Get your mind out of the gutter – LOL. WST gives us this interesting prompt. My take:
Bob Seger is one of our favorite performers. We have seen him twice in concert. The first time was extra special because we met Ross Valory from Journey in the bar before the show!
We saw him again a couple years later and I documented that one as part of the A to Z Challenge.
We really wanted to see him again so I got us tickets for a show in 2017. He was going to be at Oakland and that is an easy venue for us to go to. Unfortunately he had to cancel that tour because he was having issues with his spine and needed surgery. Of course his health is more important and we were told that the dates would be rescheduled so I wasn’t worried.
And then we got a notice that our tickets had been refunded because the venue was being changed. He didn’t come to Oakland when they announced the make up tour. He was going to be at Shoreline in Mountain View. That’s still a venue we can get to easily BUT it was smack during the middle of my husband’s annual golf tournament. We were so disappointed. That was to be his final tour. As I searched for news of a new one for this post, I see that his saxophonist, Alto Reed, died last January. That is sad.
I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with the times Bob Seger DID come to a venue near me and we were able to see him. Thank goodness for my concert scrapbooks! How about you all? Any time a performer didn’t come close enough for you to catch the show? Hope you are having a happy Sunday.
