It was an awesome day. First was the VIP Meet & Greet, there were about 14 of us who participated. The band was great, they signed everything that we put in front of them. Heck, they even dealt with me asking them to use a different color marker on each of my items :) I got a great picture with the band, one with Biff, and one with Nibbs. The VIP package was well worth it in my opinion!

The concert itself was amazing, I'm not sure what the attendance was but the crowd was very loud and energetic the entire show. You could tell Biff was very pleased with the crowd reaction all night long, and there were quite a few SAXON SAXON SAXON chants. And to top it all off, I caught one of Nigel's drumsticks, sometimes it pays off to be tall!

All in all, it was a great day, and the band made the 5 1/2 hour drive well worth it.

Very nice review. Thanks for sharing the pictures. The Thursday show in Dallas can't get here fast enough. I'm still planning on hitting the San Antonio and Houston shows too. I like how they're changing up the set list a bit at each show which means there's a chance they could play Sailing To America.

Nigel is wearing a Cheesehead...the show was in Wisconsin, and that's a popular piece of headware over there :) Wisconsin is one of the biggest cheese producing states in the country, so it's kind of a symbol over there.

Being from Minnesota, I can't really condone the wearing of cheese on one's head! From what Nigel told us during the VIP event, he said his wife had requested a Cheesehead...not really sure why, maybe she'll have to explain herself!

A friend coming to the asked if they could bring Nigel anything. As the gig was in Wisconsin I knew the hat would get a good response from the fans, which Nigel says it did. Plus it ties in with his love of all things silly.

Nigel did really seem to get a kick out of it, that's for sure!
