daisy_knotwise and I are going down to Wrigley Field with samwinolj and Bonnie for tonight's Billy Joel / Elton John concert.

This should be fun.

Loud, but fun. I think I'll go look for the earplugs. :)

Elaien and I enjoyed their concert a couple years ago at the Rosemont Horizon. Do you get to sit in your seats at the concert tonight?

No, the seats we're in should be better than those. They're in section 14, row 7, so we're down close to the field.

Sounds like a potential, very different, take on the idea of Dueling Pianos.

And WAY different than the dueling pianos scene from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Loud, but fun.

I've never quite figured out why so many sound techs for pop/rock (and sometimes even jazz) music think they have to crank the systems so loud. I once actually got a letter of apology from a venue because the group had their system too loud (the venue was Popejoy Hall at the University of New Mexico and I had season tickets to their cultural series when in college. Sergio Mendez's sound tech was pumping about twice the volume that that well designed space could tolerate)

Sounds like I'll be joining you at Wrigley Field in August, Bill.

So I understand. It should be fun! I've asked two other fannish friends who were at the concert tonight if they'd like to join us at the game -- they're checking their schedule.
