#31 - Collective Soul
When: Saturday July 31, 1999
Where: Bronco Bowl Dallas, TX
Opening Act: Oleander
Special Notes: Where do I start? We had general admission tickets on the floor and pushed our way up front. There were only two people between us and the gate. We were less than 10' from the stage; the band was SO close. It was totally unbelievable! Plus the fact that Collective Soul puts on an awesome show. I can't say enough how about much fun this concert was. :o)

#32 - The Cult
When: Wednesday August 11, 1999
Where: Bronco Bowl Dallas, TX
Opening Acts: Neve, Splendor,  New American Shame
Special Notes: We had general admission tickets to the show and got there just after the doors opened and hour before the show started. We got the best spot in the house, front row & center stage with our hands on the rail. It was a bit of a wait until the show started so we ended up making friends with our surrounding counterparts for the night. The first band up was Neve. They ended up being really good and getting the crowd warmed up. After Neve, Splendor came on. During the second song I looked over and the lead singer of Neve was upfront watching show with us. We talked to him for a few minutes and ended up getting a picture with him.Splendor is a really good band and I was surprised by them. But early in the show, either the 5th or 6th song, they started pulling people from the crowd and before I knew it, there were at least 30 people on stage hopping about. Security quickly pulled everyone offstage, including the band. Oh well. The next band was New American Shame. I didn't even know they were going to be there. Hell, I didn't even know who they were. But they ended up being awesome putting on a great show. Finally, The Cult came on, opening up with Little Devil. The whole concert I had my hands glued to the rail on both sides of Stephanie, struggling to keep her from dealing with the pushing and shoving. Regardless of the pain and the bruises that appeared the next day, we'd do it again in a second. At one point Ian was at the edge of the stage right in front of us. I reached out and he slapped my hand. That was something I'll never forget! They ended up playing every one of their hits. This was the second time I'd seen The Cult but that concert and all in between didn't compare to this one. This was one concert I was glad we took a camera to! All the photos on this page were taken with a $5 disposable camera. Not bad, huh?

#33 - Duran Duran
When: Saturday August 22, 1999
Where: Starplex Dallas, TX
Opening Act: Erin Evermore (mmmm, ok)
Special Notes: Who expected Duran Duran to go back on tour? We had great seats and it was an awesome show. They played all of their hits from the past. What memories!

#34 - Queensryche
When: Friday October 29, 1999
Where: The Joint@Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas, NV
Opening Act: None
Special Notes: We had 2nd row tickets and it was so awesome! There was no security pit so we could literally touch the stage. They sounded great and played a lot of their hits but only for an hour and a half. Great show anyways!

#35 - Bush
When: Sunday December 12, 1999
Where: Reunion Arena Dallas, TX
Opening Acts: Bowling For Soup (local band), Low Fidelity All-Stars, Blink 182
Special Notes: The average age of the crowd was probably 16 so we felt real old. The concert started at 7:00 and Bush was late getting there and finally got on stage about 11:00. By then everyone was restless and the fat chick standing up in front of us wouldn't move so we left early. But everyone sounded great.

#36 - Duran Duran
When: Thursday July 27, 2000
Where: Smirnoff Music Center (previously Starplex)
Opening Acts: Don't know, honestly didn't really care
Special Notes: More FREE tickets! Great concert. We had a blast! My only complaint is they didn't play Reflex. What is a Duran Duran concert without hearing Reflex? Oh well, maybe next tour.

#37 - Def Leppard
When: Wednesday August 9, 2000
Where: FRONT ROW at Smirnoff Music Center (previously Starplex)
Opening Acts: The Unband; I've never heard of them and the way the sounded, I doubt I ever will again.
Special Notes: The concert was so awesome it's not even explainable. Click
here to see my Def Leppard page and see the pictures. And best of all, more FREE TICKETS!

#38 - Ozzfest
When: Friday August 18, 2000
Where: Smirnoff Music Center (previously Starplex)
Opening Acts: (we saw) Incubus, Static X, Godsmack, Pantera and with Ozzy headlined
Special Notes: We weren't planning on going and didn't decide until the day before to go for Steph's birthday, which is coming up. We were out there almost 8 hours, most of it in the 100+ Texas heat but we had a great time. Ozzy was great, up to his usual antics of getting as much of the crowd as he could soaked with water hoses and buckets of water on the stage. Pantera is not really my style of music but they have a great stage show and really got the crowd into it. If this is the last Ozzfest as rumored, I'm really glad we went.

#39 - Tonic
When: Saturday September 16, 2000
Where: Deep Ellum Live Dallas, TX
Opening Acts: None that I know of
Special Notes: We went to a Stars game before the show so we got there after the show started. They sounded really good and we got a great view of the band. Once again, the show was courtesy of FREE TICKETS!

#40 - Creed/Collective Soul
When: Monday October 2, 2000
Where: Smirnoff Music Center Dallas, TX
Opening Acts: Collective Soul played 1st
Special Notes: This was the 4th time we've seen Collective Soul and they always put on a great show. Ed, the lead singer, was wearing a dress or a kilt for some reason. Is he Scottish? Creed was good too. They have a great stage show but I don't get into all of their music. We left a little early since it was a Monday night. But still a good concert.
