So, a couple of months ago my son asked me if, for his 25th birthday present, I would take him and his older brother to see Helloween in Vegas. Now, these cats could easily have done this on their own, but since I was bank-rolling it and have been to Vegas 30+ plus times, it made sense for me to go too. So, we landed in Vegas at about 2PM, rode the monorail, walked on the strip, visited a few hotels, had dinner, and wound up at Mandalay Bay for the show at the House of Blues about 6:45. Show started promptly at 8:30, ended at 11;15, and we are on plane back to Dallas at 1:30 AM. Now, I spent the 80s complaining about the lack of good music and totally missed these guys but I am catching up now. Lots of great stuff, and we all know that these guys are the true Godfathers. The show? Superlatives are easy and over-used, but this was indeed a GREAT rock concert. Lots of energy, great songs, and the guitar playing on the part of all four practitioners was very, very impressive. I'm almost 60 and such events as these are getting more difficult, but I sure am glad I did this one. And glad I could do it for my sons.
