Especially memorable for me was the fact that the SSCW era was well-represented. John sang "Fallin' Down" and Robby sang my second favorite song, "Another Second Time Around." Robby was HILARIOUS throughout the night!!! He kept walking over to our side making these crazy, eyes-bugging-out faces at all of us! And if we got quiet, he'd walk over and look at all of us, like, "What's the deal?" Then, if we started yelling, he'd smile like he was satisfied and wander away again. I believe that Johnny mentioned Joe from the list, cuz he said something about "my buddy from Buffalo." It's so cool how they remember their friends/fans. This was my favorite of the two shows.
Upon arriving in Myrtle Beach on Friday, a thick fog settled in. I didn't even get to go to the beach! :-( Kelly, her boyfriend John, and I went to the HOB for dinner, then left for a little while. By the time we got back, there was no way we could get down front, so we stood to the right side of the stage by the bar. We still had a pretty good view, but at the time, were disappointed not to be front and center. When the Goos came out, however, and we heard about all the fighting, we were glad to be in our safe haven!!! Despite the tension due to the immaturity of the crowd, our boys sounded wonderful!!!! It is soooo good to hear more of Robby!!! He only sang a few songs at the first show I saw in OKC, but at these two shows, he sang sooo much more!!! The HOB show featured lots of older songs, too, and saw "Fallin' Down" replaced with "Stop The World." I don't think the boys had near as much fun at this show as they did the night before. When will people learn that fighting at a concert is not a GOO-d thing? Grow up!!! (I'm off my soapbox now! lol...)
The excitement of my Goo-trip still hasn't worn off, and I've been home for over a week now!!! I highly recommend at least one Goo pilgrimage to any diehard fan. It's an experience you won't soon forget! I had a blast, and made a great new Goo-ber friend (Kelly!) Now, if I can just make it one more week, I get to see 'em play again, in Fayetteville!!! Am I hooked or what?!?!
