It's finally here! The looong wait is over. Tomorrow (Friday) we take off to see Bruce Springsteen in concert!
If you are a regular reader here you probably know that Bruce is Rick's absolute idol. He is a huge (
This time around he has included NZ and is playing two concerts ... and Rick being the massive fan that he is insisted we had to go to both! So ... we're off tomorrow to attend both concerts over the weekend.
Rick saw Bruce over 10 years ago when he last played in NZ and I am so excited to be there at his side this time around. I can't wait to see his excitement and expression when the Boss takes the stage :) Don't get me wrong. This is not all entirely Rick's gig. I am also a big fan and am quite proud of how much of Bruce's extensive repertoire I know (if I do say so myself). Oh yes, I've been brushing up on the songs and 'practicing' lol. Of course, it goes without saying Rick doesn't need to brush up lol. I am also looking forward to just spending the weekend away together.
I am a bit worried though how I will handle the crowd and the atmosphere and whether I will have the required stamina. For both of us, but for Rick especially, this is a dream come true. I would hate to detract from his full enjoyment by not being able to keep pace, or for him to compromise his preferred 'spot' at the concert for my benefit (our tickets are in the front section standing ... of course! lol). Summer seems to be finally making a late surge here so I am crossing fingers for fine weather. It should be, according to the forecast at least!
Having said that, I am a little more relaxed now than I was. I'm sure I'll be caught up in the atmosphere and music and be fine. Not to mention watching the man I love getting into it and enjoying his dream come true :)
We will be away until Monday evening which, of course, also means I will be awol from blogland for a few days.
I realise I have posted much about 'us' or DD recently. I do have a couple of posts floating around in my head which I hope to make some semblance of sense of and publish in the near future.
