a couple weeks ago Leah and I went to the Luke Bryan "That's My Kind of Night" tour. He had two amazing opening acts Mr. Cole Swindell, and the hunky Lee Brice. *side note, I had tried to get tickets when this show first went on sale, however, I had no luck in finding tickets.
A week before the show Leah was on FB talking about finding someone to go to the show with and I messaged her immediately. Somehow we found amazing tickets within five minutes. Row 12 in the section right next to the stage. This was going to be Leah's first ever country concert! I was so excited to go with her.
We got into downtown St. Paul and headed right to Burger Moes. If you haven't been there you need to go immediately! Ate dinner and hoped and prayed we wouldn't fall on the ice that lined the sidewalks on our way to the Xcel Energy Center. Thankfully we made it inside, it was freezing outside, only 3 above with a wicked windchill.
While waiting for Cole Swindell to take the stage I noticed two super duper overly intoxicated chicks. I turned to Leah and said " in about five minutes that beer will be all over me and my north face." sure enough a few minutes later (after Cole hit the stage) one of the drunk chicks fell over and her beer spilled all.over.me and my jacket. I was so unbelievably pissed off. I went right up to security to let them know what was going on, everyone in our section was clearly peeved at these drunk chicks. after a couple more trips to complain to security about them, they told us there wasn't anywhere to put the girls because the show was so over sold out. I was pissed again at this point that they wouldn't just kick them out. The supervisor could tell I was getting more and more peeved by the minute. She asked me if I wanted to go into the "pit" area. we agreed.
This area was right at the front of the stage, only full of super important people and members of Cole Swindell's band. We were finally able to enjoy the show without the drunk chicks. I don't mind if your drunk but at least be able to hold on to you beer. #oldlady
I took some videos and was so excited to share it with you. However, we were THAT close to the speakers you can't make out anything he is saying or singing. All you here is boom boom boom-you get the point. I was able to get some amazing photos.
Out of all the performers Lee Brice was my favorite.
