I haven't been to the Ryman in a dozen years or so, but I found this webpage from the Ryman that might be useful to you, @Midori78. http://ryman.com/about/faqs

I'm on the fence. I'd really like to get some good pictures because I've dealt with crappy cameras at concerts and conventions for years...

"The camera policy for concerts at the Ryman is set by the event promoter or performer. Please check your ticket to see if the policy is listed.  If photography is allowed, you may bring in a digital, disposable or 35mm camera."

- which means it's up to Ringo and his team....

"Video cameras, tripods, recording devices and cameras with telephoto or zoom lenses are not permitted inside the Ryman at any time."

- I've got a Canon Powershot SX530HS. Digital is okay, but it's got a kinda hefty zoom on it (50x), so then it's NOT okay. Make up your mind, theater people! XD

Thank you for the link, Ahhh Girl ^^ Gotta love those arbitrary rules! I could just bring it - Photos only, no flash of course. Technically it's allowed but I wonder where they draw the line on zoom lenses. I doubt they're going to nitpick every camera that goes in.

Currently in Nashville just chilling until showtime. About 5 hours to go until the doors open.

Currently waiting in line. T-minus 18 min to doors opening. It's a tad humid. But I'm going to have a great view, and it's going to be more cozy than I anticipated. It's going to be awesome! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Update: And the aftermath.

I have been awake for about 27 hours straight, since I got no sleep after getting home due to a painfully upset tummy. I'm going to blame sleep/food deprivation, and the lengthy drive on said lack of sleep, not by choice since I actually tried to eat but did not want to risk getting ill at the concert (that would have sucked). And I couldn't stay overnight in Nashville because I have work today. Not to mention I got to borrow an extra hour when crossing time zones but had to give it back, grrr. Currently getting my strength back even though I can't lay down yet (makes it hurt more) so I'm having soup then going to take it slow at work. Regardless - I was honored to share an auditorium with Ringo and his band, they were all right on key, sounding awesome and having a blast. I also got a few nice goodies while I was in Nashville including a tiny crankshaft music box that plays part of Yellow Submarine. ^^ a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

I got a fair bunch of photos, here is one. I will see if I can show the rest soon.

Oh, and my guitar should be arriving today. Things turned out rather nicely this weekend overall. ^^

Okay after some sleep, here are the songs I remember them doing. There was another they did and I'm pretty sure Richard Page named it "You Are Mine". And one or two others I didn't recognize but it was all fantastic music, of course.

It Don't Come Easy

Photograph

Yellow Submarine

Hold the Line

Boys

What Goes On

I Wanna Be Your Man

Rosanna

Black Magic Woman

You Are Mine

Bang the Drum

Kyrie

Oye Como Va (spell-check please -- Thanks Necko!)

I'm the Greatest

Love is the Answer

Broken Wings

Africa

With A Little Help From My Friends /Give Peace A Chance

Random kleenex and hand towels were thrown. Todd was bouncing all over the place, kicking the air, jumping up and down while back to back with Richard Page playing guitars, and Ringo did jumping jacks!  Later in the show Ringo came on stage with a towel around his neck which he then tossed into the audience, and a small girl caught it, who then proceeded to have a happy spaz attack for the remainder of the show.

I heard the start of floor-stomping for an encore, but some of the crew was already coming out on stage to disassemble the equipment immediately after so that didn't last long. ^.^

Great show. Wish I had had more energy to stand but I totally did the double peace sign thing. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

She appeared to be having the time of her life. She was trying to hand Ringo a note, she was having someone hold her so she could get closer to the stage. They did hold hands briefly. And she pretty much had the best view in the house. Very lucky girl ^^

I think he spent about as much time in front with the other guys as he did behind the drums, if not more. He totally rocked the Ryman and I was a bit sad when it was over. Warren Ham did on occasion come out of his hidey-hole on stage right which was partly blocked, but still, great view and closer than I thought. This auditorium looks much larger in videos o.O

So Ringo's tour is done, and he mentioned "See you in October 2016" so I'm guessing I should be on the lookout for a late fall/winter tour? Or some sort of announcement?

Needless to say, I'll be watching like a hawk a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

He went there last year, apparently he visited Victoria, Vancouver, Penticton, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Toronto and Montreal.

He hasn't been in Ireland since the year I was born 🙁

He did that the last time we saw him down here in Fort Lauderdale. We weren't on the summer tour itinerary, and he ended up adding a couple of dates in the fall including us,  we saw him that October. This is what I'm hoping he does again this time.

And the set list hasn't varied at all from the last time we saw him either.

Thank you @Necko !  Updated the spelling, and also added Todd's Love is the Answer to the list.

By the way, if you're interested, setlist.fm is usually a pretty good source for that sorta thing.

The Ryman is an amazing place. If you didn't know, it's got the 2nd best natural acoustics in the states (Mormon tabernacle is first). My uncle & I saw the Wednesday grand ol' opry and it was so much better than the new big new auditorium the main show is in now (and the whole complex is such a tourist trap 🙁 I did so want to see Mudcrutch there in June, but I will be surprised if they don't make a DVD of the show. Unfortunately an unforseen expense came up that took precedence over this show and Abbey Road on the River (Paul concert!).

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day
