Linkin Park Underground Tour 3/15/2003

Pulled this one out of an old CD-RW of scanned 35mm film images. Only a handful of these are any good to my own photographer standards but I figured other Linkin Park fans would get a kick out of looking at 15 year old concert photos. And only one photo from the meet & greet because I barely got through talking to Mike Shinoda before my brain lost all function and forgot the ability to take photos while meeting the rest of the band lol

One of my favorite concert queue memories was when the tourbus rolled in to the parking lot around the corner and a bunch of the fanboys in line went chasing after it while us girls just stood there looking at each other like “aren’t WE supposed to be the stereotypical crazy fans that chase after tourbuses?!” lol

And then a crew guy left the door to the club ajar so those of us near the front of the line got to hear the soundcheck (some even snuck inside shhhh) and got to hear Chester’s screaming rendition of Happy Birthday to Joe Hahn.

QUEEN + Adam Lambert in St. Paul 2017

Saw Queen + Adam Lambert last Friday in Minnesota and it was incredible from start to finish! My half hour struggle to purchase tickets when they first went on sale became the luckiest moment ever when my just okay floor seat 21 rows back ended up being FRONT ROW at the end of the stage’s catwalk! I have never been front row for a show of this caliber before, and definitely have not been front row for anything Adam Lambert related in spite of my best efforts (seriously I was once first in line for GA and still ended up three or four rows back) so this was a very special treat. And it made my little photographer’s heart very happy to be able to knock out some shots without a bunch of phone screens blocking the views.

And at one point Adam actually stopped to tell me he liked my shirt. To an entire sold out arena! WHAT?! Talk about a highlight for life! So pleased someone else caught it on video so I can relive that moment on the daily. I’ve always joked that we have an eerily similar taste in fashion so it was nice to have that thought somewhat confirmed lol.

David Cook @ Deadwood Mountain Grand 6/2/2016

After seven years I finally got to see David Cook in concert again! Such a great show! Hopefully I won’t have to wait another seven years for the next one. Here’s a few photos from the night. Unfortunately the spotlight washed out David’s face a ton so a lot of my shots were beyond saving.

Adam Lambert in Vegas 2016

And now here’s my second photo blog from my Week of Adam. As fantastic as the Denver show was, Vegas is hands down the best Adam Lambert concert I’ve ever been to, period. General Admission crowds are just at a whole ‘nother level of awesome! We arrived to the queue at 9:30am, and ended up being the only ones in line for regular GA until almost 2pm! Unfortunately there were over 200 (!!!) Early Entry VIPs for this show, so in the end I was still 3 or 4 rows back. I lucked out as everyone in front of me was shorter than me (perks of being a 6 foot tall chick I guess lol) but still. Someday, Adam. Someday I will finally get to see you from the front row.

As I already mentioned on the Denver post, feel free to post these images on fansites/twitter/etc just PLEASE don’t remove my tag. I’d also love it if you linked back to this website.

Adam Lambert in Denver 2016

Spent the last few days traveling to see Adam Lambert’s The Original High Tour! He is amazeballs! Here is my first of two concert photo blogs. This batch isn’t quite as good in my opinion, being further away and up in the front row mezzanine, but man switching to black & white really helps fix the photos with faces washed out by the lights. Speaking of OH MY GOD THAT LIGHT SHOW WAS INCREDIBLE! You could never properly appreciate this light show from the front row. Anyway, feel free to share these images on other fansites/twitter/whatever just PLEASE don’t remove my tag. Linking back to this website would also be really awesome of you to do.
