Ahh, but I did! Best seats I’ve ever had. A pal from Winston-Salem got tickets, somehow, through Soozie Tyrell. Fourth row, stage right, 25 feet from the stage. A good show. Not a great one. But my pal was seeing him for the first time. For him, it was a relvelation.
My colleague here at the paper, Mark Sutter, did even better than that on Tuesday in Charlotteville. He was the guest of the food bank director there, and their seats were twice as close. Not only that, but Bruce selected their song recommendation: Kinks/You Really Got Me Going. And better still, they got to meet him after the show for about 10 minutes in his dressing room, got photos and stuff signed. Not surprisingly, Bruce was very gracious, even in his exhausted state. Mark floated back to Greensboro on a cloud.
