As I mentioned in the previous post, the whole family went to WinterJam last night. It was the first concert for the kids. They had a blast.
We got there shortly after things kicked off with Mandisa. That woman has some serious pipes. Since we got there a little late, we ended up sitting behind, and to the the left of the stage. Still, it was a pretty decent view.
After that, Newsong played 2 short sets. They performed an incredible version of “People Get Ready”, but everything else seemed sort of dated and out of place. (It had been a long time since I heard “Arise My Love”.)
BarlowGirl was up next. I’ve seen them twice now, and I have to tell you, those ladies know how to rock. My 4-year old son was particularly impressed by Lauren. He liked how her hair was blowing as she banged on the drums. They posted a video on YouTube of their dog watching everyone in line for the Wichita show. It was funny hearing them try to figure out how to pronounce Koch Arena.
Skillet was the last act, and they flat-out ROCKED!I’ve never seen them live, but I can’t wait to go back. As you can see, the pyrotechnics were pretty cool. My six-year old daughter was trying to find a place to hide; my son wanted more.
Supposedly, they will be touring with Thousand Foot Krutch soon which would be a heck of a show.
Let me know if you were at the show too!
