post 9-11 show.....
Ten years ago today I was lucky enough to see the guys play what turned out to be a show that will always have a special place in my heart.......
This show was less than a month after 9-11, and i think we all remember the strangeness that had enveloped the country following the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. That funk that I can't even really articulate but can feel in the pit of my stomach when I think back on those days.
Throughout the show Perry did a lot of talking and there was a fair amount of improvisation. They were right along with us that evening. A night to come together and escape the troubles and worries that were going through all of our minds. But at the same time a night remind ourselves of who we are and that we weren't going to hide under a rock awaiting the next sucker punch.
"A Champion isn't just a man who can punch the shit out of somebody. A Champion is someone who can also take a punch. Washington, you are Champions. We are the Champions. I hope you all go out and live your life to the fullest like I do. Because I want to show up at your party next and have a good fucking time! O'kay, we're with you. We're with you!" - Perry prior to encore
see ya in a few weeks down in AC
