Flatts Fest

We attended Flatts Fest the other night.  Rascal Flatts....with Sara Evans, Easton Corbin and Justin Moore.

Great show!  I really liked Justin Moore!  Rascal Flatts didn't play as long as I thought they would or as many songs as I thought they would, but they did choose the best songs to sing:

Summer Nights
Bless the Broken Road
My Wish
Easy - My new favorite song.
Life is a highway
What hurts the most
Fast cars and freedom
Take me there.... and many more.

(They didn't play I Melt - which is my favorite - maybe they played it in the encore - if anyone knows, please let me know).

We bought seats (real seats) as opposed to the lawn seats where you just bring a blanket and sit on the lawn (mostly kids up there!)  It was actually a beautiful day/night for sitting on the lawn watching a concert.

We were lucky enough to leave the concert just as Rascal Flatts ended their last song and before the encore.  We got to the car and maneuvered through a swarm of people and got on the highway.  Other friends of ours were still stuck in the parking lots over an hour later.  Comcast Theatre really needs to re-work their logistics.  It was hell.  My daughter was with my sister in her car and we (in my car - 50 minute drive) were home already and she was still in the parking lot.

Many friends of mine were there and we also knew a ton of other people there. I actually went with the hubby and my brother and his wife and their two kids.

The pre show in the parking lot was a freak show.  Suffice it to say, we spent almost three hours tailgating and people watching in a parking lot.   Some of it was hysterical, some not so hysterical, some sad and some of it made me mad.  Who brings a stripper pole to a concert??  Tell me!  (There are some crazy stories in those parking lots.)

I used to go to concerts all the time...sometimes once a month.  Needless to say, I haven't been in years and now you know why! :)

I won't be going again any time soon, but I'm glad my daughter got to see what goes on and what NOT to do at  a concert.  A priceless experience.

 Sitting in our seats (finally), you can see the lawn in the background.
 We were in the back, but we didn't care - we had end seats and lots of space in front of us.
