Glad you had a superb time, Jerry. The only thing you didn't mention in your review was how your "guest" enjoyed herself.

Default Ringo In Los Angeles

Well, it's about time I posted my review of Ringo's show on August 30th. He played at the Universal Ampitheatre, which is a very good place to see a band. It's right next to Universal Studios and City Walk, and it can't hold more than 10,000. 5,000 is probably more like it. Even so, I was shocked to see plenty of empty seats! I guess touring every year has saturated the Ringo market?

Anyway, the concert was great. No matter what, just seeing a Beatle perform live in any situation is unique. Ringo ran out there and did only 2 songs before he got behind the drums and let his suporting cast take over for several songs. I'm sure others have commented on who and what was played. I really enjoyed hearing so many songs live that I've heard a billion times in my life on the radio. I was also thinking that there was probably no way I'd see any of these guys as a separate act, so it was nice to just hear them all do a few of their main hits. But I will say that the dude from Supertramp was by far the best. Sheila E was actually pretty cool too, that dude from Mott The Hoople was kind of comical, Howard Jones brought back memories of junior high, and that Emerson, Lake, and Palmer dude was ok too. Actually, the guy doing all the wind instruments was probably the most talented. I forgot his name, but he played the sax, flute, bongos, guitar, bass, and drums at different times. Not bad.

Anyway, the show was great overall. They didn't leave for an encore. Ringo just said "this is the part where we leave the stage and you guys cheer for no reason to get us back on stage." So the audience cheered while they were just sitting there, and then he said "ok, we've come back on stage now." Then he finished the show with a few huge hits. I think Octopus' Garden was the only major hit he didn't do. Other than that, I really enjoyed myself and I hope he comes back soon.

Oh yeah, I forgot. Mom loved the show too. She's seen him 3 times now, 1 more than I have. She even sprung for both tickets, and then took me out to In 'n Out for a little midnight hamburger. Remind me to take her everywhere from now on!

I'm glad she had a great time as well, Jerry. Mothers are very special people.
