RockStar back from tour



So besides putting on a craft show, making crafts,
shopping for treasures,
and taking care of the little one...
my husband got an amazing opportunity
to play with a well known band.
Well, well known for most teenagers, especially
the teenage girls who admire the lead singer to this band.
The band is called Panic! At The Disco.



Some of you who are blog friends with my mom Saturdayfinds
might have already read a bit about this on her blog, or read her or myself refer
to my husband as aka RockStar.


My husband is a singer and songwriter and plays bass guitar.
All though he does have his own band called The Brobecks,
he was asked to play bass guitar for Panic! At The Disco's
upcoming tour, due to their bass player leaving the band.
In the music industry this was a huge discussion
a to who would be filling in on bass guitar?
When it was released that my husband Dallon Weekes
would be, the press went crazy.
It was all over the music news; MTV, VH1, RollingStone
& SPIN magazine...to name a few.


My husband has played large crowds before, but
this tour was going to be HUGE sold out venues of
20,000 or more people...no pressure..right? ;)


He had to fly out to California to rehearse,


and then went on a three week tour,
covering most of the midwest and east coast.


Part of the tour was with No Doubt,
and the rest of the tour was with the bands
Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, and Chester French.



He had a great time and returned this past Sunday.
It was hard to have him gone
from us for that time, especially Amelie
always saying "daddy" and looking for him.
We had many phone calls and iChat with our
web cam.

I did fly out to his Minneapolis, MN
show. I took my friend Rebecca and we
had a blast. Of course she was completely
understanding when I stayed the first night in
MN with my hubby at the Hilton hotel the band was staying at.



With the baby at home with the mother in law,
my husband and I got to spend some much needed
time alone..it felt like we were dating again.
..and the fact that I got to really feel like
I was with a "RockStar"..he he ;)


Minneapolis was really pretty, but the actual town
the venue was in was called St. Paul. It's about
an 8 minute cab ride from Minneapolis.
It was very lush with plants and trees
and alot of old historical buildings and cobble stone streets.


The show was held at the Xcel Energy Center.


It was a blast, and of course we had VIP
treatment. I rode on the tour bus to the show..


we got to hangout backstage and eat catered food.
Got to meet the Blink 182 guys, and the Fall Out Boy
guys which includes Pete Wentz..you know
Ashley Simpson's husband...and of
course the Panic! At The Disco guys
Brendon and Spencer, who were very cool nice guys.

That tour is done now, and not sure what
the future holds, if my hubby will be playing again
with Panic! after they record their new album.
There is talk of that, so we'll see..


We will be flying to Cali in September
because they will be playing a movie premiere
party, because a Panic! song is in a movie coming out.
I'm just excited to go visit my mom,
and Amelie can see Grandma!..
and to have my hubby home again. ox

*We are so thankful and blessed
that Dallon got this amazing opportunity,
and all the love and support from family and friends.
