Change of pants? Check.
Clean T-shirt? Yep.
Camera? You betcha.
Pre- and post-show medication for the headbanging? Damn skippy. (I'm not as young as I used to be)
Willingness to just let loose and rock out live to one of my favorite bands of the 80s and early 90s tonight for the first time in 17 years? HELLS YEAH!
The Kapgar Summer Concert Series continues tonight with Poison and special guests Ratt and some other band at World Music... er, First Midwest Amphitheatre tonight. I seriously have not seen these guys live since 1990 when they were on the Flesh & Blood tour and Warrant opened for them. It was a great show by a band I worshipped and now I get to see them again.
Oh, and just like the Def Leppard show, it's free.
By the way, Def Leppard rocked. As did Foreigner and Styx. God I love Styx. Great friggin' band. And, they still rocked even playing second fiddle to Leppard. Got some pictures of the fun over on Flickr.
Totally Unrelated Aside (TUA): I hate when this happens. Last night, Katie and I were reading in bed and I started falling asleep. So I put my book away, took off my glasses, shut off my light, and fell asleep. A while later, Katie decided to put down her book and try for some z's. As soon as she was done getting ready, I woke up. And I couldn't fall back asleep.
