We went to the Prudential Center in Newark for the Bruno Mars extravaganza. Maureen bought the tickets last January and last night was the night. Despite the $100+ ticket price, we were four rows from the roof. We forgot our mountain climbing gear, but eventually breached the summit. Maureen isn't a big fan of heights, so it took her a while to acclimate to the altitude. 17,999 of the 18,711 seats were occupied by the time the show started. Bruno is a consummate, energetic entertainer. He has a great voice, plays a pretty mean guitar, and he and the band didn't stop moving until the curtain dropped. He combines loads of genres, in his performance, including 4-Tops, Temptations style choreography; a little James Brown; and loads of Michael Jackson. The set was pretty amazing with flashing lights, flames, explosions, and lasers. The crowd was all over the place. Teeny-boppers with their moms mixed with the tattoo crowd, and geezers like us. I'm not a fan of big arena shows, but I have to admit, Bruno excites a big crowd like a seasoned pro. My honey absolutely loved it.
