In the beginning... it started out as a Celebration of Women. Sarah McClaughlin, Sheryl Crow, The Indigo Girls, and the Dixie Chicks traveled around for a couple of years doing sort of mass concerts, it wound up being more of a lesbian movement and I took my poor 14 year old son and lil baby sister to the last season of it.
It was horrible, there were food lines that took 1 1/2 hours to get through and not enough bathrooms or porta-potties, I did not realize that the four BIG WIMMEN off to the side of the line about 10 feet away (in flannel and comfortable shoes) were in line and almost got the crap beaten out of me when nobody advanced and I almost entered the potty.
It was 'Orrible... by the time we arrived and drove past the EXTREMELY GRAPHIC Abortion protesters, of which there were about 100 with really disgusting LARGE Posters, (had to stop meself from running them all down with my Great Big Quad Cab 4x4 '98 Dodge Ram Pickup... bunch of ignorant sods... if you cannot trust me with a CHOICE, why would you trust me with a child???) stood in the food line for 1 1/2 hours (in which a riot almost took place) and finally got in, we had missed the Dixie Chicks completely.
Then, there was a group of 5 idiots, mixed male and female, extremely P*ssed right in front of us, and they were the ONLY people standing AND Swaying back and forth, through Sarah McClaughlin's part of the show. I finally started pelting them with Ice just to keep from KILLING them. As you can no doubt tell, the entire experience was NOT one of my favorite concert experiences.
