Sunday, August 24, 2008 - The Projekt Revolution tour featuring Linkin Park and Chris Cornell played at the Cynthia Woods Pavilion. This was a show that Jacqui really wanted to see. In fact, had it not been for her, I probably would have missed it - and boy, am I glad I didn't. It was a GREAT concert - Chris Cornell sang some of my old favorites, and Linkin Park came out and CRUSHED IT!! ...not only did they play a great set - but they had the crowd SCREAMING every word - it was awesome!
At the time Jacqui and I got tickets, only Amy had committed - so we had three good seats up front (row BB). Sometime after I got tickets, BigRob and Monica, her sister, several cousins, and of course Scott was there! Heck - it was BigRob's Birthday! ...jeez - I was a little buzzed - just now remembering - I shoulda bought that boy a beer. I owe ya one buddy~! Also, Jac and I didn't get there until about 5:00, so we missed the opening bands on the side stage...these first few pics are courtesy of Amy - getting up close!
BTW, this page is a bit long, so grab a cold one and enjoy. ...and honestly, the pics on this page pale in comparison to the videos - and the videos pale in comparison to REALLY BEING THERE. There really is nothing that can match the energy from a really good live show...like this one.
We're here! ...it's HOT.
