Dan & I drove to Shoreline Amphitheater on Saturday evening and met these lovely ladies. We were so lucky that Suzy & Angel decided to get there so early to get us incredible seats in the very front of the grass section. Angel got so good at last second poses since I was constantly aiming the camera her way. The Sounds opened the concert. They were cool and very energetic. Paramore's performance was fabulous as usual. This was the third time I've seen them in concert and I swear, every time I see Hayley, her hair gets more orange!
Kristi got stuck in really bad traffic due to the concert and didn't find her way to us on the grass until Paramore was done and the lights were turned back on. I thought for sure that she'd never find us since we were front and center of a HUGE crowd.
Waiting for No Doubt to come on stage:
I'd never seen them in concert before. The show lasted about 1 1/2 hours and I was so impressed by the bands energy throughout the show.
I have always loved Gwen Stefani and her unique style. I totally want to be like her when I grow up. Her abs were amazing and I loved that she did her usual push ups during Just A Girl. Super empowering!
The stage design and video footage played during the concert was such beautiful eye candy. I took over 200 pictures on just my little point & shoot camera. That's not even counting the photos I took with Suzy's camera. I feel so sorry for her since she asked me to take a few photos. The woman didn't know what was coming... 500 photos later...
The drummer was wearing tighty whiteys and some knee high socks. Later, he donned a pink tutu and walked around the stage with a smaller drum. I loved his character so much!
The keyboardists were jumping, singing, and dancing the whole entire time! The one on the left is local, from Richmond, California! When you look at all of the photos I took from Saturday night, you see a mosaic of color. I think that I'll have to put the photos into a mosaic when I get around to scrapping this incredible night.
I'm so glad that Dan bought tickets for us to go to this concert. I jumped and screamed a lot with Kristi, Angel, and Suzy. I had so much fun looking over at him for his reaction each time something really cool happened. I think the most memorable part for me was when No Doubt left the stage before the Encore and people were just screeching. It wasn't pretty to hear so I told Kristi that we needed to get these people organized.
She & I started chanting "No Doubt' repeatedly and before we knew it, a huge section of the grass seating was chanting with us. No Doubt came back out on stage before a minute had even passed. What an end to a wonderful evening.
