Last night we went to the Wildflower Festival in Richardson to see Bret Michaels play with his band. Being a fan of Rock of Love (anybody else hoping it doesn't work out with Ambre so we get a 3rd season?), I was really excited to see him play in person. Bret and I went along with my sister, Sarah who said it was her first concert ever! Well, this was probably a good one to start her out on. It was more of a family atmosphere since it was part of the festival - how cute are the little kids playing in the fountain? We found a pretty good spot on the grass, but ended up moving up closer towards the end when the crowd started dwindling. I made an "I Love Bret" t-shirt to wear - thought it would be funny since my hubby's name is Bret too. :) They played all the Poison favorites along with some of his new stuff. We thought it was funny that he was wearing a shirt with his own picture on it - really?!
We hung around for a while after it was over to try to meet him and hopefully get a good pic. The rest of the band came out, but nobody really cared about them - I kind of felt sorry for them! He even had them selling his t-shirts at the merch booth before and after. They auctioned off Bret's cowboy hat - I think it went for $380 or something like that - and also his shirt and bandana that he wore during the concert. Big John did come out for a while and Sarah and I got a really good pic with him. But no Bret. He never made it out - so we headed home. It was a good time, but we agreed next time we'd rather see him play with Poison. Guess this is what I get for marrying an 80's boy! :)
By the time he played his last song, I realized I could record video on my camera - duh. I got a little of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Enjoy!
