Bryon and I went to the Sedalia State Fair Saturday night to see Alice Cooper. We had seen him together about 16 years ago in Kansas City and Bryon and Greg saw him while we were all in college. That man is like the Dick Clark of Scare Rock, he just never ages. He looks exactly the same!
It was SO dang HOT up there! It was close to 100 degrees all day and the sun was so intense it was almost unbearable. We had GREAT seats only 12 rows from the stage. It was the second best seats I've ever had at a concert. If it had been inside and air conditioned it would have been PERFECT!
He played a great variety of old and new songs and had a much tamed down stage show since he had very little room to work with but what a great performance. Greg and Candace went with us and we had a great time catching up with them. Candace had never seen him before and I was a little skeptical that she would like the show but she was rocking out over there and really praised his overall showmanship. It was NOT her type of music, lyrics or show but she was a real trooper!
There was a drunk girl beside me who was WAY too friendly and practically leaned on me they whole show. Like I needed another hot sweaty body next to me! Lots of drunk old rockers but a good time was had by all. Blue Oyster Cult opened for them. I only new about three of their songs, but they were okay.
Candace and I had to stuff kleenex in our ears it was so LOUD. I know, I know, that means I'm getting old. I admit it. It was much more tolerable with the kleenex :)
