The Red Voodoo Tour
Sometimes you go to a show and the performers appear that they don't want to even be there, that they are just going thru the motions.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Then there are times like this evening that the performer goes out of his way to make it a memorable experience.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â My wife, daughter and I arrived at the pavilion about 7:00 and proceeded to our seats.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â While waiting for the show to start my daughter could hardly control her excitement, afterall this was the closest she's ever been at a show, though this was the third time she's seen Sammy. We were third row in the Pit, Dead Center.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I walked up to one of the Security Guards and asked if there was anyway to get the sign my daughter had made up to Sammy to sign.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They told me about 3-4 songs into the show come over to the aisle and they'd help me get up to the front and get it signed.
Seconds before Sammy came onstage a woman turned around and asked "are you Chris" to which I acknowledged and she told me her name and I'm sorry I don't remember who it was but you know who you are.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You turned around and gave my little girl one of those red glow in the dark sticks,ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â THANK YOU.
Sammy came out in his usual Cabo------Revival.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â About halfway through Revival my daughter held up her sign that said 'I Love You Sammy'ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â and Sammy stopped in his tracks and blew her a kiss and you could read his lips as he said 'Thank You that is great'ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â during Fall in love again the security guard caught my eye and waived to me to come down.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â When he finished that song he came down to where Brittany and I were standing and he said "He had to take care of his biggest fan"ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â which is not far from the truth.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He took the sign from my daughter and showed it up to the closed circuit camera for everyone to see.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â And then politely signed it and gave it back.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Throughout the show he would walk by us and wave at Britt or blow her a kiss.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Which just made her blush, then towards the end of the show she was sitting down in the seat and he walked by and asked if she fell asleep.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sometimes things just work out absolutely perfect, this night did.
As far as the show,ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â this was probably one of the better concerts I have ever seen, the band was very crisp and sharp.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â From the opening notes of Cabo to the end of Returning of the Wish, it was just a great get-down Rock-N-Roll show.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Some of the highlights were of course Eagles Fly which is my daughter's favorite,ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Bad Motor Scooter, Three Lock Box, and well if I stated the best songs I'd have to put down the whole set list.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Anybody that still has the oppurtunity to go see Sammy, please do not miss him he whole-heartedly appreciates his fans and deserves our support.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
Thanks to Chris Smith for the review!
