I'm so excited!

Star Wars In Concert

If I don't get to go to this, I'll be so devastated it won't even be funny. To be perfectly honest, I'd much, much, much rather go to this than Celebration V. Especially since I'd probably have a better chance of getting there.

At the moment, the closest scheduled performance will be in Oklahoma City, which is 11 hours away. I'd have to miss 3 days of school, which could be bad. Does anyone have any idea if they're going to expand it toward the East Coast any? Houston, Mobile, or especially New Orleans would be soooo much more feasible. Though I'd drive to OC in a heartbeat if that's what I'd have to do. Although getting the parents' permission would be the trick...

However, if it were closer, it would almost definitely be fine with them. And I'm dying to go! So somebody please say it'll be moving this way...! Sad

It's going to be near me October 1 & 2, but I can't afford it & I can't get there... The TicketMaster packages look cool. The $403 'Meet & Greet Package' looks amazing, but who really has that kind of coin to spend?

Agh! It's coming to Houston now! My mom said if it came to Houston we would consider it! And my sister's ecstatic because the Narnia Exhibition will be in Houston that same week! Isn't that crazy? I say it's meant to be! Oh, I hope, I hope, I hope...*crosses fingers*

Cool! Good luck Mara! (but we Jedi don't do luck. We trust in the Force. ) Very Happy

I want to go when it gets to Portland, but funds may prevent me like being Corellian stops me from using my TK.

Whoo-hoo! It has been done! We now have the tickets in hand! Check out the pictures below for the exciting journey there and back. I just had to pick them up in person. Especially so I could share the experience with all of you. Wink

The city from afar as we cross the world's longest bridge:


And really, it's the longest bridge in the world. Or it was the last time I checked. The Lake Ponchatrain Causeway. Also, you can see the Superdome on the far right of the group of buildings if you look closely. It's got a white dome. Hard to see against the clouds. Smile

The Superdome almost there:


The New Orleans Arena:


Vader was there to greet us:


Star Wars In Concert with tickets in hand - Whoo-hoo!:


Superdome up close:


And now a very special picture just for OMB:


Looks like Darth Elmo's going to visit the greatest building in his state after all! Very Happy

That last picture is. so. freaky. Shocked

But really, cool stuff, and what a coincidence. I'm wondering if he did that just because I mentioned it. He's always a step ahead! Wink

Thanks for that, it really made me laugh. Laughing

You're welcome! I'm telling you, I about fell over laughing when that came up. And I think I was subconciously scared to death. I'm not sure. But yeah, Darth Elmo is always watching, and he's most definitely a step ahead. Always. Confused

And Ben, here's the view from our seats:

Reepicheep! It's coming your way! I don't know how far Montreal or Toronto is from you, but that's where it's going. You should definitely check it out! Smile

I'm still hoping against hope that I'll get to go while it's in New Orleans. Smile
