Sunday night a portion of the family took off and went to see Meatloaf in concert at UNI’s McCloud Center. Hubby and I have been Meatloaf fans for forever…our girls Kelli and Kalissa have been big fans too. Our son Karl likes any and everything classic rock so we went to see Meatloaf. Our daughter Kalissa is ESPECIALLY CRAZY for Meatloaf so she bought herself a VIP ticket, getting her a chance to meet and talk with him.
We snapped a picture of us before we left the house. Kalissa had Meatloaf sign it and hold it while a picture was taken so we could get a “family” picture with Meatloaf.
Kalissa got a great VIP treatment including pictures, time to talk, t-hirts and other fun goodies. The best perk was a front row center seat. The rest of us were a few seats further behind.
She got some great pictures….
I remember being 17 years old and having Meatloaf’s “Bat out of Hell” album. I was hiding the album cover as I knew my mom wouldn’t think much of it. I remember so vividly singing along and trying to write down the lyrics. I never thought 30 years later I would have five kids, living in Iowa and taking my kiddos to the concert. We had a fun time and it’s something I honestly will always remember.
We have such a WIDE taste of music in our family….one day we are at a Merle Haggard concert..the next Meatloaf.
