I hate crowds, I’m afraid I’ll get trampled in a mosh pit where I’ll catch tuberculosis and someone will try to safety pin my nipples. I’d even sprung for the deluxe tickets where I got to go to the pre-show sound-check party and stand in front of the stage for the concert. I’d given my husband Henry two children and my youth. Hasn’t Gavin suffered enough from last year’s attack in New York? From what I remember of the performance Gavin was awe-inspiring.
What if Gavin saw me in the crowd — yes a woman twenty years older than most of his fans, but with excellent night vision — and he and Henry got into a fight over me? While I was happy for Gavin I was distraught for my feet which were enslaved in a pair of platform heels. Suddenly I was back in fourth grade standing on a toilet in the girls’ bathroom trying not to breathe as my 10-year old Bully Nemesis peed in the next stall sharpening her switchblade. Let me tell you, if the mortars are coming in, you’ve been flanked and the Jerrys are coming over the top with fixed bayonets, Gina’s the one you want at your side.

Bethany Joy Lenz is an American actress, director, producer, and musician, best known for her portrayal of Haley James Scott on The WB/CW television drama One Tree Hill.“Not only do I love a challenge, but I also wanted something new to sing,” Gavin explains.“I’ve listened to my favorite songs 5,000 times, and I love them, but sometimes it’s hard to go home and put on that album and listen to it for the five thousand and first time.Shortly after internationally acclaimed opera singer Mary Garden crooned “Ave Maria” on Stage Rock this week in 1911, she gushed: “Never in any opera house the world over have I found more perfect acoustic properties.” “I predict that someday, 20,000 people will assemble there to listen to the world’s greatest masterpieces,” she wrote. The dramatic twin fins of monolithic sandstone that harbor a historical record dating back 250 million years have hosted a much shorter but equally inspiring record of musical performances in the past century.“It makes your hair just stand up when you think about the artists who’ve been here,” says Erik Dyce, who has shepherded Red Rocks marketing for Denver’s Theatres and Arenas Division for the past 23 years. It’s overwhelming when the venue overpowers the artist.” Red Rocks has well served Denver, which acquired the venue in 1941 for ,000 and quickly elevated the 868-acre park and venue to its crown jewel in an already impressive trove of mountain parks. It was either Violent Wallet Girl or one of her equally loaded, bleary-eyed, Amazonian friends. “Oh, yeah, that was you.” “That’s right, I’m so glad I found it for you and returned it with everything intact.” “Oh, right, I guess that was nice.” “I was looking at your ID so I could find you and I noticed you’re in the military.” “Yeah, I am, I just got back from the front lines in Afghanistan.” (Afghanistan, did she really think I’d be intimidated by ? The poking stopped, but Blotto Wallet Girl still kept inching right over the top of me until I was behind her trying not to breathe on her in case she had a Korengal Valley flashback and accidentally gutted me like a trout (not that I was scared. Eventually my sister (who can be a bit reckless), pulled me in front of Ingrate Wallet Girl and took a position between us.
