TOUR 2007 (Page 12)
"THESE PHOTOS AND REO REPORTS FROM THE ROAD REALLY RAWK!"
I received an email and photos from longtime www.daveamato.com photo submitter Cindi Carter who really Rawks! Get it? Rawks sounds like Rocks. That is an inside joke. She likes to say "Rawk" in all her emails sent here instead of "rock" ... which I happen to think is really cool.
"These are from August 30th (taken) at the Pechanga Resort, in Temecula, California.
REO was on fire!
It was Rick, the truck driver's birthday, and Kevin called him out on stage to get his birthday present! It was a beautiful signed guitar!
Todd Angie, Bill and I all had a rockin' time!"
|Below are a couple of shots of Rick and his birthday present ...|
|... and some absolutely rockin' shots of the nights show:|
|I received an email from "Tina Bradshaw and Amy" who took two cool photos of Dave at a recent 2007 show. I like how the cell phone was captured in the second photo below ... it's an added effect:|
Lisa Miller took the shots that follow at the Lawenceburg, IN show on September 28, 2007. She writes:
"Well I made it to the Lawrenceburg, IN show and REO rocked, It was such an awesome concert ... Dave had these bright green shoes on, they were awesome so I took a picture of them, not to many people get close enough to see their shoes."
Above: A photo by Lisa Miller of Dave's green shoes.
All I have to say is ... some fans focus on the guitars ... some on the shoes ... we give you a little bit of everything here at www.daveamato.com.
John McLaughlin sent in a story and some great shots taken at the Des Moines (Altoona) Iowa, Prairie Meadows Casino/Events Center show on October 5, 2007.
(Note: the writing below also currently appears on Kevin Cronin's website. We thought we would include it here to go along with the photos that follow. It's such a Mmmm-Mmmmm-rockin-good heart warming story.)
"On Sunday evening, September 30th, a large tornado cut a 22 mile path across central Iowa, damaging or destroying homes and businesses and disrupting the lives of hundreds of Iowans. Local Des Moines meteorologist and chopper pilot "Copter John" McLaughlin surveyed the damage from his helicopter and wondered what could be done to help lift the spirits of these hard working Iowans.
John, please pass along our best wishes, thoughts, and prayers from everybody here at www.daveamato.com to all those effected by the tornado and thanks so much for sharing the photos and story.
Cindi, Tina, Amy, Lisa, and John ... thanks for the photos ... there is no doubt that:
"THERE ARE NO FANS LIKE YOU!
YOU ARE THE BEST!
and of course ...
YOU ALL RAWK! "
Dave fans ...thanks for reading and viewing ... take care ... T.L. Photo Editor, www.daveamato.com
