For those of you that watch CBS' Rock Star, you may remember last year's winner, J.D. Fortune. Well, even though he wasn't my favorite, you realize why they chose him to front their band - he's a solid and energetic performer.
We went to this arena to see J.D.do his thing with INXS. Chicago's own Marty Casey (the runner up on Rock Star) and his band Lovehammers opened the show.
This concert arena is great, with friendly folks working there and only $5 for the parking. (After paying more than 3 times this price for good ol' Chicago parking, I was impressed). When I ordered the 1st balcony seats, I thought they would be located in a true balcony, but I was thrilled to see that my first row seats were actually a foot off the main floor! Wheee, you have to like that one. The sound system was good and the arena is very convenient to the highway.
By the way...in case you were wondering, the concert was fantastic!! INXS still rock the stage, and that Gary Beers is as adorable as ever. And even though I didn't personally vote for J.D. Fortune to be their new lead singer (Mr. Casey was my fave) he was a dynamic performer and a lot of fun to watch. And Marty Casey and Lovehammers put on an electrifying, killer concert. If you have the chance, go see them in concert or pick u their CD. ROCK AND ROLL, BABY!!
