I didn't know of, twenty one pilots, there are just 2 of them, but they can bring on the music, that was great.
Then Panic! at the Disco. They put on a great show and have great music... here's a pic of Brendon Urie:
Then Fall Out Boy played ... and it was awesome!!!! Excellent concert!!
I didn't get any good pics of FOB, :/ I was letting my daughter man the camera and she put it down too soon. oh well... We did get a few good video clips and I'll put them in video blogs. :)
