THIRD DAY on the third day & thing to do #29

I wrote this blog before Mark Lee told us to post something humerous about Third Day. There are WAY too many of those times to pick from...so I'll just give you this and refer you HERE to see other Third Day related blog entries.

On April 1st I went with Joanne to Fayetteville NC. The goal: the see my 40th Third Day concert! I'm not even close to some of my friends (Corrine, Jamie, Traci-I know they have seen over 50 shows!) but hey it is my milestone! I've been going to Third Day concerts since 1995 (does that at least count for longevity?) Anyway...it would be hard to pick my favorite shows but this one would be in the top 5!!! We had front row seats in front of Mark Lee so my pictures are a Mark Lee "love" fest. I did actually get some good pictures of Scotty (he is hard to get most of the time). Tai and David were difficult. I got Mac but the side of his face mostly. He didn't venture to our side often (we picked on him at the Meet and Greet about it). I think it is because he is left handed (so am I) so he tends to go to his left while on stage. No matter...great show!

The show started with "This is who I am". I haven't heard this song at all since the Dallas Texas show-I've missed it! It is just a fun song. I don't remember the order of the songs but here is what was played:
This is Who I am
Rockstar
Tunnel
Call My Name
Thief
Got a feeling
Cry out to Jesus
King of Glory
God of Wonders
Consuming Fire
Run to You
Slow Down
Otherside
Revelation
*Acoustic Set*
I will always love you
Sky Falls Down
GIVE!!!
Blackbird
Love Song

Very nice mix of Old School and new! I think the guys were having a great time!!

Speaking of my 40th show. We went to the Meet & Greet before the show. I told Mac and David it was my 40th show. Mac asked if I had any request and of course I said "Give". It is my favorite song period! Well during the acoustic set Mac took requests. They played "Sky Falls Down" then asked if there was another song. David saw me and pointed at me. Mac told me that "he didn't know the words". He turned around to face me and told me I could mouth the words to him. We (the band and I) told Mac that David knew the words and ....David Carr sang the song!!!



Mark Lee also helped Mac sing "Sky Falls Down" during the acoustic set. It was a great time!



Well the real reason you came here...onto my pictures.

Before the show Meet and Greet (very quick but I got my poster signed finally!)



Mac comes out to sing with Revive






This is the greatest picture of a cymbal EVA!!!!



One of MANY MANY of Mark Lee!







I finally got some decent pictures of Scotty!







Where's David Carr?
"Here I am" -David Carr

"I'm hiding again" -David Carr


This is from the back of the coliseum...I thought the screen was cool.

I know this is blurry but I love the look on David's face.











God of Wonders



I got VERY VERY few pics of Tai.
"Call my name" I LOVE to hear Mac see this song live!

Can you say...BAD MIKE STAND!!!



"If you had any fun here tonight it was because of Mark Lee"













The show always ends WAY TOO SOON!

HEY! thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment at my blog today! great pics yourself... i CANNOT get a decent pic of david. he always turns out red and blurry. i generally get within the first 8 rows in the center section, and from there he's so far back from the rest of the band that there's too much smoke filtering thru the lights to get a clear pic of him. yours are amazing! what kind of camera are you shooting?

i like your blog layout too, btw... it looks like a scotch tape dispenser :-)

you have me by about 15 or so shows. i know envy is one of the seven deadly sins, but i'm envious!

adding you to my feed reader. keep up the good work on your blog!

Your pictures totally rock! I was asking everyone on the message boards who was the person with the 40th show sign. I saw you at the M&G and I knew I saw your face before but didn't know who you were. I noticed the guys were talking to you like they knew you well. Next time I'll have to introduce myself. Congrats on the milestone. That was my 4th show. Long way to go... looking forward to the ride.

Don't know why my post didn't show up! I was at the Fayetteville show also. I was asking who the person was with the 40th show sign. Now I know. I saw you at the M&G and recognized your face probably from other postings. Next time I'll introduce myself. Awesome milestone. This was my 4th concert. I've got a long way to go but will totally enjoy the ride there!
