    Being in Florida all winter, we buy a season pass to Busch Gardens($10.00 more than day pass). Every week they have an 60s to 80s band playing. This week was Herman's Hermits with Peter Noone. They were quite good and aging myself, I could actually sing along to most songs! Hats off to the guys taking pics of live shows, not easy.
    Here is my feeble attempt at it. I was sitting back corner of stage.

    Wow, these people aren't retired yet?! Very nice shots, I can almost imagine what it's like to be there.

    You did very well.

    Why do old rockers always still have hair?

    Some pretty respectable shots.

    You are right about concert shots. The ever changing lighting is a challenge.

    Nice images! Ironic, my brother had them on the big screen in their community building when I visited Arkansas this summer. First I'd heard them in many years. Fun to hear those songs again. They sound pretty good!
