The venue is The Royale Boston. I used to frequent the building back in my swinging 20's when it was The JukeBox. I am interested to see how intimate the room is. The last time I saw The Boys was at the Agganis Arena at Boston University and that was a great show because every seat was a good one. They have a new album out called All You Need Is Now It has some really great songs on it. So far, I love The Man Who Stole a Leopard (love the title of that one too) and Leave a Light On. That last one is remniscent of Save a Prayer. My all time favorite song of Duran Duran's is actually The Reflex. I have it as my ringtone right now too!!
I had actually always planned on marrying Simon Le Bon but thought he was too old for me as the 12 year age difference was quite considerable when I was 14. The irony is that I married The Doc and he is 17 years older than me. I guess I have always had a thing for older men!
The concert will also be exciting because we are bringing Madigan. She has no idea and I don't plan to tell her what we are doing until we get there. When I last went to see them, she was very curious about where I was going and wanted to hear the songs I would be hearing live. Since then, she has become a fan.
I'll post my review. For now, I'll leave you with some pics from the last time I was in Simon's presence......

How cute are these???? They are the LL Bean Puddle Stompers and the price is good too $29.50. Madigan has loved sea turtles since pre-K when the class mascot was Sally the Sea Turtle. I will have to get final approval from the Diva herself but these could be a keeper!

We had a great Summer, one of the all time nicest weather wise that I'll ever see in my lifetime. We went to Aruba in June and came home to a demolished kitchen. We decided to renovate our 10 year old space to accomodate two cooks. Well, that project is still ongoing........yes you read that right. We have not had a kitchen for six months!!! I'll be sure to do a post on the new space.
I also turned 40 since I last wrote. I had these great visions of being 50 pounds lighter and being much healthier by the time I celebrated but that never happened. (see above notes on laziness and kitchen renovation) I still would like to work on that and maybe 2011 will be the year to do it!!!
I also destroyed my back in November. I have always had a lower back issue but never had it checked out. This time, I couldn't take the pain anymore and went to the MD office. My blood pressure was 155/100 when I got there. Can you say PAIN???? I had an MRI that showed herniated discs at L4, L5, S1 Started physical therapy 2 weeks ago and I can finally say I feel better. No more sitting at my desk though. I have to stand and get my work done. Not so easy but I ordered an adjustable key board and monitor system that should help.
Now, the Christmas rush is on and tis the season to be merry. I promise I will be checking back in to keep the entertainment rolling over here!!! For now, Happy Holidays!
