AT&T Park, San Francisco
August 6, 2014
Sometimes Umlaut finds himself in places where he's completely out of his element. Anyway, one thing led to another and I found myself at AT&T Park, not for a Giants game, but for the final U.S. show of the On The Run Tour featuring the world's favorite celebrity power couple. The only other times I've seen shows at this stadium were Green Day and the Rolling Stones / Metallica which were both in 2005.
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words... so here are several thousands words about my experience on the run with Beyonce and Jay Z:
What? Oh right.. THE SHOW. So I found myself in a seat 27 rows from the stage. The Royal Couple came onstage and the entire stadium went nuts and I felt completely out of my element. By the time the dynamic duo were into their 4th song I was down the street at 21st Amendment enjoying excellent food and a good beer. After this pit stop I made my way back to the stadium, flashed the paper wristband, and watched more of the spectacle.
If you bought one of every Beyonce merch item you would have paid around $620. On the way back to the car, some pimply-faced teenagers called me a fag... which I was since I had just went to see Beyonce and Jay Z. All in all it was a night of easy adventure into a world that is not mine. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. SLAAAYEER!
