While we are in the Loyalty Club at the Mountain Winery and can get advanced tickets which leads to closer seats, we’ve never actually paid extra to get VIP seating until Lindsey Buckingham came to the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Fleetwood Mac is one of our favorite groups and we’ve seen them several times over the years. We’ve seen Stevie Nicks (my muse and the letter “N” in 2017’s A to Z) in solo performances but my husband’s favorite is Lindsey and up until now we’ve never seen him perform alone. We also had never been to any kind of show at the Palace of Fine Arts so when the opportunity came, we splurged a bit to get VIP seating. It was not a meet and greet experience but we were seated in the 5th row. There was also some pretty neat swag given away and we got to enter the venue before the commoners – LOL.
I decided to go with a set of papers called Handmade Memories. It is from my favorite Paper Wishes and had a free download of tags and embellishments to match it.
We got some great pictures in front of the Palace of Fine Arts. Turns out we parked at the back of the building so we had to walk all the way around. I took shots from all different angles. When we got to the front entrance we were able to go in and waited in a short line for our VIP goodies. I had some salmon hors d’oeuvres that were delish.
The bad news is that once we were at our really great seats, we were told there was NO PICTURE TAKING! I was so disappointed and almost got in trouble trying to sneak a few. Really, the usher was standing close to where we were and kept a watchful eye over the audience. I was not the only one trying to take a shot. We got our selfie in but even that’s not a great one. We were trying to get the stage behind us. Frustrating to be so close and not be able to sneak good pictures!
My husband’s favorite song is “Big Love.” While he did perform this when we saw him at the Palace of Fine Arts, this version is from when he was still with Fleetwood Mac from their tour in 2013.
Okay! Tomorrow is a break day and then we have four more letters. Can she do it? Side note, Blogger seems to be having some technical difficulties at the moment so if you can’t see some of the pictures, you can always check out my blog on WordPress. Have a great rest of your weekend.
