From last week’s show in Phoenix… They’re not my best because they were taken with my cellphone, but some are pretty good. Critter traded up our tickets from the 12th row to the 2nd, so we had a great view! So check out the photo gallery for the best ones. I was very impressed with Tina’s performance. So much energy and class! This woman has had such a huge career both in the U.S. and in Europe — actually even more in Europe — and seeing this living legend do her thing right in front of us was a treat. The James Bond bit was unexpected since “Goldeneye” was so long ago, but it was good cheesy fun. And when she ran around on that giant mechanical catwalk which rotated out over the heads of the audience during “Nutbush City Limits”…wow. I know she’s been doing that for years, but still! The bitch is awesome. Tomorrow night we see another diva: Madonna. I’m a little “meh” about it because I think she’s lost some of her appeal since her Confessions tour. Plus I’m not so hot on her latest album since most of the songs have the same predictable Timbaland sound — all the beats sond the same, and I don’t buy the hip-hop slant at all. But we’ll still enjoy the show I’m sure. 🙂
Tonight we’re headed down to Phoenix to catch a Tina Turner show on Friday. I’ve never seen her but Critter’s seen her about a dozen times and loves her to death, so it’ll be fun. Plus, the woman is 68 years old and still rockin’ out like she’s 28. Gotta admire that. We’re calling it “The Frozen Peas Tour” because of her appearance on this year’s Grammys. Brrrr, it must have been cold on that stage!
