A bit off topic, I know what you mean about drunken idiots. I was at the Paul McCartney show last night and right behind us were some of the most obnoxious, drunken college kids I've ever had the displeasure of sitting near. First of all, they wouldn't shut up, second, they couldn't sing ( imagine being trapped at a really bad karaoke bar, where they screech the words rather than sing them) and third, by the end, they were so drunk that they were spilling beer on us, not even realizing it.
After repeatedly being told to enjoy a nice warm cup of STFU, they got downright beligerant.
Anyways, after much torture, Laurie decided that she had had enough beer spilled on her and got security, who escorted the whole bunch out to much applause by the surrounding fans. Some lady was so grateful she even gave Laurie $5 after the show to buy herself a drink.?
I never thought I'd say this...
Laurie Hett, you're my hero!
Sorry if this turned into a semi-review of the McCartney show, I just had to vent about drunken idiots at concerts.
Ok, umm, yeah Chip basically said it all!! Not once did I get bear spilled on me, but twice in 30 minutes. So did the woman next to me. And after I was called the "C" word, twice and heard enough screaching, arguing and gabbing, I said ," #@*% THIS!!" ?I just wish I had done it sooner!!!! ?I didn't pay $100 for nosebleed seats, or any seats for that matter to have to listen to the crap any of us put up with last night!!!
I will never be able to listen to Black Bird the same again!!
Best part--the guy got arrested and his groupies, including his MOTHER!! (Yes she was there) all went with him to the cop shop. As they were all escorted out by like 7 security people, we all sang, "Na na na na, na na na na, Hey Hey Hey, Good Bye!" (Which just happened to be the song Paul was playing at that time!!) It was so cool!!
Now, since I had to miss some of the show getting security and arguing with them and trying to ignore the beer smell all over my body, I'm going to contact my "hook-up." Yes, the Hook up queen herself has hook-ups too!! ?(Which is how I got front row to CHER). I know people, who know people, who know people, so I WILL BE GETTING Paul McCartney stuff in the near future for myself, Chip and Sarah and Sarah's dad, to compensate. If I knew who the other people were, then I'd try to get things for them too.
Murf tells us that the YIPES members were there last night too!! ?I thought that was awesome!!!
Oh did I mention that after the show Sarah, myself and her dad with 11 other people all got stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes?? ?Where was Chip you say? Why he took the stairs to the 8th floor!! 911 and the fire department were called.
Needless to say, twas quite and eventful evening!
