Backstage with INXS

This was so FUN! I just returned from two more INXS concerts in Southern California. The first show was in Anaheim at the House of Blues and was great! We were centerstage, 3 rows back standing. Later we ran into Tim Farris as we were walking out to the parking lot and got to say hello which was way cool. Below is Kirk Pengilly and I.

Next night in Indio at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino was fabulous! A real rock experience. Steve Lukather joined the band onstage for the last few songs and helped to bring the house down. We ran into Kirk Pengilly and his beautiful/model daughter April in the hotel, had the opportunity to say hello to JD and the band before the show and got to hang out with them and April backstage after the show!

The guys were soooo nice, as always, and said we could take pictures with them. Who could ask for more? A totally rocking concert, a really nice band AND cool pictures.... Good Times!

Fan or Stalker?

Ok, I'll admit this bordered on stalkerish... We saw JD Fortune, a devout vegetarian and current front man for INXS, as soon as we arrived at the hotel. He was walking ahead of us and approached an ATM in the hallway. After getting some cash he turned and continued the other direction heading towards the casino.

Not wanting to waste a photo op I went over and took a few shots of the ATM he had just used. My hand was the first to touch the keypad after his.

My BF called me a stalker and said hotel security was probably going to come and arrest me if I didn't knock it off.

Ha ha I didn't care. Later we got to chat with JD before the show. He's a really nice guy, soft spoken, sincere and always really sweet to me every single time I've seen him, which would be three times to be exact.
