Jen and I were able to get last-minute tickets to see Chris Isaak in concert last night at Wente Winery in Livermore. Tickets were really expensive, but we were able to get them for MUCH cheaper due to the fact that the people who were supposed to have them cancelled last minute.
We showed up around 7:00 for dinner, the food was very good (and for the ticket price, it better be!) and we enjoyed some roast beef and chicken. Chris got on stage at the scheduled time (8:15) and rocked the house until 10:00. He played all the hits, including my favorite Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing as well as a great cover of Roy Orbison’s Only the Lonely as well as Wicked Games of course.
This was totally last minute and Jen was able to get her folks to come over to babysit CJ and give us the opportunity to catch the show.
Me, I’m not a huge fan of Chris Isaak, but Jen ADORES him and would probably leave me for him without even saying good-bye on her way out the door! 😉 She had a great time and I’m glad we were able to make this happen for her. She wanted to get tickets when we first found out he was performing, but the show sold out within minutes of going on sale.
