Bon Jovi Concert.... Take 2, in Glasgow!! July 3rd 2013

So a bit late I know, but on July 3rd 2013 we went to the second Bon jovi concert this year :) This time my sister came with us too. Here's how our day went.

The day before the concert (2nd), my sister stayed over, and guess what..... found out that night that she's pregnant!!! So joyous news straight away!!!

The next morning my aunt came round at 10 to watch the kids, and we left when Darren picked us up at about 10.45am.

We stopped off once on the way there, and I think it took us around 2 1/2 hours to get to Glasgow from Newcastle. The drive was fine, I think we were just so excited lol!

We parked, then went for something to eat at a nearby pub. Burger and chips, and it was really nice,. I had a bottle of Smirnoff Ice (which I've not drank since I was about 18 lol), and then a 'woo woo' cocktail!

We went straight into Hampden Park and got our place at about 4pm (after Darren had to go move the car as we didn't realise we parked in a permit only area :/), and sat on the floor for a while with a drink of pop and took some photos.

'Of Kings and Captains' were supprting Bon Jovi again, and they aren't too bad actually! But the other support band 'We Were Promised Jetpacks' were awful, I'd be very happy to never see them again!

Bon Jovi were a little late taking to the stage, about 20 minutes late I think, but when they arrived they sure arrived!!! The concert was fab, the crowd were much better than at Sunderland too.

    The concert was great, and as the Jon Bon walked around the Golden Circle bit we got to see him again, nowhere near as close as last time as we were just normal standing this time, but still good! The set was only on for under 2 hours, so not as long as last time, but I still enjoyed it. Check out some of the pics:

     Afterwards we ran down infront of the stage to get some photos of the licence plate sign:

    The drive back seemed to take ages, and we were all so tired, so the next day the kids stayed off school! 

    Hope these guys come back next year! With Richie this time though!
