Check out my trip report from the backstage tour, it's definitely worth it.

Willie Nelson at Sea World? Wow!

No really, I remember a while ago theme parks booked bands that made me say, "What? They're still alive?"

The coolest thing about these concerts is that they start right after you gorge yourself with the BBQ,I especially like the one at Sea World which is a buffet with pretty much everything you could ever want in a BBQ buffet.In Tampa it's different,no buffet but they have 6-7 different stands that sell BBQ from different regions known for BBQ.I've been the last two years to the Sea World one,two years ago it was great,Hall and Oates in concert and the entire pavillions area packed with people,this year it was like 40 degrees and wet and some weird crappy group called Yes that ended up having to play indoors due to the weather.At Busch Gardens this year was awesome,Pat Benatar and excellent weather,the only negative was Gwazi beating the hell out of me,it was around this time I started realizing how rough this ride has gotten.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!
