I am new to this site and now I am going thru the 200+ messages.I was at the Chicago show on the 3rd.I was in Row 14 on the floor center stage. It was my first concert ever to see Tina and sadly my last. It was a night that I will never forget. I live in Ohio so the drive to Chicago was only 5hrs not too bad. I was almost late getting to the venue because my stupid GPS thing in my car went crazy when we were near the L train tracks.
I honestly have no idea how I found the venue but we made it.It was awesome seeing Tom Cruise, Oprah and Stedman. My niece saw Jesse Jackson and she got a picture but it is really dark and now it is grainy when I cleaned it up. My anticipation for this concert was incredible.When the show started I had goosebumps so bad. I have some amazing photos and once I figure out how to post them I will.
The arena was definitely rocking throughout the whole show. I still get chills thinking about it. Tina looked amazing and her dancers and band are awesome. Both of her backup singers blew the roof off when they got to take over singing for Tina. I did buy a program and Tina looks her best ever. When she came out and sang Nutbush City Limits and was on the lift and it came out over the audience. I was flipping out. When the lift swiveled over the center she was RIGHT ABOVE ME!! It was freaking awesome.
When she came back to the center she was above us again. I think I blew a vocal cord because I was screaming so loud.I haven't hit that note in years, lol. One point Tina looked over the rail of the lift and looked down and she made eye contact and just smiled. I have an awesome picture of it. When they were taking the lift back to the stage she was standing on the right side of it and we were all pointing and yelling and she pointed back and smiled. Needless to say I didn't get a picture of it but it was an awesome moment. It was truly a night I will never ever forget. I wish I could go to more but Chicago was an expensive trip but the memories will last forever...Jennifer
