We found a real goody from the summer of 1993.
It was a medley of “Firsts”.
It was our first State Fair. We did a bunch of them that summer and the audiences were always great even if the accommodations weren’t!
They always set up the amusement parks right near the stage, so we were always competing with the “throw up rides”. We all could hear people screaming and shrieking during “I Am Your Child”. Ah, show biz.
It was the first time I received a letter asking me to allow someone to propose to his girl.
I stopped the show, had him come down to the edge of the stage, get on his knees (like he’ll probably be for the rest of his life!) and ask her to marry him.
But another first, was that I had received TWO requests like that. So we did the whole thing twice!
It was great.
And the last “First” was during “Weekend In New England”. I’m pretty sure it was the very first time the audience screamed on the line “When can I touch you”. It seems that the band and I look very surprised when that happens. Check it out. See if I’m right.
The show was great. The audience was great.
Watching the show made me miss being with you, my band, my crew and making music.
Let’s all hope and pray that this terrible time goes by fast.
Stay safe everyone.
