We started a holiday tradition in 2007 of attending the TSO concert every year. Last night was our fifth time at the show. And we are fans for life.
About 15 minutes before the show, one of the road crew introduced himself to Gus and explained that part of his job is to pick a child to watch the last song from the front row, and did he want to be the child tonight? And he made sure that we were planning to stay to the very end of the concert.
Gus was very excited as he figured this would put him in a good position to maybe catch a used drumstick.
The band gives an autographed guitar to one child in the audience at each show and last night it was GUS! We were in the right place at the right time.
I'm thinking that at some point I'll be designing a TSO inspired quilt now.
It was a great show with an incredible finale. And while I'll try to fix the fuzzy on the second picture, I'm thankful that I did stick a camera in my pocket at the last minute...
