Florence, IN concert
« on: February 23, 2013, 10:16:32 am »
I'm a little late in writing my review for the Paducah/Florence weekend. I'm hoping one of the other girls can do Paducah. I decided to do Florence because I probably won't go back there & it was a roller coaster. The hotel we stayed at had shuttle that went to the casino, that was awesome! These people on the shuttle were passing out beer! I was like you can have open liquor on a moving vehicle?! Driver didn't seem to care! Well lots of fun on that shuttle! :)

When we got to the casino 3 of us 5 girls didn't have tickets. It's extremely difficult to get decent tickets to this venue. Jane & I had original seats way in the back, we just wanted to get our feet in the door & hopefully move our way up front. Gina, Vera & Bea didn't have tickets so that was very stressful on what would happen there. Gina & Vera managed to get tickets, but Bea wasn't so lucky. She was a good sport & told us to have a good time & we would meet up after the concert. Just couldn't get into this concert as much knowing she wasn't able to get in. Jane had friends that were closer up, so we both moved up. Had two guys that let us sit in their seats, which was nice of them till the one kept pinching my butt! UGH! So Jane said lets go up by her friends in the front row by Tommy! Okay, I thought for sure we would get busted by security, but nope we were left alone. Had a great time getting love & smiles from the boys, especially Tommy, that smile is so beautiful! :) Well I see behind me octopus arms is there, oh great! I swear I was ready to kick box his butt into the next state! I wanted to tell security, but was afraid that we would be told to go back to our original seats, so I had to put up with it! The boys were AWESOME, they never disappoint! Tommy was being silly & making Jane & I laugh, you are just to cute! Oh & thank you Tommy for taking off your sunglasses so we could see your eyes!!  :D It was a great concert as always & had a great time overall!

The morning we were going to meet up, Bea, Jane & I stayed at another hotel as the Belterra was sold out & very expensive. Went to Starbucks in the casino & waited for Gina & Vera. I had to get my morning fuel, the hotel coffee maker didn't work! Not happy! So Jane, Bea & I are enjoying a little breakfast & some coffee when we see Bruce & Chris come in! So we got to do a little chit chat with them while enjoying our coffee. Then I see Tommy, who I have never seen outside of a concert setting before! Of course I hardly had any makeup on & had only 3 hours of sleep so I look awful! He came in & gave me an early birthday hug & a little kiss! That was a nice birthday present! SO HAPPY!  ;D

We went outside to say goodbye to the boys before they boarded their RV for the airport! Their was a roller coaster of emotions in Florence! In the end it ended well & I think we were all happy to have made to another concert & have some fun! Next concert is Mt. Pleasant 3/3, can't wait to rock out with the boys again! Hopefully I didn't put anyone to sleep with such a long review!  8)

No way that you put me to sleep with your review, Jennifer. So interesting to read.
Poor Bea ... didn't read anything about her not being able to see the show on facebook. What a shame !!!!
At least she was fortunate to meet Bruce, Chris and Tommy!
And you got your early birthday kiss - lovely.
Thanks for taking the time to keep us informed, I appreciate it!

Great review Jennifer. I'm so glad you had a great time. So happy to know that you got a  hug and a kiss from Tommy. I sure know the feeling. I also had mine at the M&G in Vegas. I will never forget that moment. By the way, I hope you are having a great day on your Birthday today!!  ;D
Have fun on your next concert. I'm sure you will :)

Just to be clear about the ticket situation here
The casino held a ton of tickets for their high rollers
Right before the show I tried everything to get Bea a ticket
The promotions desk had a stack of standing room only tickets and would not even give one up for her.
I tried a good old fashioned cash bribe and they didn't budge
And it wasn't a $20 bribe!
