Tour: Albertane Tour
Date: August 9, 1998
City/State: Charlotte, NC
I went with: My mom and my cousin Jennifer
I expected the show to: Actually this wasn’t my first Hanson concert, the first one was in 1997 at The Plaza in Charlotte, NC. Either way the show exceeded all of my expectations… so much fn
We waited in line for: 5 hours I think. We had our home made signs and talked with other fans while waiting to be let in
My favorite song they did was: Speechless and Weird. Oh and More Than Anything, it’s just too hard to pick!
A funny thing that happened during the shoe was: Oh let’s see… It started raining during the show. We had lawn seats so we had to buy some ponchos to wear, my mom also had an umbrella with her that she used but while doing that she was dumping water on top of my head! Once I realized it was coming from her, I just looked at her until she noticed and told her what she was doing, we were both laughing! Oh and I almost slipped off the bleacher seat because me and my cousin were standing on them jumping around to the music.
After the show we: ran ran down to the stage and left our signs on the stage like a lot of fans were doing, we had written our names on them and put little notes on there for the guys to see, I think we may have never put our phone numbers on there, hoping in all hopes that they may call us or something. Wishful thinking on our part.
The show did/did not meet my expectations: oh it definitely did. The only thing that sucked about the show was that it rained for most of it. Other than that, it was exactly how I thought it would be, amazing music, dancing around, singing at the top of our lungs and just letting go!
Anything else you would like to include? I still can’t believe its been 15 years since I first saw Hanson in concert, their music has inspired me, it’s helped me get through some pretty tough times in my life and I don’t know where I would be today if I didn’t have that to help me through. Sometimes I try to think how my life would be if they hadn’t come into it but I hate thinking about that because it scares the crap out of me.
