I had the pleasure of hitting the road 2 years ago on this day to see Van Halen in Charlotte, NC. I never pass up an opportunity to take Barrelassin' Momma with me when I can, and she was available. She's a hoot! I really have enjoyed this venue several times. It's the PNC Music Pavilion and it's a few hours from home. They have some of the cleanest restrooms for an outdoor venue I've ever come across and the lines are super fast! None of that worrying about missing the show or having to use the Port-a potty. Really nice staff as well. Very organized place.
The sound is great, but what can I say- when you're seeing people like Van Halen and all the others I've seen there, the sound you hear is going to be nothing short of something amazing. I was able to upgrade my seats at the last minute seats that became available for this particular show and we couldn't have been happier. My little Momma is happy to join me as my Rock 'N Roll sidekick, and together we've piled up and driven to many places and even hopped on and flown to a few just to have some fun. That's not bad for a woman who just turned 75 years young.
I love all forms of Van Halen and all forms of Sammy Hagar- so I'm not interested in that debate. You can give me any one of those talented bunch of guys, together or separate, playing a huge show or playing in the damn circus for all I care, as long as they keep playing for me, I'm a happy gal! Next up- Sammy Hagar, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, Asheville, NC. I can't wait for the Red Rocker! (I tried to get those Cabo tickets but it's not in the stars for me this time. One day.
Enjoy, Barrelassers ;)
