How did I miss that he came back to the Dallas area? Oh well, probably didn’t have the money to go anyway.

So as I mentioned, quickly in fear of jinxing it, a while ago, I was able to get tickets to go to the show in Ft. Laud on Tuesday! And we have more stuff we need to bring up here anyway so it makes perfect sense to go down now, not just for the show.

I’m really excited! And curious… does anyone think there’s any chance of him signing my painting if I brought it to the show?

Does Ringo ever do that stuff or does he just leave it to Paul?

If he did, that yellow spot would be perfect for a signature and would make that painting so much more special to me. Any chance?

Ringo stopped signing autographs for anything other than his charity back in… 2011,  think.

I knew he was like that with fan mail, but I didn’t remember if he didn’t sign in person.

Still tempted to bring it, but shouldn’t if it’s pointless.

Will you be close enough for him to see it if you hold it up? That might be worth the effort.

@parlance

That’s what I was thinking. It may actually be good I missed him the first time, because those seats were pretty far back, but now I believe they’re row 15. So he could probably see it if others aren’t blocking the view from the stage.

Since I’m only 6 and a half hours away (a-hard-days-night-ringo-10) I should probably decide ’bout my painting. I mean, I’m sure a Ringo concert will be a giant mosh pit, so should I bring it when he probably won’t see it anyway?

Btw… RINGO!

I feel like I’m too excited about this, but I don’t care. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

That was sarcasm, but reading it back it sounds like I’m serious.

He can’t deny you.  He’s all about Peace & Love, and so is your painting.  

You might also want to tell him that Maureen was always your favorite Beatle wife.  There’s no way Pattie would find out.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

I think Barbara would be a better bet! a-hard-days-night-john-6

And if I have the opportunity to tell him anything that’ll be good enough, no signature necessary. Although one can dream…

@Mr. Kite, I think he will see it and love it even if he doesn’t sign it. Take it for his sake.

Yeah, I’ll take it. Maybe I’ll get a “Groovy poster,” or something between songs.

I left it in the car, no one else had anything and I don’t want to block anyone’s view.

Good point, Anna!

So I do regret not bringing in my painting because he looked right at me multiple times (which is good enough really), and probably would’ve said something. But he doesn’t seem like he’s stopping anytime soon so that means there should be a next time.
(Note to self: Listen to @Ahhh Girl)

The show was amazing! I enjoyed all the songs by the All Starr Band and was surprised I knew some. Ringo was just great, very energetic, jumping around, and his singing was also pretty amazing. Just being that close to a Beatle was cool enough! I actually enjoyed the tandem drumming, which is something I was reluctant of going in. They were playing different things half the time, so I could tell what Ringo was doing, and they complemented each other and the song so well. The songs Ringo chose to sing were all great, the only one I wish he added would be Octopus’s Garden . During Photograph he was kneeling down on the stage singing to get in a bunch of lucky people’s selfies.

Ringo aside, Todd Rundgren was probably the star of the show. He was hilarious, dancing around, making faces, and he sang, played guitar, bass, harmonica, piano, and percussion during different points in the show.

The lead guitarist was really good, and did the Santana parts (3 great songs) perfectly, for the ‘George’ guitar parts he did it differently, but it was still enjoyable.

The bass player was good, and was a really great singer as well. And the sax guy fit well into everything.

The whole band was just wonderful, they put on a great show. My seat was really close to the front, closer than I thought, so that was really nice, I’ll put up some video whenever I can edit it together.

In the end Ringo threw something out into the audience that he was wearing, and Todd threw out a few picks (not very far sadly, wish I got one a-hard-days-night-john-2).

It was a great show, and a great night! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Edit: and I hope this is coherent. I’m really tired!

I forgot to mention a Lennonesque moment when he told someone in the audience to, “Shut up! … But I mean that in a Peace an Love way. heart
