1970's

Chicago, IL

 

I never saw the Wilson sisters' (Heart) concert, but Scott did back in the 70's.  Why he didn't take photos or save his stub, I'll never know.

Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre  Virginia Beach, VA

 

Well, we got to go together this time.  Only took 30 years!  No photos are allowed at the venue.  This time they were with Journey and Cheap Trick.  Ann Wilson's voice is phenomenal in person.  You always wonder how close to studio they may sound and many disappoint; but she sounded great.  The whole band was good.  Nancy rocks and apparently the drunken lesbian psycho behind me thought so too as she was literally screaming so loud my eardrums were killing me... and she kept yelling "NANCY!  I LOVE YOU!" over and over ... So to the girl who ruined that part of the concert for at least a dozen people around her (at least two couples and a guy besides us were all talking about you when you left), you suck.  You were sitting in Row E seat 16... you know who you are.  Thank goodness you left so we could enjoy half of Journey's concert!

5th Street Stage on the Beach,  Virginia Beach, VA

 

We attended this because we enjoy Heart's music and we feel Ann still sounds great.  This year, the American Music Fest had to me lesser pickings but we were glad to find at least this band to enjoy.  The warm up band was "Nantucket".  They were pretty good. Scott wasn't that impressed but it was fine. Once again, we were right down in front but by the time Heart took the stage, people crowded us out and I could not see well. I had to stand on a chair part of the time and we were pushed back, so the photos aren't as good as I'd of liked. Scott doesn't like it when I say year after year and concert after concert that we need to keep inching up WAY before the concert starts. I know what happens if I am not RIGHT up to the stage! I am so short I have a difficult time enjoying the concert.  I hope one day he'll get more aggressive and remember these past concerts. There's always hope I guess. There was no chance of autographs. Radio disc jockeys cover the event, they have food and drinks and there are a few vendors around the boardwalks etc.  Parking is rough. Prices are a bit higher. Starting at 6.00 for the parking garage this year to 20.00 for lots several blocks away.  Food sucks always at the beach. I highly recommend you eat before you go. Beer is expensive. They card you at the gate and give wrist bands to those who drink. Usually the concerts are free and therefore ticketless, (all the others are free up and down the strip) but the fee is usually small but there is one for the 5th street concerts. This one had a ticket. This one was like 20.00 plus fees (so over 25.00 each in the end) this year, which is the most expensive concert to date for us at this event.  Remember to get sunscreen, a good chair and some cash as well as a towel and some water to drink. Dress accordingly.
