The good news is that I’m not traveling…and the bad news is that I’m not traveling to see Duran Duran. 🙂 That’s OK though, I will get more than my fair share of shows coming up here…including one I’ve been plotting with Amanda for the last few days!
Assuming that all is well with Simon and that the shows will absolutely go ahead as planned, I’ve made arrangements to get myself out to Chicago in October for couple days! I’m excited because Chicago is my second hometown, and I’m looking forward to seeing friends and some crazy band that is apparently going to be there. I wasn’t planning on going to this show since it lands on the same weekend as my husband’s birthday, but I am going to fly out and back before his actual birthday, so I will stay in his good graces. (thank goodness for frequent flier miles!) I don’t have a ticket to the show yet, but I’m working on it. (and if you’ve got a good ticket you’re trying to sell, send me a note to the dailyduranie@gmail address!!) I’m just waiting for the day when my husband announces he’s going on tour to see a favorite band of his own and he tells me he’ll be back in a month or more….. 😉 You should see the spreadsheet I’ve already had to start in order to cover all of the drop-offs, pick-ups and time tables for my kids while I’m gone…and this is for just two and a half days!!
This tour certainly feels like it’s been a long time coming, doesn’t it? Kind of like we’ve been discussing it for a mere 9 months or so now….
I’m sure it must also feel like that for the band. Can you imagine getting completely ready, practicing, getting everything completely organized and planned, and then ending up canceling the entire thing? Now they’re ramping up to start the process all over, and while I am sure this is not what any of them had expected or wanted, I have a feeling it’s all going to work out just fine in the end.
To those who are attending the UK gigs this next week: have a great time and enjoy!!!
