Whirl Wind Week: Merle Haggard Concert

It’s such a busy week around here with more irons in the fire than I can count!!

Tuesday night Hubby and I went to the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.  The legendary Surf Ballroom where Buddy Holly last performed before he died in the plane crash, host concerts throughout the year.  This concert was for Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson.

The Surf is a really unique place to go to a concert to.  The atmosphere is so reminiscent of old times.

The walls in the bar area are filled with photos of past performers.  I had to snap a photo of the Blake Shelton photo as Hubby and I had been to that concert too.

It’s fun to see all the old photos….

This is the wall with the newer performers on.   There are also a few guitars and things….here’s Brett Micheals’ guitar.

I took some photos inside the concert but none of them turned out the best….

The thing that isn’t the best about concerts there is that 90 percent of the people who attend have to stand through the entire show, but it was worth it!  There is just something neat about seeing these performers still performing.  They did a great job and the crowd was awesome.

This was one of the things on Hubby’s bucket list.  It was fun check one of the things off the list!
