Monday night I saw John Mellencamp at Clowes Hall. I was a last-minute addition to the group of Alyce, Angie and her daughter, Shelby. Angie's sister-in-law, Tracey, was supposed to go but is pregnant and on bed rest so I bought her ticket. She is a huge fan and has been to lots of his concerts. I've been to two, including this one. I must say, after this concert especially, and after meeting him (Post No. 94), I consider myself a real fan. I would definitely go see him again.
I do feel bad that Tracey couldn't go. She and Alyce bought the tickets at the Clowes box office and our seats were in the third floor balcony. We were technically about eight rows back, just very high. The rail came to the middle of my thigh. I was very careful to not topple over. It was the perfect space - we were able to dance around when we wanted. We did find out that Shelby is afraid of heights. She spent most of the concert sitting on the floor peering over the railing.
