Friday night, after work, Jgurl, Pokey and I headed down to Seattle to go see the one and only Richard Marx.
This was my first time EVER being at the Neptune. I have lived in WA most of my life, and I had never stepped inside this landmark. One more thing checked off the bucket list.
Seats were General Admission, and the line was halfway around the building. I knew most seats in the house were good, but I figured we would be stuck in the back. Boy was I WRONG! We got seats 6 ROWS BACK! UHM, HELL YA!
There was no alcohol allowed on the main floor, so Jgurl and I had to slam back our drinks in the bar. As you can see, we took the challenge to heart.
The stage was set up with a microphone, stool, guitar, and piano. That's it. When he came out on stage, it was then I realized that this was an acoustic show.
And for the next 2 hours, Richard (we are on a first name basis now) regaled the audience with humorous stories, AWESOME singing, and witty comments.
His voice, and his songs, transported me back to yester-year and I was completely enthralled.
