My husband and I are flying up from Houston to Nashville on the morning of the 5th, and returning on Saturday afternoon. We've never really been "joiners", hence my previous reluctance to post on the forum. However, as we all know, this tour has changed a lot of things! We went to the Beacon in February and to the meet up afterwards where we ended up chatting to some fabulous people (can't remember any names, but recognize a few faces on the poster!) I'm also a long time LC fan (over forty years since I was a teenager in England) and first saw him in Leicester in 1976. I said then that it was the best live concert I'd ever seen and despite having seen many many live concerts since, nothing ever lived up to that magical evening - a performer who actually talked to his audience as if we were intelligent human beings was so amazing to me (I won't mention any names, but I've seen others who didn't). When my husband and I got married I told him that there was only one other man in my life and that I would fly anywhere at any price to see him again....... I'm so grateful that we've been able to do that over the past 18 months. O2 was unbelievable, but it all seemed like a dream afterwards so we went to Cardiff. Then the Beacon, and the possibility that this might be the last chance I'd get. I said after Austin that I wouldn't see LC again as it was so perfect, then we decided to go to Weybridge which was such fun! I said I definitely wouldn't go to a Fall concert, but here I am with tickets to Nashville - what is it about this man that is so seductive?
Anyway, having said all that, I think we might break the habits of a lifetime once more and join in. We're staying at the Doubletree which I believe is pretty close to the action, so a meet up before or after the concert would be fantastic. I've even bought myself a new blue raincoat for the occasion - it may not be as warm in Nashville as it is in Houston (that's my excuse anyway!)
