So I went to the Eagles concert last night.
It was held in the Greenpoint Stadium.
A stadium that was built for the Soccer World Cup.
With quite a bit of controversy.
Look at the above photo.
Squint if you have to.
I used my little camera.
And I used the zoom.
Really….I used the zoom.
The figure on the left is on the Tv screen.
I don’t have zoom.
I could barely see the guys.
We were on the fourth level.
Thank heavens I did not pay for the tickets.
They were REALLY expensive.
And I discovered just how much I can multitask.
I can think four thoughts all at the same time.
I was thinking….
Where the hell are they?(the Eagles)
How well did they build this stadium?
Who opened the frigging windows?(there was a hellish south easter blowing)
What am I doing here?
Gee…they are old.
Gosh…they can still play a mean guitar.
Damn…I am hungry?
I wonder how clean the toilets are?
That is more than four thoughts.
My brain was in overdrive.
It was my first visit to the stadium.
Even if I was not leaving Cape Town, it would be my last.
Parking is almost impossible.
We had to walk miles.
I tried to cheer myself up by saying it was replacing the beach walk I had missed.
It didn’t work.
We had to queue to be searched.
The woman who searched in my bag didn’t have a torch.
She wouldn’t have found a thing.
If I had known it was going to be so cold I would have smuggled in a hipflask.
On second thoughts that would have been a very bad idea.
Take a tumble from that height and you are going to do yourself some serious damage.
We had to queue to get into the actual stadium.
I reckon there were at least 40000 people there.
You had to queue for food.
So I didn’t.
There weren’t very long lines at the bar.
I am not surprised.
R20 for a small glass of cheap wine.
So, I can cross a visit to the stadium off my wish list.
Not that it was actually there.
If anyone ever invites me to another rock concert I shall decline.
And buy the DVD.
I might make an exception if the Beatles had to appear.
But, as some of them are dead, that would be a bit creepy.
Eleven more working days here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
