We drank several beers and when the opener stopped, we took our blankets and headed to the grass. We got really good seats because we were so early. Around 7:30 Alice in Chains came on the stage. OMG! They were fucking awesome. Jerry Cantrell is a rock god! When they played Man in the Box, we screamed every word! I got chills several times.
Then we sat and waited. And waited. And waited. Ridiculous. I was ready to go when Velvet Revolver finally took the stage at 9:45. And they kinda sucked. Interstate Love Song was boring and he missed the beginning of Vaseline. I know they have played these songs the entire tour. It wasn't until they started playing their songs that it got better. I'd be sick of singing those other songs too. Anyway, my heart just wasn't in it after AIC blew us away. I'd hate to have to follow that every night.
We left before the encore and headed to the One More. Mel was waiting on us. We played pool and hung out until it was time to go home!
