This concert I attended with my friend since birth, Lisa. We had tickets to see the Backstreet Boys in December of 07 and had to not go because we got one of the biggest snow storms and all of the roads to get to Hartford (where the concert was) ended up closed. Since somehow BSB managed to get to the venue (probably super early that day) they didn’t bother to cancel the show so we were out the $40+ we had paid on the tickets.

When the news was talking about another blizzard on February 22nd, we panicked. The Spice Girls tickets had cost us $100, so there was no way that we were going to just eat the cost of these tickets!

I was working from home, and in the middle of working lots of OT. (Why waste time commuting when you could be home working?) Lisa got the day off due to the snow. We decided come hell or high water we were making it to the show and left hours earlier than we normally would have to make sure we could take our time and still get there on time.

The great thing about this show was that there was no opening act! But the Spice Girls didn’t come on until 9pm. They played a bunch of songs and it was probably the most fun I had at a concert in a long time!

A highlight was when they threw stuffed animals on stage – Mel C told Geri she should be the rabbit because she was always FUCKING! At first I thought there was no way I had heard her right.. but one of the other girls said something like “Connecticut, look what you have done! You are making Melanie swear!” L.O.L
