Oh it sounds so good to me

Emily was robbed of close-ups during most of the show---so I post this picture to try and make it more even...

The Dixie Chicks concert was a blast! Probably my favorite arena concert ever. The company, of course, helped make that so (thanks to Michelle, Jen, Caryn, Meg, Betsy, Jay and Jen!) The Chicks put on as exciting a show as their FLY tour—and, as far as I was concerned, you couldn’t beat that one with a stick.

Joan Osborne opened for them—we had all eight lighters going and Joan waved to our gang twice—no, REALLY, right as us, honest!

They started out with ‘Goodbye Earl’…usually an encore song…continued with two or three more toe-tappers from their first two hit albums. LOVE ‘Am I the Only One’ from Wide Open Spaces. A great move to start with the songs that made the fans fall in love with them in the first place.

One of the highlights for me was definitely the video montage which complemented ‘Truth No. 2’ from Home. As Natalie said, they had no idea when they recorded that song how much meaning that would give in dealing with ‘Incident No. 1’. Great video clips representing past and present areas of social struggle (I’ll post some of the video here soon—wish I had it all on tape)…WE NEED THESE CHICKS AND THEIR ATTITUDE IN COUNTRY MUSIC.

Their stage set-up was incredible—two or three live video switches feeding to a large screen for each quadrant of the arena, and no fewer than eight plasma screens for the lucky floor ticket holders. I actually felt like I got my money’s worth at this concert (minus the ‘convenience’ charge, of course).

More soon, just felt compelled to post something this evening…

Check out Meg's hat... At this point, all of our lighters worked...

    i’d like to send a shout-out to courtney for providing us with the spontaneously combusting lighters in a true rainbow of colors. maybe we weren’t invited into the chicken coop, but there’s no denying that color-coordination made us look SHARP.
