Sorry, no cameras allowed! I followed the rules so there are no pics for this report.
Last night a friend and I attended the Dolly Parton Backwoods Barbie Concert at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles. It was an AMAZING show! I am not really a big country fan but I have loved Dolly since I was a little girl and was so happy to see this great performer live. She is truly an entertainer, telling jokes and stories between songs and providing an overall great show experience. It was a great night and the Greek is a lovely venue. She sang a lot of songs from her new album, but mixed it in with old standards such as Jolene, Here You Come Again (my favorite), Islands in the Stream, 9 to 5, I Will Always Love you and Coat of Many Colors. I am guessing she is in her late 60s and boy, does she move when she sings! She is in great shape and keeps up with the best of them. She also sounds wonderful live and plays a variety of instruments.
The crowd was a random mix of a lot of fun people. We met a lot of different fans including this hilarious couple of guys that took a bunch of pictures with us in the Dolly tanks we had bought. Speaking of merchandise, I never buy anything like that at concerts, theme parks, etc. but I felt compelled to buy this really cute tanktop last night. I will try to post a picture when I get home. They had quite a few cute things.
So I think I can check another thing off my list, seeing a legend in concert. If you ever have the opportunity, go see her!!!
