The DVD of the year!!

Last night was one of the coolest events of the year so far! Third day had a preview party of their new Revelations DVD. Hosted by Third Day and concerts by fellow present and previous tour mates Revive, Brandon Heath, and Jars of Clay! All of the concerts rocked! Revive brought their energy and opened up bringing everyone to their feet playing a mix of old and new songs. Brandon Heath got us all to sing along to "Open My Eyes" and Jars gave us all a taste of what to expect on their new album playing only new songs - really good new songs! If you haven't already, you need to get all of these albums. These concerts were followed up with a 30 minute meet'n'greet of all the artists, and then the grand finale. The DVD preview on the big screen. This was a phenomenal insight into the Third Day life on stage, behind the scenes, and into their family life. You meet everyone from their wives, Mac's parents, and the tour crew. Also included was what went into and lead up to the Music Re-builds concert event. I am not ashamed to say that being a part of making that happen, and then seeing it on the big screen made me cry. An entire city saw what God can do through the hearts of everyone that was on that tour.

Also included on the DVD - me 4 times! Me and my wife couldn't help but cheer all four times. One shot of me in a hall, one shot of just my torso during the meet'n'greet in the ATL, one shot of me walking quickly out of cameras site as the band walked down the hall, and one shot of me behind Switchfoot during the Music Re-builds promotional interviews. Woohoo!!!

I am still debating: are these driving directions? Or a request by a crazed soccer mom trying to regain her youth?
My friends hanging tough!

OK, so I stopped blogging since the tour ended. But this needed to be said! I went to the NKOTB concert last night. They did a great job (guilty pleasure). Natasha Beddingfield was phenomenal! and Lady Gaga...well, I cannot describe what happened and keep things to a PG-13 rating - ugh...I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit watching that. And needless to say I could have done without an entire arena of high pitched screaming, but I guess I should have expected that.

About Last Night...

So I didn't get the chance to go on stage exactly. I guess they were all looking for me so I could Heely across the stage with guitar in hand. Nobody let me know though. Oh well. I did get to watch the encore from the pit and get several pictures of the other guys up on stage for the encore. There was about 20 people on stage at one time, and only a few of them not armed with a guitar. Oh yeah, and did I mention one of them in an angel outfit? It gave new visuals to "I'll Fly Away". We also had an aftershow pizza party. We all hung out into the wee hours of the night talking, celebrating and saying our goodbyes.

It's Closing Time

We are in the final hours of the tour and a lot has happened today. Several goodbyes, some tears shed, and lots of pictures (to be posted later). We took a group picture also. I was able to attend devotions today for the first time - because I actually had time. Jenn and I used our passes to take pictures during Jars, Switchfoot, and Third Day's sets. The Jars guys made a Kodak moment with their white outfits. We had pasta for dinner. We cleaned out the road cases. "Switchfoot loves New Kids on the Block. Nuclear Hoedown made a slight comeback. I broke the doorhandle off a door and got trapped in the production office. I broke a candle on the floor by accidentally bumping up against a trash can with my booty. I had BBQ for breakfast. I got to Heely across the stage. And I think I get to go on stage during the encore tonight!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Switchfoot signing Christmas cards. Yes! They really hand sign all 2000 of them!

This is just a funny box I saw this morning when we stopped for gas. "Guaranteed to keep you from gelling!"
