Thank you so much to The Dead Daisies and Nights with Alice Cooper for the experience of a lifetime! When we got off of the plane in Houston and the car service picking us up had a placard with our name on it, too cool. The Hyatt hotel was so luxurious and comfortable. We were a little nervous beforehand since this would be outside of our comfort zone, but the band and other crew members were so kind and inclusive, they put us right at ease. Saturday night we were able to go to the end of tour party, then spend some time with everyone at the hotel. It was fun to sit and listen to all the stories.
Sunday was the concert day. We rode with the band to the venue, which was an awesome experience. Stepping off of the bus with them and heading backstage was a rush I wasn’t expecting. We were able to go to the dressing room and see the backstage setup and wardrobe area. This part was as I expected, except when Rick Allen of Def Leppard nodded, smiled and said hello to me. Aaaahhhhh!!!!
We had amazing seats. Center aisle about 11 rows back. It was our first time seeing The Dead Daisies, they were awesome! We are definitely fans and will see them again when they play near us. Next up was Def Leppard, which is one of our favorite bands, it was great to see them play again. Then came Kiss. We had not seen them play before. To say that they know how to put on a performance is an understatement. Wow. Dave was able to take us to have our photos taken with both Def Leppard and Kiss. He is the best! Thanks also to Hayley, who showed us around and got us places and took care of us, and to all the people behind the scenes setting up our travel and other arrangements.
We will definitely never forget this!!!!
