Wanted to report back on that Neil Diamond concert.
Neil is about 105 and still can make the ladies yell. The average age at the concert was about 55. Not very much standing. Neil's show consists of him walking around the stage and dropping the high notes down an octave.
Sitting infront of nerfette and me were two 30 something's with their barely 20 something girlfriends (one of which was an LA 10). They were all bombed and acting really stupid. anywho, the guy sitting next to them had his granddaughter with him and told them to stettle down. Our whole section was annoyed by them. Finally security came and yanked them out. I thought that was it. The 30 somethings came back to their seats about 4 songs later. Apparently they had convinced security they were not a problem. About 5 songs later, Grandpa decided that was enough and got up to move/leave. As he was trying to get by the 30 somethings, words were exchanged and things got out of hand very quickly. FISTS started flying. Old men wearing their nicest tommy bahama gear jumped in to take a shot at these dip shits and the 30 somethings ended up getting their asses handed to them. I thought about getting in there and throwing down, but I didn't really think that me hammering some dorks during "Cracklin' Rosie" was appropriate. Those guys are lucky, if neil would have been rockin' "Forever in Bluejeans", I would have mixed it up.....BIGTIME.
ANywho, to make a long story short, I was the only person to give a statment to the cops about the afore-mentioned scrap. Grandpa was cleared of all wrong doing. I don't know the final outcome, but I'm sure the 30 somethings had charges pressed against them.
Neil Diamond = Thug Life
