Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

Saw Michael Buble April 3rd in Seattle, with my wife and daughter. I had purchased seats on the floor, very near the stage. Buble and his band were fantastic, as usual, but I doubt I'll ever see another concert in Key Arena no matter who's playing. The place just wasn't made for acoustics. I think the last concert I saw there was Elton John, around 1980.

High point: Michael's stories about his hometown Burnaby, B.C./Seattle connections, and introducing several of his family members in the audience who came down for the show. Also having him stroll within arms length of me midway through the show. The guy has guts; there are a lot of CRAZY women in that audience.

Low Point: The group of extremely drunken and belligerent Canadian women seated directly behind us, who purposefully screamed and wailed in our ears for half of the concert. My daughter, who has a slight hearing problem, asked them politely to stop. That only encouraged one to lean right into her good ear and scream louder. They finally cooled down a bit after security talked with them. Had it gone on any longer, I'm sure we would have all been kicked out, or worse. I counted my blessings that at least they did not spill their drinks or puke on us. I mean, come on; this isn't Metallica or AC/DC we're banging to.

Other than that, it was a great concert.
