We got to the door & gave our gifts to the Marines that were there to collect the toys. We went around getting free stuff from the radio station & from the Marines [concert cups, pins, highlighter, mints, calendars, drinks]. We decided to sit up on the balcony since the front few seats were all taken & we wanted to see everything. Michelle & I met someone from the radio station & had our picture taken with her & our group had a picture on the station's website! The Backstreet Boys was missing Howie [cuz he was with his new wifey?] but was Nick hot, mmhm! Brian & AJ looked nice as well, hehe. They were so goofy, hiding behind the Xmas trees :) Vanessa Carlton came out first & she was mindblowing amazing! She sang songs from her new album & when she thought she was done, she was pushed back on cuz the crew wasn't ready for the next group, lol. Then she came out to sing "Ordinary Day" & then they kicked her off to set up for Collective Soul.
Collective Soul came out & only had 2 of their 5 members perform. We didn't know why that was, but they weren't that bad. Afterwards, the crew setup for Elliott Yamin & then he came out in a Santa hat, aww! Steve & I were in the mosh pit in front of the stage & unable to escape cuz of all the fangirls there, lol. He was very nice & he seemed to enjoy himself very much. My favorite had to be "Wait for You" & it was the last song of the night, talk about yayyy! I was like 7-10 feet away from BSB & Elliott, how sweet was that! While Elliott was exiting, he threw the towel he wiped his sweat on into the mosh pit & these 5 girls were seriously fighting over it for over 10 minutes, lol! Steve & I decided to run off before we got trampled by them, haha. Thus ends a perfect night of procrastination :)
