REO and Chicago

Had a great time being silly with my pal Meldrop singing 80's songs tonight at the REO Speedwagon & Chicago concert. REO reminded me a lot of Foreigner in their energy and how their sound matched what I remember from when I listened to them years ago. Take It on the Run and Keep On Loving You were my favorites by them tonight and Chicago's horns blew me away. The trumpet and trombone combo was pretty amazing-- like two beautiful voices harmonizing together. They did a lot of new stuff but still squeezed in their classics including ballads I belted into my hairbrush as a teen.

I did video my favorite of the evening..."Hard to Say I'm Sorry" and loved that they did an extended-extended version with those horns. I will try to post that tomorrow but right now it's 12:30am and I'm ready to hit the sack.
