Congratulations on the M&G, that had to be a great experience. I too was at the Roanoke concert with my cousin Deb and our friend Angie. We were on row 4, great seats. We were also wondering about the first 3 rows?
? The Security there were very RUDE. I approached one guy and told him I was in the fan club and ask if I could go up front during autographs. He said NO. Then he said your in the fan club you got a M&G, I told him No I didn't they are a random drawing. He also said it was up to the singer as to what level of security needed. I told him I knew that AJ wants his fans to have fun, get up and dance or whatever. AJ even announced that at the start of the show. As I was sitting there (I never sit at an AJ concert) Alan was singing his BLUES MAN
I approached to the center of the floor to take a picture as so many had been the whole night. I took 2 pictures quickly and someone was finger punching my shoulder, I turned around and it was one of the security men. He told me I could only take 1 picture, he pissed me off and I turned around and took another. I have never seen such treatment at any of AJ's concerts. The front was off limits unless you had those tickets or you were a young teen. Through out the whole show they were letting extra young things in too the stage. Now about the show.......Awesome as always. And yes we 3 did dance and move to the music. Some around us just sat but I can't do that. Alan didn't wear his holey jeans and he even had the scruffy look. He sounded great but as the show went on I could tell he was getting tired. He said "It's Hotter Than A Hoochie, Coochie Up Here" Everyone laughed. He sang his new song SYDHTLMAM.....I love that song!!! He also sang Dixie Highway....I just feel this song will go number one. He threw out rolled up T-shirts I'm assuming....I guess you can tell I didn't get one, LOL The show was great and I will be going to Mineral tomorrow night. Hope Security is reasonable
