yes, we all know who they are, but I need to keep my pages consistent, don't I? ;)
We drove all day to reach Cincinnati, since we'd been at the Detroit show the night before. Finding our hotel, we only had a short while before we needed to head out to the venue. I had called and they said small digital cameras were allowed, so I took my camera in. When the gate people saw it, they said digital cameras *not* allowed. Sigh. They were kind enough to give me a choice... I could take the camera back to the car, or I could give them the batteries and they'd throw them away. Pulling a very sad face, I gave them the batteries.
Of course, I had extra batteries in my pocket... and hence, I was able to take these pictures. ;) Our seats were not so hot, as they were pretty far away, but the night made up for it. The Riverbend Music Center, an outdoor venue of course, was right next to the river. It was SO hot and humid there! We'd been hot in Indianapolis and in Detroit, but it hadn't been quite so humid. I know we both nearly passed out during the show just from how humid it was... and the guys were drenched in sweat by the end of the show.
Since cameras weren't officially allowed, I didn't want to display my still-operative camera while it was still light out and it could be seen by officious security types. But I did get one good one while Stoll Vaughan was playing, when he was assisted by Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Phil Collen.
