***UPDATED WITH PHOTOS FROM CANDY!!! ***
On Thursday, July 23rd, the bus will be rocking into the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. Our own Glambs Fan Club Leader Dana will be attending, and she has sent us this pre-concert report…
It is finally here! I haven’t had to wait for the Dallas concert nearly as long as others are waiting for the tour to arrive to their city, but it seems like I’ve been waiting forever. F.O.R.E.V.E.R. Then, it will be over too soon and I will have “after concert blues,” I’m sure. When will Adam be on tour again…on his own this time? It won’t come soon enough for me.
But in the meantime, I’m totally psyched to have the opportunity to watch Adam perform, even if his set is a too-small segment of the entire concert. My husband and I head out Tuesday evening (with some stops along the way) so the 6 hour, one-way road trip from south Texas doesn’t seem so long. There is really no advantage to having all this land in one state, especially when it comes to traveling. I still can’t figure out why there was only one concert here.
Anyway, as far as concert preparation goes, I’m really not a fashionista, or a poster-waving fan girl. I’m an early-forty-something fan who is usually happy with clothes that don’t make me overheated, comfortable shoes, minimal makeup, and easy hair. Do you know what the Texas Gulf coast heat and oppressive humidity can do to a middle-aged woman with too many clothes, heels, thick make-up, and hairspray? It’s not a pretty sight. So you have to understand that what I have done is truly “over the top” for me!
So here goes:
• Tour blue shirt with symbolic butterflies
• Rock goddess jeans, distressed with stretch (woo hoo!)
• Starlight glitter nail polish
• Jewelry: Silver rings, earrings, & chainmaille bracelet
• Fansite cards, camera, & binoculars
• …and more shades of blue eyeshadow than I’ve worn since the year Adam (and dreamsound) were born!
Please come introduce yourself if you happen to recognize me. I’ll be back with all the after-concert details, too.
As always, if any of you are planning on attending the Dallas concert, please comment with your thoughts, either on your preparations for the concert, going to the venue early for the autograph session, the concert itself, or the aftermath.
