Last weekend, I had the pleasure of going to see The Fray perform right next door at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Man-oh-man….not only was it my first time going to Red Rocks (I know, I know…but I’ve only lived here since October!) but The Fray is one of my personal all-time favorite bands. So to say I felt jump-up-and-down-like-a-little-kid excited is somewhat of an understatement. I was STOKED!
I arrived at the concert with our office manager, Cheryl, Cheryl’s daughter, and our expert transducer builder, Aly. The four of us arrived early enough to grab some food and see the opening acts, both of which were well worth arriving early to hear. It was pretty cold and more than a little rainy, but the performances definitely made up for it. Ponchos on and umbrella in hand (I almost poked out Cheryl’s eye with the umbrella but no worries, she came away unscathed), I barely even noticed the temperature as the Fray launched into one of the most spectacular performances I’ve seen.
About halfway through the set, the guys came up to play a few songs on a small platform right in the middle of the audience – the feel was intimate and peaceful. And even though the song’s lullaby qualities made me want to curl up in a nice warm bed and fall asleep, my favorite part was when they played “Be Still” and gave a warm Happy Mother’s Day wish to their moms.
Despite the cold and rain, the performance was more than worth it and I can’t wait to see them again. Thanks so much to The Fray for the tickets and for an awesome show!
