Those Summer Nights are Callin'...




Rocked the crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium

Such a great concert!
Night Ranger got things started. I'm not too familiar with their music. We did have a funny
"who knows the correct lyrics" war on the way to the concert.
Curtis won. Not saying who the loser Rick was. 

"Sister Christian" (the only song we knew) lyrics are:
"You're motoring. What's your price for flight?"
"You're wondering, What's your price for fame?"

Foreigner was awesome..."Jukebox Hero" was a favorite.

Then Journey rocked the house!!! Kicked it off with one of my favorite songs: "Separate Ways".
Favorite song of the night:


It was fantastic and Arnel really nailed it & added his own little flavah to it. Almost made me think
"Steve who"? 

Like most Journey fans, I really miss Steve Perry...but I've followed the band through all their lead singer ups and downs.
 (I did get to see Steve P. back in the 80's and it was beyond amazing!)

But the new guy (Arnel) does a pretty great job too.

(The good old days)

Not a better way to spend a summer evening!
We had a blast!!!


  1. Oh yes! Journey was my band of choice way back then too. I saw them in concert in the good old days. I think it's pretty cool that my kids love them NOW.

  2. Sorry I missed it! Glad you were able to go with the family.

    Isn't it funny when we find out the correct lyrics of a song and realize that for years we've been singing it wrong?

  3. I know lots of people who went to that concert. Sounds like fun.

  4. FUN! I didn't really know many Journey songs until I started watching Glee. I love "Faithfully."

  5. That sounds like so much fun!
    Oh, the great music.
    Those were the days!

  6. What a great night! As with the rest of you my teenage years were defined by Journey, Foreigner and all the other great 80's bands!!
    I slept on the sidewalk in front of the Salt Palace in 1983 to get tickets to see Journey - I sat 10th row center and I would do it again!!

  7. Thanks for your visit. This sounds like a fun weekend and a good concert. I love the picture of the Manti Temple here below..beautiful! :D

  8. Thanks a lot! Our daughter is reading over my shoulder and makes the comment to me ...'see mom, other moms are out there going to cool concerts. You should too!'
    I think I'm too musty and dusty to be a concert goer. I did attend an old fashioned gospel revival concert in the park over the weekend of the 24th.... can't that count ??!! Mostly church hymns and mostly folks from our ward... but still.
    Hope you are having a great week!
    Sheesh... I don't know how you made it through the wedding stuff. It's growing me older by the minute :)

  9. I only know one or two Night Ranger songs...Journey? Awesome.

    BTW, thanks for slipping out of 'lurkdom' and making your presence known. You are now a hero.

    I just wanted you to know.
