REO Speedwagon



I spent an entire outdoor REO concert last Thursday (Taste of Minnesota Festival) seated in a lawn chair surrounded by heavyset people also in lawn chairs, protecting me from the thousands of standing fans trying to push their way to the stage. There were only about six of us seated, right front and centre, and I'm sure we gave the bands something to talk about backstage (Cosmo opened for REO, mostly playing Boston songs). So, would you want to be me, or would you want to punch me? Do you get to a rock concert extremely early (like we did) to grab the best seats or do you prefer to fight your way to the front? Our ring of lawn chairs was impenetrable, but I don't think I'd do it again.

When REO appeared at a Wal-Mart, promoting their new album a couple of years back, I jumped off the REO Bandwagon...

I was at the Seether show Saturday and promptly decided that the spot to be was on the back bridge, overlooking the sweaty crowd and a sweaty crowd it was.
