Bryan Adams at Toad’s Place, New Haven, CT

Photo of my 11 cd – Taken while playing around waiting for the show. I wanted to see if I could take a handheld with only blacklight…

I’ve moved the photos into a gallery on the botom, click on them for larger versions. Do not use or post these photos elsewhere. Due to the large number of photos that are preloaded, this page might take a while to load… Connie

Last week I actually managed to win tickets to see Bryan Adams at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT from bryanadams.com. The only way to get into this particular show was to win tickets from 96.5 or the fan club… The fan club was giving away 5 pairs of tickets to each of the acoustic promotional shows Bryan is doing for the release of “11” luckily I got one of the 5. Kind of amazing as I typically don’t win much of anything…

The show was last night, Monday May 5th at Toad’s Place in New Haven. There was some confusion as to the time he was to start. His site said 8pm and Toad’s site said 9pm. He ended up starting sometime after 9:30 and playing for about a hour and a half.

This is the second show I’ve seen at Toad’s Place… the other being Jules back in 99. The place hasn’t changed any nor has the crowd… college area (Yale) bar/club with people at the bar more interested in chatting than listening to a show… pity as it sucks for the performer. I know Jules ranted about it after the show – can image Bryan did the same…

Other big difference – I didn’t have a pass to bring my SLR so the photos I took were all taken with my little canon sd800 (no flash – don’t want to blind the guy, set on the manual setting with ISO800). Challenging lighting but I have quite a few keepers even with the point-and-shoot… and I didn’t have to wait for things to get developed as I was shooting film back in 99! Aah technology 🙂

On to the show…
