CREED with RED and Theft - 2010/09/04
Even though we saw Creed when they came through Houston last September, tickets for this show were less than $30 for covered reserve - and the show was on a Saturday night. So Jacqui and I snagged a couple. It was like a 'date night' - we went to Pappadeaux before the show... OMG, we were so stuffed, we almost didn't make it to the concert. OK, showing my age again...
When I got my tickets for this show, clearly printed right below CREED was 'No cameras/No recorder' ...so I was a bit nervous bringing in my new camera. I swear, security getting in was tighter than most airports I've been through. The guy with the metal detector wand went over every inch of me...but no worries - we made it in, grabbed a couple beers and headed to our seats. After a while, I noticed LOTS of people with cameras, and security never seemed to mind...whatever. Bottom line - we really enjoyed the show, and I managed to get some pretty good pics, and some AMAZING video.
Pappadeaux - YUMM!!
...and doesn't Jacqui look awesome!
OK, let's start the show!
The opening band was 'Theft' - and they were surprisingly good.
....I'm still amazed at the pics I can get with my new camera - we were back in row R all the way on the right side.
Taking a break between bands...
Notice how they blocked off a huge part of the lawn. It had rained earlier, and I guess they didn't want it becoming a mud pit.
I can't say for sure, but I think they opened it up when Creed came on.

RED has opened for Seether and also played Buzzfest - I think this is my 3rd time to see 'em.

OK - so they guy behind us says 'the next song is What If - blow up these balloons' - and he hands us a bunch of black balloons.
...so of course, we blow 'em up, and send 'em flying - weeee!! ...Silly concert fun.
