Saturday Sept 25,
2010 - The Puyallup FAIR
GOLDEN CIRCLE TICKETS!
by Art Rusche
the usher asked for our tickets she said, "You're
Front Stage Center" and I said "Baby!"....
"Front Stage Baby" concert!
I was able to get the coveted Golden Circle tickets at the Puyallup
Fair as Heart was at ending their summer Red Velvet
Car tour. They enjoyed playing to their
hometown crowd packing
grandstands. Heart started the evening without an opening
band and from the first notes you knew that Ann still
has it!!! Her voice is one of the most
distinguished and powerful in Rock 'n Roll history!
You could close your eyes and she sounded as good as she
did many years ago! Their new album Red Velvet
Car sounds real good. WTF!
After a week of a possible chance of rain on Saturday, it
turned out to be one of the best
of the month! It was nearly 80` and I ate my share of Krusty Pups and had
a onion burger thanks to John! We toured
through some of the exhibits and the fair grounds. About
an hour before the concert we went to our Golden
Circle padded seats! It was the first time for me
in the Golden Circle that are usually reserved for Fair
Donors. It was a great concert experience, even
though the event handlers tried to keep people from
dancing and getting in front of the stage.... :))
The last three songs Magic Man, Crazy On
You, and Barracuda were
killer and whipped the crowd into excitement and
screaming for the encore. Their encore was an
homage to their Rock 'n Roll roots first singing Led
Zeppelin's "What Is
and What Should Never Be"
and then The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me". They were
Carol had a guitar pick thrown her way and
she grabbed it fast as a good FSB would! I had a
chance for a couple set lists but this little girl next
to me was getting them all!! :)) Good friends, THE
FAIR, Krusty Pups, great weather, Golden Circle tickets,
Ann & Nancy Wilson..... What a perfect
For ArTrips Concerts
