The Rolling Stones Tribute Concert Was Terrific!!

Good morning everyone. Let’s get right to the important stuff ... like Billi Pod's thoughts and comments on last night’s entertainment event ...

The Rolling Stones tribute concert at Carnegie Hall was terrific. It started @ 8:10 and was over at 10:30, with no intermission. The pic is of the curtain call.

The opening song was “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and the closing song was “Wild Horses.” There were a total of 21 songs, plus 2 encores.

Dozens of excellent performers. Art Garfunkel and Jackson Browne were the best. No member(s) of The Rolling Stones showed up. Awwwwwww!

A female performer, Rickie Lee Jones, give an extremely bizarre rendition of “Symphony for the Devil.”

The house was sold out and Billi Pod was not the oldest person in attendance. Bottom-line==>Great time, well worth the expensive ticket.

Billi Pod has yet another entertainment doubleheader for today ...

2:00==>JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR - “The Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s dramatized rock-opera version of the last 7 days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.” (Broadway - complimentary ticket)

When this showed up on one of my ticket services I instantly booked it. I mean ... how could I pass up this Broadway show with a comp. ticket?

Yes, I am going to see it again, snarky chat board critics be damned.

Then for this evening is something new ...

8:00==>REGRETS - “A drama, set in the 1950s, about a young man who flees Hollywood and heads to a Nevada desert retreat where men go to secure a quickie divorce. A tale of friendship, loss and finding the courage of one’s convictions. (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)

This show is in very early previews and has generated little, if any, advance buzz.

At this point I am unsure whether I will come back to PHC between shows. The weather is just awesome so I will probably just walk and wander. Hopefully, at some point I will be able to connect with Dian Crystal and her posse.

Need to post this and get ready to head out ... have to pick up my matinee ticket early and not at the box office.

Will close with yet another thing for you loyal and faithful readers to ponder ...

Really .... why?
