I'm A-Fray I've Been MIA

MENTAL STATUS: "Well Rested". Haven't been around because I went to a concert and stayed overnight in Philadelphia.

Sorry I've been MIA recently. I went to the Fray in concert. (I guess the joke in my title kinda falls flat, but it amused me.) Get it now?

Anyhew...the Fray were awesome! A couple of months ago when my hubby mentioned that his friend (a huge Fray fan) wanted to go the concert, I said, "No way. I am NOT going to see the Fray."

Then a little later my hubby sweetened the pot and said we'll all go out to a nice dinner in Philadelphia beforehand and stay overnight in a hotel in Penn's Landing. Then I said, "Well, OK, then it might be fun."

THEN I actually started listening to the Fray more on the radio and kinda liked their music.
This is my favorite song by them: "You Found Me"

Last year I saw Jimmy Buffet. But I had a MUCH better time at the Fray concert. (No offense, Jimmy) :)
The only thing was it took forever for them to come out on stage. The ticket said show starts 7PM. We go there at 8PM. The Fray came out around 9:30PM. Needless to say it was a late night. :)

The next day we slept in and went out to a leisurely breakfast with the other couple we went to the concert with. *sigh* I really needed that after the whole camping mishap.

What was the last concert you've been to?

The last concert I went to was Jonny Lang, the blues guitarist, but the BEST concerts I've attended over the years were Michael Jackson. I saw him at Madison Square Garden several times and at Giants Stadium. Nobody on this earth put on a show like MJ.

Stop by my blog today and watch the two videos I linked to.

the last concert i went officially (someone you would know) would have to be the Dixie Chicks (pre-anti-presidential statements).

Jennifer Shirk said...

Wow, Chicki! Seeing MJ in concert must have been cool.

Jeannie: LOL!

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for the blog visit.

How fun that you went to a Fray concert and then a little rendevous. I've discovered The Fray through my 13 yr. old daughter. Love "You Found Me" but I really like "How to Save a Life".

The last concert I attended was The Newsboys, and only cuz we got free tickets. I think I'm past the whole concert thing now. Must be gettin' old.

Think it might have been Third Day...but it was YEARS ago. I love concerts and my husband and I want to be more intentional about going. Now, I'm going to go listen to that song.

I can't remember the last time I was at a concert...

No wait! It was They Might be Giants in 1998! OMG I need to go to a concert!

Man, you're worldly. Your life seems so exciting compared to mine. I haven't been to a concert since University days.

I saw James Taylor about ten years ago... I miss James!
I am going to take DD to see Miley Sirus (sp?) In September.
