Feeding my ‘Star Wars’ addiction

So I”ve been a little slow getting back into the swing of things after vegging out last week on vacation (aka drinking lots of beer and eating too much). The week started off with a trip to Denver to see my brother and his family, including a stop at the Denver-Dallas NFL game, and ended by feeding my “Star Wars” addiction.

So here are a few pictures from my trek to Arco Arena for the “Star Wars in Concert” tour, which included an exhibit of props/characters/scenes from the movies. It the whole thing was really cool. The orchestra was fun, and really into it (a lot less stuffy than your typical orchestra experience), plus there are lots of movie montages that retold the story, narration from C3P0 and pyrotechnics. They even played an encore, giving Vader a little more love. I highly recommend catching this show. I hope it comes to Fresno down to road.




These two are from the exhibit:

Show will NEVER come to Fresno

We do NOT get shows like that

Kathy Mahan says:

I’m optimistic it can make its way here, we’ve landed some pretty cool gigs.

katbon says:

I want to go.

Heather says:

I would have taken so many inappropriate pictures with Han Solo in carbonite.

brodiemash says:

Man that looks cool and from the other reviews I’ve read, I heard it was all kinds of “awesome”! Fingers crossed for a valley performance!

Kathy Mahan says:

Ha. Now that would be fun to see. We did pretend to click the key pad on the side to unlock him, but that is so PG.

katbon says:

Can we write to anyone to suggest that this show should come to Fresno? I’m trying to use my Jedi powers to see if that works.

Kathy Mahan says:

You can write to the promoter, which is Another Planet. Mike Oz tells me the company has done business in Fresno before, most recently the AC/DC and Dave Matthews shows. You can write them a message here.

Why would you say that…Fresno gets great shows
