Mid Life Crisis v2

OK, so we have an outdoor concert theater near us (about 10 – 12 miles away) called the Nissan Pavilion.

A few years ago when my then high school son was kinda-sorta-looking-wanting a job but didn’t know what he wanted to do and thought working for minimum wage at McD’s wasn’t worthwhile, I practically had to drag him kicking and screaming to an Open House Job Fair at Nissan. I explained to him that if I had had a place like this in my backyard when I was growing up and had a chance to work there I’d be there in a heart beat.

Well, low and behold he got a job as an usher there and actually enjoyed it. Hmmm, working at a concert hall getting paid to listen to music and keep the rowdies in line… I could see how one might enjoy that. Duh…

Well this weekend they are holding another open house and I bet the turn-out is going to be overwhelming considering so many folks are looking for work. But hey, I am thinking of giving it a try. Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and they will hire me.

A quick look at the preliminary season line-up shows many of the regular standbys already booked. Some actually look interesting and I wouldn’t mind “working” the show.

The 2009 Country Megaticket
No Doubt with Paramore
Def Leppard with Poison and Cheap Trick
Depeche Mode
Dave Matthews Band
Crue Fest 2
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band (yes twice)

Though not exactly my cup of tea… The country mega ticket is actually a group of country shows…
WMZQFEST with Rodney Atkins
George Strait
Rascal Flatts
Brad Paisley
Kenny Chesney
Toby Keith

Kind of an OD of country if you ask me but hey, we are in Virginia after all…
Not to worry, they are always booking more shows of lots of different artists and bands throughout the year and besides, I think some of the other shows already booked will more than make up for it…

Over the years my son Eric has seen and heard lots of different artist, bands and genre of music. From Rush, The Boss, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, (yes most of the country artists listed above), Ozz fest, various Jazz artists (sorry I forget exactly who), to some of the more modern folks like Disturbed, Linkin Park, System of a Down, Korn, Evanescence.

And to think, at first he did not want to work there... Sheeesh!

But, now that I think about it, If I do end up getting a job there, I will have to put up with all the (kids) working there who made comments like... Who's Bruce Springsteen?...

Or "Who are the Eagles?" I got that question from a co-worker last night. C'mon, are you kidding? (I am going to see them at the Fargodome Sunday night.)
