My first concert. I remember coming home from school that day from the first grade, and it had been raining earlier, so it was still damp.
I got home and was so excited about going, I remember going shopping before hand, and getting to the arena, seeing Neil’s bus in the rear and wondering if was back there.
We get inside and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Looking down into the arena and seeing the stage and equipment then getting down to our corner seats.
The show begins with Headed For the Future, and I was told I was almost bug-eyed when he hit the stage, cause I was so excited. I remember he came out in a silver shirt, then on to Sooliamon when he changed into a deep red one.
Then he sang Heartlight, and like the blink of an eye the best night of my life so far was over and done. We left Chapel Hill and headed for home, when we arrived home at 12 27am, going to bed not really believing what I saw, and to this day I am still in awe of this great man, and his music.
Thank you to Neil and the NDRRT for one of the best nights of my life. I am 33 now, and still have not forgot that great evening or that feeling…..Oh no no no I Got The Feeling, again.
