Blink-182 Concert

This was a few weeks ago, but I'm just now blogging because I didn't have my camera for a while!

During the day of the Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! at the Disco concert, Eddie was so excited he kept bouncing around, not wanting to do anything but wait. I, however, insisted we watch some movies to make the time pass more quickly. We got there about an hour and a half early, but it wasn't as early as we thought because I thought the doors opened at 6:30, but it was really 5:30. The lines were going way out the doors... it was a madhouse! On our way in we passed Blink-182's tour bus and got some pictures with it. Even though we weren't very early, Eddie, Patrick, and I trooped up near the front of the general admission section, claiming some very close spots. We had to wait through a very mediocre warm-up band we'd never heard of, but finally the bands we were there to see came on! I couldn't get many pictures of Eddie watching the concerts because it was dark with flashing lights, making a good picture impossible. But trust me, he was having a great time! He sang along to Fall Out Boy, and danced very hard to Panic! Although those bands are some of the biggest in the US, and very good, what everyone was reallllly there to see was of course, Blink-182. It was so great when they finally came onto the stage... it was unreal! Eddie was particularly entertained by animations of a sassy rabbit that were shown on the screens behind the stage. The music was amazing live and we didn't want it to ever end. When they left the stage, Eddie looked so disappointed that it was over, but was delighted when the curtains rose again for an encore. And this was no ordinary encore. Travis, the drummer, was doing a crazy-intense solo...on a moving platform! He was harnessed in, drumming as he moved around high above the stage! It was a memorable end to an epic night!
