I grew up listening to Elton John, so when I heard he was having his last concert, (we'll see...), I really wanted to go. Tickets were uber pricey, (at least by our standards). When Christmas came around, John asked if I'd like tickets as my Christmas gift. I quickly took that off and bought us tickets for his concert in March.
The set was elaborate
Best of all was spending time with this guy!
He gave a great show!
A few days later we had another unique opportunity. John's company had tickets to the ACC tournament, in Charlotte, and since his customer was bringing his wife, I was needed to round out the foursome. At first, I wasn't that thrilled. The prospect of being, "on" for an evening wasn't very fun. But.... I would have missed out on an extraordinary experience. We entered into a special entrance, in the line with us was a former governor of our state. The masses were bulked 50 people deep, while we sauntered in within a minute. Then we got to our seats....
Amazing.. So very close...(this was the 2nd game which Duke played). Carolina played in the first game.
Later John picked us out of the crowd
