INXS Rocks The House

Last night I came home from the INXS concert without my shoes but with a concert experience worthy of a place in my Top 5 concerts of all time (I ranked it #3). It was such a great show!!!! Our seats were row ten, stage right so while we couldn't see the big video screens we did get to see JD nail Kirk w/ the mike stand (accident) and were close enough to see JD's grimaces of pain from his busted leg. What a show that guy put on w/ only one good leg. Amazing. The whole band was fabulous. Love Kirk's boots!

I should have written my blog entry last night b/c this morning it all seems so surreal and I don't know how to express how fun it was. One note of interest is that cell phone's are the new lighters. One of the coolest moments was when everyone was clapping and yelling for the encore and it was pitch black, I looked out over the crowd and saw a sea of blue cell phone screens swaying back and forth. It was AWESOME! Also saw a chick jump the fence and almost make it up on stage before getting tackled by two huge security guards (it's like a streaker at a football match). JD tossed out one of his shirts (pink!) and there was a full on cat scrap for it. Keri acknowledges that she would have fought to the death for it as well. I also thought JD was going to burn down the stage b/c he kept tossing lit cigarettes all over. We'd heard that JD likes to drop the F-bomb and thought it would be a fun game to keep count. Up until the encore he only said it twice but then all hell broke loose and he was using it every two seconds. All in all it was an excellent show and super fun night. Have to say that opening act Scott Stapp (yes of Creed and that nasty sex video w/ Kid Rock) was good, especially when belting out Creed's hits.

EDIT: I totally forgot to say that they were filming a "rock video" for Perfect Strangers. We're going to be famous. Well, maybe not but it was still fun.
